COUNT YOURSELF IN: Elections In Canada

COUNT YOURSELF IN: Elections In Canada

This excellent film will be of significant value for your grade 8 to 12 students. The heart of our Parliamentary Democracy is the simple act of casting a ballot. Every election shapes Canada and sets the direction our nation will follow. Yet less than 25 percent of young voters between the ages of 18 to 24 cast a ballot. Even fewer take an active role in the electoral process. This film is aimed at educating students before they reach voting age to motivate them to become interested, involved and informed voters. Students from across Canada, discuss their views and concerns with Elections and their role as young voters in our democracy. Other interviews include a candidate from the Liberal Party, Conservative Party, NDP and Green Party, and two University Professors who discuss the students' views and opinions on such topics as:

  • Does a vote count
  • Do young voters feel disconnected from the electoral process
  • Are politicians dishonest with voters
  • Are there any significant differences between the major political parties
  • Does the media present a reasonable unbiaded view
  • How can students become informed voters and much more
