Canada Votes by Linda Granfield

Spread the love

Stars: ****

I read this book because although I’m 20, I’ve never really understood how government and voting works here in Canada. I am shamed to admit this but it was partially because I didn’t understand it in school and partially that I didn’t TRY to understand it in school. Nevertheless, this was a very good introduction to voting in Canada. The author is Linda Granfield and the illustrations are by Craig Terlson. The illustrations are hilarious and definitely add character to the book. Topics include The right to vote, who can vote, getting on the voters list, voting map (ridings), parliament, History of voting, the different parties, fraud, and much more. With lots of little facts, this book is an excellent introduction.
