59.1% voter turnout. Congratulations Canada, you are what makes western liberal democracy what it is today! You sure make the veterans proud!
Like most recent elections (or possibly all – at least the ones I can remember) there was a BIG push among party leaders and other activists to get the ‘youth’ to vote and to fight so-called vote apathy. It would seem that anytime such efforts are made, voter turnout actually decreases. Which leads me to only one conclusion – Electoral reform must consist of creating a citizen/civilian class system in which the youth of the nation are sent into space to fight giant insects in order to earn the privileges of citizenship.
There is no other way.
