Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • Making election day a national holiday will increase voter turnout by enabling more people to vote;
  • Making election day a national holiday would turn voting into a celebration of democracy; and
  • Making weekday elections a national holiday is a popular idea that would align Canada with other countries.
We, the undersigned, Residents of Kingston and The Islands, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to make election day a paid holiday when it is on a weekday.
