Is there a complete disconnect between, the importance of elections the way the Canadian media, and general population view them.

I don't want to turn this into who we should vote for, however I am sure, LX, CG, Cotrane, Mike T.O and myself will blow this board up a little later about it.

(On that note, Mike I would like to have a "defeat the socialists in our forum" meeting next Tuesday)

My Questions is why in Canada, especially, the 18-28 age groups does no-one seem to care??
In my case, there never seems to be any choice, only vote for a party, never really an individual.

If we had a say in who runs for each party then I would tend to vote more often.
