Ontario, like four other Canadian provinces, will hold a provincial election this fall.
Members of Provincial Parliament (MPPs) and the Premier of the province will be chosen.
Depending on the province and district, other positions will also be elected.
In one of Ontario’s districts, Scarborough-Agincourt, Soo Wong is running for MPP.
TKN asked her what young people can do to feel part of the political process when they’re not yet old enough to vote.
“It is the responsibility of every Canadian to understand what elections are about,” she said. “All of the young people will sooner or later become adults. It’s not just about today, but about moving this province forward.”
She said that young people need to be knowledgeable about the candidates and the issues so that when it is their time to vote, they are prepared.
