Élections 2017 au Nunavut : le jour du scrutin, votez pour l’amélioration des soins de l’arthrite.
Les prochaines élections générales au Nunavut auront lieu le 30 octobre 2017. Comment peut-on améliorer les soins de l’arthrite ?
L’arthrite affecte environ 12 000 adultes de 15 ans et plus dans les Territoires (Territoires du Nord-Ouest, Nunavut et Yukon). Au nom des électeurs du Nunavut atteints d’arthrite, le comité ACE (Arthritis Consumer Experts) a expédié un questionnaire aux candidats se présentant aux élections de 2017 au Nunavut.
Veuillez noter que contrairement à la plupart des élections fédérales et provinciales au Canada, les élections pour l’Assemblée législative du Nunavut se déroulent selon un modèle de gouvernement de consensus non partisan dans lequel les candidats se présentent comme indépendants plutôt que comme candidat officiel nommé par un parti politique.
