Contact Elections Canada
The Federal Court has ordered Elections Canada to reconsider whether the federal election should be moved from October 21, 2019, as it falls on Shemini Atzeret, a Jewish holiday.
If the election isn't moved, thousands of Jews may be unable to vote, and observant Jewish candidates will be unable to compete properly.
B'nai Brith Canada is trying to get as many people as possible to contact Elections Canada to ensure they make the right decision and change the election date.
