A video made by one Canadian citizen to encourage ALL Canadians to get out and vote in the upcoming elections on May 2nd.
This video also comes with a challenge: if you are Canadian, or simply a world-citizen that cares about democracy - make a video yourself and pass it on!
The voter turn out in Canada in the last election (2008) was the lowest in Canadian history: 59.1%. In a time where people around the world are fighting for a fraction of the rights and freedoms we have here in Canada, that is an appalling number.
C'mon Canada. We can do better than that!
