How old should one be before they can vote in a federal or provincial election? This question arises from time to time. Our MP, Nathan Cullen, was part of a group of MPs who investigated this issue a few years ago. Read this article, which provides some background and gives several pros and cons, then comment on this issue. Do you think the voting age should be lowered? Why or why not? Why are many teenagers so apathetic (don’t really care one way or the other) about politics? Comment on at least one person’s reply this week.
