iVote: Leaders talk about making democracy matter to youth voters

Three federal party leaders and a reform-minded Conservative MP are meeting with 500 students at the University of Ottawa Tuesday afternoon to talk about how to get more youth engaged in politics and democracy.

It's a session they're calling iVote.

New Democrat Leader Tom Mulcair, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May are joining Conservative MP Michael Chong, an MP who's made parliamentary reform a focus of his work, at the university.

The session is being hosted by former parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page and features new research by pollster Nik Nanos. Linda Godin, host of TFO's 360, and Steve Paikin, host of TVO's The Agenda, will moderate.
