Canadians headed to the polls yesterday for a federal election and so did Ridley College students. They had an opportunity to vote in a mock election run by the Grade 9 Civics Classes. The classes each represented a political party (Liberal, Conservative, Green and NDP) and campaigned over the past few weeks. Over 300 students voted during the two lunches in the upper school. A number of staff and faculty members supported the vote as well.
The results of the vote:
Conservative Party (Jon Armstrong) 25.4%
Green Party (Luis Lopez) 38.6%
Liberal Party (Elizabeth Gross) 22%
NDP (Michael Singh) 14%
Luis Lopez’s Greens are awarded with the honour of holding the minority government
