Hamilton Harperman singalong
The Council of Canadians Hamilton chapter worked hard over the past 78 days to get people in their community to 'Go Vote' this federal election - and succeeded in their efforts!
This morning, the Hamilton Spectator reports, "Hamilton's voter turnout increased across the board from 2011, Elections Canada's preliminary figures show. Of eligible voters across the city's five ridings, nearly 67 per cent made it to ballot boxes, compared with about 60 per cent in 2011. The highest turnout was in Hamilton's two new ridings: Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas, 74.06, and Flamborough-Glanbrook, 70.31 per cent."
