MPP Wants Ontario Voting Age Lowered To 16

A Liberal M-P-P from the Toronto-area is proposing that Ontario lower its voting age from to 18 to 16. Arthur Potts says if 16-year-olds can be trusted to drive cars, coach soccer and pay income tax, they should be trusted to vote.

Potts, who represents the riding of Beaches-East York, has tabled a private member’s bill on the measure. He says the idea was raised by the Young Liberals wing of the party in January. (The Canadian Press)
