Liberals propose mandatory voting

Canada’s Liberal Party is floating an idea of mandatory voting in elections, in response to low voter turnout.

Here’s what happens with mandatory voting:

People who do not follow politics or the news will come into the voting booth and go eenee-menee-minee-moe. And when that happens we get people in public office that have no business being in politics.

Justin Trudeau has impressed me with some of his policies. If they go through with mandatory voting, he loses that respect.

I’m also curious where this story will put him in the polls. Forcing people to vote will just piss people off.

The Liberals will be getting input from rank and file members.  But let’s face it, if the big wigs in the party want this in the platform, it’s gonna be in the platform.
