Liberal environmentalists in Canada have launched a campaign to change the voting age to eight, in an effort to fight the ravages of climate change to protect the children.
The #18to8 campaign is asking Canada to lower the voting age to make sure that climate change is on top of the ballot.

The campaign, 18 to 8, uses children as props as they hold professionally-made signs in their promotional video featuring slogans like “Fossil Fuels Are For Dinosaurs,” “Don’t Make Us Turn This Planet Around,” and “Respect Your Youngers.”
“We are a group of Canadian kids who want to tackle climate change in the voting booth. We are the future of this planet and we’re not going to just sit back and watch as it gets destroyed,” the official website reads.
It continues: “While grown-ups are worried about grown-up things like gas prices and political popularity contests, we’re passionate about protecting the natural world – our home – and we’re willing to prioritize a livable climate over all other issues. In the federal election this October 21st, for the love of the planet, let us vote.”
The campaign is advertised in tongue-in-cheek fashion, as organizers claim they use the shocking idea of eight-year-old voting as a way to draw attention to pressing environmental issues.
“Okay, we’re not actually lobbying to give eight-year-olds the vote, but there are some things you can do right now to help us. If you’re not a kid, vote like one,” the website explains.
While they may make a joke out of the concepts, there have been serious proposals to lower the voting age significantly in recent years, as the Left becomes increasingly desperate to maintain their grasp on power.
“Voting when you’re 16 is voting at a time when most Canadians at that age are still in school, at a place that we can actually get to them and engage them,” said Stéphane Perrault, acting chief electoral officer, in 2018.
“We know that Canadians who vote early in their lifetime will continue to vote, and those who don’t vote in the first few elections will tend not to vote later on. So there’s a real benefit to making sure that Canadians vote early, and voting when you’re 16, there’s an opportunity to reach out to them,” he added.

18 to 8 is a project of the David Suzuki Foundation, a Canadian-based nonprofit that calls for Draconian carbon taxes, sustainable development, and other socialist policies under the guise of environmentalism.
The foundation is named after the man who is arguably Canada’s most heralded environmentalist. An old clip from 1972 sheds light into Suzuki’s madness, in which he compared human beings to maggots.
“Most people in the world are content to stay as first or second level maggots, and they establish their own little area and they crawl around there, and that’s fine,” Suzuki explained.
“The guys that become tenth-level maggots are really big wheels,” he added.
These are the types of people who are indoctrinating the youth, not just in Canada but all throughout the West, to accept the dogma of climate change as the impetus to make globalist socialism an inescapable reality.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
