Of course: NDP MP wants dumbass 16 year olds to be able to vote

The voting age should be raised to 40 🙂

An NDP MP believes 16-year-olds should be given the right to vote, not only to increase engagement, but to ensure politicians are accountable to young people.

Don Davies, who represents the British Columbia riding of Vancouver Kingsway, introduced a private member’s bill in the House of Commons Thursday. Bill C-213 would amend the Canada Elections Act to lower the voting age from 18 to 16 — a change he said would “widen the franchise of this country.”
