Youth and new Canadians drove voter turnout surge during 2015 federal election

2016-02-23 Metro Canada

"In an election with the highest turnout in over 20 years, young voters and new immigrants turned out in near-record numbers" writes Metro Canada. Professor Daniel Rubenson, Ryerson University och affilierad to IFN, is quoted saying: “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that turnout was up among young people when both the Liberals and the NDP were looking very strong.” Rubenson believes that “young people tend not to support the Conservative Party.”
