COUNT YOURSELF IN: Elections In Canada
SKU : DVD-450
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.

This film is aimed at educating students before they reach voting age to motivate them to become interested, involved and informed voters. PPR is available for those institutions who require it. PPR is not needed for classroom or instructional use.
