Should we lower the voting age to 16 or 17?
Three local groups, Democracy Alert, the St. John’s chapter of the Council of Canadians and the Social Justice Cooperative, believe the timing is right to consider a referendum attached to the next election on these two questions.
The evening’s format will include brief presentations on the rationale for changing our electoral system, the precise nature of the referendum questions and the obstacles to overcome. This will be followed by round table discussions across all issues.
Our public forum will take place on May 10th (7 p.m.) at
St. Augustine’s Church
1 Westerland Road
Come join us for coffee and conversation.
