About

This website was haphazardly created by unaffiliated Victoria resident, Danielle Leduc McQueen.

All information was compiled and collected in my spare time from candidate websites, newspaper articles, and LinkedIn profiles. I’ve tried to reference sources where relevant and keep a neutral stance, but this website was necessarily informed by my perspectives - I’m a believer in the importance of democracy, and think government should be informed, policy-driven, and inclusive. I'm also a millennial renter, and new mom.

I created this site to hopefully encourage more people (especially young people) to get interested in municipal politics, get informed, and get voting.

I hope to continue to edit and update candidate summaries as the election approaches and more information becomes available.
