Edmonton's Municipal Election has come and gone, with now a new Mayor, six new councillors (although one of whom is Mike Nickel who is a past Councillor from 2004-2007), and six returning councillors. Although it is important to the provincial parties who has been elected, it is almost as important to note 'who' didn't get elected.
Our elected officials need to spend any chance they get talking to our children about the importance of voting and how lucky we are to have the right to vote. Taking even just a few minutes out of one's schedule to speak to a group of students and answer their questions can make a huge impact in the future.
