Lower the voting age in B.C.

Youth have the most at stake in political decisions being made right now. And they have the most to lose.

Threatened by climate change. Forced back into crowded classrooms during a pandemic. Laid off with almost no job prospects. Faced with an uncertain future.

Sixteen and seventeen year olds are impacted every day by government decisions. And just like other citizens, they deserve a say in what lies ahead.

With their whole lives still ahead of them, their future is at greater risk. Climate change is threatening to destroy their communities and shorten their lifespans. Experts are sounding the alarm about a pandemic-driven recession that will affect B.C. for decades to come – directly impacting young people’s education and job prospects.

Youth must have a role in shaping their own future.
