The Young Liberals of Canada continue to lobby for their amendment to One Member One Vote at the upcoming Leadership and Policy Convention on April 30. Their membership demands a 25% reserve quota be allotted to youth in every riding in Canada. In other words, all those voting for leadership over the age of 25 will get only 0.75 of their casted vote counted. Kind of defeats the concept of One Member One Vote.
Currently youth members represent somewhere around 10% of the total membership of the Liberal Party of Canada.
Anywho, I think it's only fair that the other 90% of the Liberal Party of Canada get at least a 25% - 50% vote on the Youth elections. After all, the youth have a seat at the table on all the national commissions and the National Executive. Shouldn't the 90% of the Liberal Party have some kind say on who those youth representatives are?
