Running as a local candidate is an experience like no other, and, even though I lost, I know I’m better for it. Here's a 🧵on my experience as a candidate and why elections need strong local candidates from ALL parties. My thanks to @ipoliticsca for letting me share🙏

OPINION: "Campaigning also takes a huge mental toll, and while we’re quick to talk about the mental ill health of professionals, we’ve been slow to acknowledge it in politicians and candidates," Matt Triemstra writes.

To the 2,010 candidates who ran in this election, thank you. You fought hard, and democracy was better for it. To those who ran and lost, a special thank you, and a reminder to take the time you need to recover so you can come back stronger for #Elxn45 , because Canada needs you.

Canada simply needs more strong, local candidates from all parties. We need people with experience and conviction who are willing to put their name on the ballot. This is how we continue building a better and stronger Canada. To those contemplating running, do it 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️

The reality is that 83 per cent of the candidates who ran in Election 44 lost, regardless of how hard they worked, and in a very public fashion. Yet even though running can sometimes seem futile, our democracy is better served when credible Canadians put their names forward 🇨🇦

Campaigning takes a huge mental toll, and we’ve been slow to acknowledge it in politicians and candidates. I'm grateful to my NDP opponent @DevineSean for being one of the first to reach out to me! We need more of this in politics🤝

Ottawa has declared a “significant weather event” which is being described as a storm that rolls around only once every 10 years. Residents are being asked to go out only if they need to and to expect anywhere from 35 to 40 cm of snow. #ottnews

BREAKING: All Ontario schoolchildren will return to in-classroom learning on schedule next Monday. Premier Doug Ford said last week the Jan. 17 date for schools reopening was the goal. Public health officials have signed off on the decision. #onpoli #COVID19 #onted
