Next Prime Minister

October 30, 2007

A friend of mine from high-school is running in the Canada’s Next Prime Minister contest. Here is her contest entry video. I think it’s a great video, although I’m not sure what I think about her idea to lower the voting age. Sure, it would be good to have them still under the captive yoke of the school system when they become eligible to vote, but really… sixteen year olds are, well, kids. She’s right that if they are getting taxed they deserve the right to say what happens to their tax dollars, though. I don’t know.

    This video, although substantially more serious, reminds me of “this hour has 22 minutes”… nice. Although I agree with you on the controversy of 16 year olds voting.
