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.
Canadian Health ‘Experts’ Suggest Up to Two Weeks of Mental Torture and Solitary Confinement for Kids Diagnosed with COVID-19
Psychotic levels of tyranny.
Canadian medical “experts” with Peel Health are aggressively backtracking after suggesting for parents to inflict solitary confinement upon children for up to two weeks if they are diagnosed with COVID-19.
The guidelines which have sparked widespread anger have since been removed from the Peel Health page, and state health officials are being forced to backtrack their latest COVID-19 overreach to violate the rights of children.
The initial flier that was given to children in schools can be seen here:
There are some actual medical experts with ethics, decency and common sense who are speaking out against these ghastly policies to inflict mental torture upon children.
“This does not seem practically possible and is highly likely to cause harm to children who would already be experiencing considerable distress with having to remain at home,” Dr. Tess Clifford, who works as director for the Psychology Clinic at Queen’s University, said to the Toronto Sun.
“I don’t understand how any healthcare professional has moved so far away from the fundamentals of public health and of doing no harm that they would think that basically incarcerating a child in a room for 14 days is in any way justified,” said Dr. Martha Fulford, who works as an infectious diseases physician with Hamilton Health Sciences.
“This is shocking, especially when you consider this is being proposed for children who are not in any way sick,” she added.
Brampton, Ont. Mayor Patrick Brown wrote in a tweet on Sunday that the guidelines would be revised after the outcry of anger.
“Public Health must ensure the best interests of children & families are at the centre of recommendations,” Brown wrote. “They must be based on science with evidence for all to see. I am relieved to hear from Dr [Lawrence] Loh that this mistake is being fixed & this flyer is being removed from circulation.”

While Brown is downplaying the guidelines as a mere mistake, parents who have been deceived about the COVID-19 scamdemic for over a year now are no longer buying the spin. They now understand that mealy-mouthed bureaucratic weasels are deliberately punishing the people for the purposes of leftist social control.
Shouldn’t have gone out to begin with! Only being fixed due to the outrage!

This is already happening. They didn't admit a mistake , they just got caught. pic.twitter.com/GTKOzmLp7t

This is absolutely egregious incompetence.
Isolating children? For 2 weeks?
Why do we always tolerate this utter idiocy from government?
Everyone in that decision path needs to be fired.

Mayor Brown, it's appalling that the media had to call them out for 3 consecutive days on this prior to a change being made. This should not have happened and I hope you're looking into it. If media hadn't raised it – it would have stayed in. Unacceptable

This entire Covid situation needs to be "fixed"…the sooner the better. Eventually one law or another will catch up with all the perpetrators and their supporters.

The stakes are too high for mistakes. Where else have they made mistakes? You know how a doctor covers their mistakes? 6ft of dirt.

Even after a year of nonstop fear porn from the mass media and every China-backed corporation going along with the lies, the masses still desire to be free and are rejecting COVID-19 tyranny. This is not good news for the globalists whose cruel policies are becoming violently unpopular among the common people.
