Over one million eligible young adults did not vote in the last federal election. If a new initiative works, many of the young people who ignored the ballot boxes last time around will be transformed into voters when an election is called. 

The Council of Canadians has recently launched a Get Out the Youth Vote campaign

Approximately 4.8 million Canadians -- that's one in seven -- live in poverty.

This week, Citizens for Public Justice and Canada Without Poverty, two groups that address issues of homelessness, early childhood education and how to organize around anti-poverty activism, released a national action plan to address income insecurity among Canadians. 

"It is never acceptable for a rich country to do nothing about poverty, and now is certainly not the time," said Canada Without Poverty's Executive Director Leilani Farha in a press release.

Gregor Robertson has pulled off a civic hat trick, becoming mayor of Vancouver for the third time.

The centre-left Vision Vancouver candidate’s main opponent, academic and former Vancouver Sun journalist Kirk LaPointe of the right-wing Non-Partisan Association (NPA), conceded defeat at 10:50 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 15.

Robertson led all evening after the polls closed. With all 129 polls reporting, Robertson had taken 83,529 votes to LaPointe’s 73,443 votes.

Meena Wong, the mayoral candidate for the progressive party COPE, came third with 16,791 votes.
