On Parliament Hill, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and NDP MP Taylor Bachrach discuss their party’s proposal to change the voting age to allow 16 and 17-year-olds to vote. Bachrach’s private member’s bill to lower the voting age to 16 will be debated in the House of Commons on Wednesday. They are joined by Jan Eichhorn, an associate professor at the University of Edinburgh whose research focuses on political engagement with a special interest in the participation of young people. The NDP leader also comments on the leak of a draft U.S. Supreme Court ruling that would overturn the 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion.
