September XVIIIth, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen., B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
As we journey off to the land of Anne of Green Gables, we meet up with newly elected Premier Wade Maclauchlan of Prince Edward Island. Wade likes the idea of democratic renewal & reform as his province has high voter participation rates, while we in Alberta & other jurisdictions lag far behind. As far as Wade is concerned, getting Islanders involved in student voting will give them the desire to vote all their lives & pass it onto their kids. With the federal election on, we must not give up trying to engage youth & young adults to participate. As many Albertans thought your predecessors in power has been in power for way too long. As a result of this, the hunger for democratic renewal & improvements is powerful across The Dominion Of Canada!
"Electoral reform affects every Islander, & government is committed to gaining the broadest possible input on these important questions."
