Here’s the situation: Ontario’s election is days away and you want to vote but can’t decide who to vote for.
Let CBC News help.
Here’s a roundup of some of our election coverage that highlights the differences in the parties — and we’ll even do our best to indicate how long it’ll take to read each piece.
Oh, and if you’ve already cast a ballot at an advance poll or have already done the research on who you’ll vote for on June 2, please consider sharing this story with someone you know who isn’t quite there.
Help! I haven’t followed Ontario politics whatsoever
If you’re starting from ground zero and have about 15 minutes, try Vote Compass.
The civic engagement tool, created by Vox Pop Labs, asks you a series of questions (don’t worry if you can’t answer all of them) and shows you where you stand in relation to the four major parties — the Progressive Conservatives, the New Democratic Party, the Liberals and the Green Party of Ontario.
No, Vote Compass is not telling you who to vote for. If you have more questions about the tool, head here.
I follow politics but I’m having a hard time telling the parties apart
There’s a lot of arguing on the campaign trail. We get it.
This may feel like homework — this is a 15 minute-plus job, if you want to read thoroughly — but the best way to break down how the parties differ is to review their platforms.
You can find all of those platforms (note: the PC platform is largely the budget they tabled at Queen’s Park but did not pass before heading into the campaign) in this story.
