Poll: Should voting be made mandatory in Canada?
Contrarian posted a topic in Federal Politics@Aristides brought a view in another thread. He said: Make voting compulsory like in Australia, it has been shown to reduce polarization and encourage moderation. Polls have shown over 70% of Australians favor keeping it. It is true, that voting is compulsory in Australia, unless if special circumstances. In the event that one does not vote, they gets a 20$ and above fine.

No Vote VS Uneducated Vote
AsksWhy posted a topic in Federal PoliticsPolitics do not interest everyone. Meaning, voter knowledge of today's topics will range from fully informed to totally uninformed. My question is: Does the uninformed vote cause more or less damage than a no vote, and why? Please explain. I am interested to hear the thoughts of the community. Thanks!
Although Conservatives like to drone on like robots about how Stephen Harper is a "steady hand on the wheel" of the economy, that myth is increasingly hard to square with reality. Not only does a recent poll suggest Harper's reputation as a competent manager of the economy has plummeted, a new analysis shows Harper with the worst economic record of any Canadian Prime Minister since the end of the Second World War. Here is how Harper's economic record fares against the others: Annual Average Growth in Employment: 1% - Worst Average Annual Real GDP Growth: 1.6% - Worst Change in Employment Rate: -1.4 pts - Second worst Average Unemployment Rate: 7.1 - Sixth of Nine Labour Force Participation Rate: -1% - Worst Average Annual Growth in Youth Employment: -0.3% - Second worst Index of Job Quality: 87.2 - Worst Average Annual Growth in Real GDP per Capita: 0.4% - Worst Average Annual Growth in Real Business Non-Residential Capital Spending: 2.5% - Second worst Average Annual Growth in Real Exports: 0.3% - Worst Average Annual Growth in Labour Productivity: 0.9% - Second worst Average Annual Growth of Real Personal Income per Capita: 0.9% - Second worst Change in Net Federal Debt as Share of GDP: 0.9% - Sixth of Nine This statistical review confirms that it is far-fetched to suggest that Canada’s economy has been well-managed during the Harper government’s time in office. To the contrary, there is no other time in Canada’s postwar economic history in which Canada’s performance has performed worse than it did under the Harper government.
Should I Vote in the Coming Election for Such a Person? By Exegesisme In Canada, the coming federal election is both for the parties and the leaders of the parties, is both for the legislative branch and for the executive branch, is both for the positions of MPs and the position of PM, is both for the policies of the parties and the morality and ethics of the representatives. As a Canadian, my vote is so functional that I should vote with more discretion, prudence, and scrutiny. However, the so plentiful function of my vote can only be voted to one of the candidates who runs for the seat in the House of Commons which will be assigned to the winner in the constituency in which I live. No matter who is the possible winner, she or he has not much relation to me after the coming election, she or he will vote in the House of Commons on the will of the leader of her or his party, not on the will of me, not on the will of these voters who vote for her or him in the constituency where I live, not on the will of all the voters in the constituency where I live, and even not on the will of herself or himself. Should I vote in the coming election for such a person? As she or he votes in the House of Commons, she or he ignores her or his own will, ignores my will, ignores the will of the voters in the last election who made her or him elected, ignores the will of the voters in the next election she or he will asks for support, ignores her or his own will, and only obey the will of the party leader for fearing punish from the leader, or fearing expected award not from the leader.
