This site is dedicated to centralizing news reports from Canada’s five major political parties, including the Conservative, Liberal, Green, NDP and the Bloc Québécois parties in hopes of informing young Canadian voters so they can get involved in this year’s Federal Election. It is designed to help voters understand the political environment of Canada and make an informed decision when they take to the ballots on May 2, 2011 for the Federal Election.
Why did we create the site?
Canada has been experiencing a decreasing pattern of low voter turnout since the late 50s, especially among young voters age 18-30. This site was created in hopes of inspiring young voters to address this issue and become more involved in the democratic process of elections in Canada. Our hope is that by reaching out to these young voters through the means they already use to communicate—mainly social media and online content—they will be better informed and more willing to participate, than if reached out through more traditional means.
