Posting a new issue page is a simple three step process.

  1. In the first step, you will be able to select the type of issue (Federal, Provincial/State, or Municipal). Depending on the type of issue that you have selected, you will be given a list of different ridings/electoral districts to choose from.

    In most cases, if you are an individual with a particular issue that is important to you, you'll want to choose the riding/electoral district that you currently reside in. This will allow you to maximum pressure on your local political representative.

    If you are part of a political group, citizens' movement, or you are a grassroots, activist-campaigner then you may want to target more than just a single riding/electoral district. When you get to the list of ridings, simply hold your control key down and then click on each riding that you want added to the list of ridings that your issue page will be posted under.

  2. In the second step, you'll be able use your credit card to pre-pay for you posting. In most cases, the total fee will be $5 (plus applicable taxes) because you'll be posting your issue page to 1 specific riding/electoral district. If you choose to post you issue page under multiple ridings/electoral districts then you will page $5 for each riding/district that you want the issue page to appear under.

  3. The last step occurs once your payment has been processed. You will be emailed a link that will allow you to create, edit and activate your issue page. In this step, you'll enter a one line heading for the issue page. For best results, we suggest that the heading be in the form of an argument that can be answered with a 'Yes' or a 'No'. For example, "The City of Toronto Should Replace its Streetcars with Buses and/or Subways" - that's the type proposition that most people will either agree with or disagree with, based on the heading alone.

    When you type out your issue argument, (i.e. the body of the issue page) you'll want to keep it short and to the point. Ideally, each line in the body will lend support to your issue heading (either through specific facts or well-reasoned arguments).
