We say we are proud to live in a country like Canada.
We seem to know democracy is to be treasured, and yet voters often decide not to take part in our municipal, provincial and federal elections.
In the Comox municipal election, nearly 60 per cent of eligible voters didn’t bother. And it seems that the trend is toward even less voter participation. Why? What, if anything, should be done?
Come to the Philosophers’ Café as Tony Daigle leads a discussion on apathy in our democracy.
Tell us if you think there is a problem, and if so what should we do about it.
As with each Café, Daigle will have just 10 minutes to introduce the topic, and then the floor is open for 50 minutes of moderated discussion.
The event takes place Wednesday, Jan. 7 from 7-8 p.m. at the Comox Quality Foods Café (in the solarium), 2275 Guthrie Rd.
