The Green Party candidates  for Vancouver South, Granville and Quadra speak about what makes federal leader Elizabeth May’s proposal to lower the voting age from 18 to 16 the right choice.

Usually struggling in past elections, candidates are hopeful about their chances this election cycle, seeing a need from the public for parties differing from traditional federal politics.  The candidates spoke about the need for housing reform, more stringent environmental regulations, and cooperation with other parties in enacting essential legislation.

The election takes place on  Monday, October 21.
