Make your voice heard during these challenging times in Cape Breton and vote Dr John Strasser for Mayor in the upcoming CBRM Fall election October 7th - 17th, 2020.

We need leadership from someone who has been there. Never mind electing the same old same old in Cape Breton. Put your mark beside someone like Dr John Strasser who will create jobs and make our downtown thrive with lots of new jobs, businesses and incentives for people who move here looking for a better way of life, not just to retire.

We are tired of our young people moving to Halifax and other regions of Canada to find work. This is not fair when all we have to do is elect someone who will create jobs to keep our families working locally in Sydney, New Waterford, Glace Bay, North Sydney, and Sydney Mines.

Dr John Strasser has earned numerous awards in Cape Breton and abroad to his credit over the years including his time as President of Sydney Steel and founding board member of ACOA and New Dawn Enterprises.

Who better to lead CBRM that someone with experience, vision, leadership skills, and someone who has been there all along as head of various companies, educational facilities and other governing bodies in Cape Breton and abroad.
