What ‘Rock the Vote’ did for Canada

aptn InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:

Voter turnout increased by more than 200% in some First Nation communities in this federal election.

No one knows how many more votes there may have been if some polling stations had not run out of ballots.

In this edition we talk with organizers of the Rock the Vote campaign.  They share their perspective on why so many people came out to vote.

In the 3rd segment we get perspective from a climate change campaigner on the new Liberal majority government.
