    Gravenhurst Election – Aligned Candidates


    The ten lake associations listed above are pleased to announce their Gravenhurst Aligned Candidates List for the upcoming October municipal election. The list reflects those candidates whose views best align with the core values of our members and have been approved by the Boards of the lake associations.

    In July, the lake associations met and agreed on five core or shared values – they are:

    1.         The Environment is our Economy

    2.         No High-Density Residential Developments on our Lakes

    3.         We are One Community of Permanent and Seasonal Residents

    4.         Improved Fiscal Responsibility

    5.         Good and Civil Governance

    The associations also agreed to provide information and guidance to our members regarding the candidates running for office through the following selection process:

    • ·         All of the 13 candidates running for office were interviewed by a committee consisting of Presidents or Directors of five different associations.
    • ·         The candidates were also evaluated based upon their positions on key issues and the answers they provided during the two hour All Candidates Meeting sponsored by the lake associations, held on August 30 at the Terry Fox Auditorium .
    • ·         For incumbents candidates running for re-election, the selection process also considered their performance on Council and their voting records over the past four years.

    For your convenience we have listed below the Gravenhurst Aligned Candidates List. We suggest you save it on your computer, print out several copies, and share them with your friends and neighbours. We also encourage you to share this post broadly with your Muskoka community.

    We are fortunate to live in Canada where we get to choose our representatives through open and fair elections.  We are also fortunate to be guaranteed the freedom of association, as well as the freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression by the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms. 

    The lake associations who have undertaken the task of developing the attached Aligned Candidates list take those freedoms seriously.  We trust our members will consider all pertinent information and make an informed vote in October.

    Update to the Small Vessel Regulations that could affect you:


    PaddleCanada's website has a summary of the recent changes to safety requirements for various paddle sports. Including: "Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP) used for navigation fall into the same category as canoes, kayaks, rowboats, rowing shells, and other human powered boats less than 6m and you are required to carry mandatory safety equipment under the Small Vessel Regulations.

    ·    Option 1: WEAR a lifejacket with a whistle (no buoyant heaving line required).

    ·    Option 2: CARRY a lifejacket on board with whistle and a buoyant heaving line.

    ·    Option 3: NONE then could receive a $200 – $500 fine for non-compliance."

    There are several other recent changes to the Small Vessel Regulations. For a full list of safety equipment required in your boat download the Canadian Safe Boating Council's Boat Notes App or check their website.
