Hon. Art Eggleton:
Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. The question I have here comes from an Ottawa resident, Maher Jebara. Maher asks the following:
Youth are considered the pillars of society, but too often they are neglected. With participation and voter turnout very low amongst youth, what steps can the government take in engaging youth?
