Dear Canada: Here’s why you should join a political party

Only 271,774 Canadians had a say on who the top two candidates were in this past election.

You can register to join the Liberal, Conservative, or NDP party. Joining the party means you get the opportunity to vote for that party’s leader.

A total of 271,774 people voted in the 2013 Liberal and 2017 Conservative leadership races.

Therefore, the votes of only 271,774 Canadians resulted in Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer being selected as the candidates of the top political parties in our 2019 federal election.

There are more than 27 million Canadians who are eligible to vote. This means we had less than 1.007% of eligible voters choose our top candidates for us.
