Democracy Week and the CCP

With the federal election coming up in less that three weeks, U of T is abuzz with civic engagement and action. For those of who went to Hart House’s 5 Buck Lunch on Monday, the endless line of tables from various political groups would have been hard to miss. At the CCP we set up a “Dotmacracy” for students to indicate the federal issue that mattered most to them, and a Ridings Map to ensure that students knew the riding they are meant to vote in.

Yesterday we had a Vote Pop-Up in Sid Smith! Simulating the experience of voting in a federal election, students were able to see what the ballots look like and vote on the every important issue of “What if your favourite way to make friends at U of T?” (results will be released on the CCP’s Facebook next week!).

Don’t worry if you missed it though, there is still time to politicize yourself for the election!
