In order to really promote and support democracy people need to have a half day off on voting day during the work week for each level of government: municipal, provincial and federal.

    Totally agree James. To me that fact that people do not have time off work to vote is a clear reflection that the powers that be, the 1%, or whatever we wish to call them are not really interested in democracy or the democratic process and as a result democracy is a mile wide and an inch deep and we all suffer as a result.

    Heck, we already have fixed election dates, why not make voting day a stat holiday altogether? It would be great for raising awareness, and gives people a day practically dedicated to informing themselves so there is less uncertainty leading to non-voting. Great idea.
