We all know that Thanksgiving can be a time to celebrate with family (and hopefully an opportunity to contemplate the complex history between Canada and Indigenous peoples), but it can also be challenging – especially when it’s right before a federal election.
It might be hard to avoid politics at the dinner table, but we don’t think that’s the right way to go about it. It might be difficult at first, but having a respectful conversation with your family and friends might actually be more productive than you think.
Facts are key when attempting civil discourse. That’s why we’ve put together this handy Thanksgiving Toolkit. It might help you have a good meal, a great conversation, and maybe even a family trip down to the advance polls this weekend!

All Advance Poll locations are open from 9am – 9pm, October 11, 12, 13, and 14.
