2011 By-election

During the election of 2008 the South End Community Association ventured into the political foray by creating a blog SOUTH END VOTES.  The blog was set up to promote awareness and participation by south end residents in the election, questions were asked of candidates and their answers were published.  Over the period of the election well over 4000 hits were made to the blog.

In a reprise of the South End Community Association’s SOUTH END VOTES of 2008 we want your help in asking questions of the candidates in the by-election to elect one city councilor to replace the seat held by Larry McNabb who passed away December 24th 2010.

  • Please submit, by March 9th one question regarding the South End, which you would like answered by all of the candidates.
  • You can post below by clicking on this headline.
  • Or if you prefer, e-mail us directly at our address:  southendcommunityassociation@

Political junkies Gord Fuller & Pat Portsmouth as well as intrepid blog maven Barbara Densmore will choose 3 or 4 of the very best which will be sent to all candidates.   Answers, or non-answers, to each question will be posted on the South End Votes blog.

If you’re curious about the candidates but unsure of their platform, this should help you make an informed decision.

Show your willingness to participate in this by-election by getting out and voting.  Show Nanaimo (and your neighbourhood) you care.
