Seriously it really grinds my gears that the Canadian government thinks that 16 years olds are mature and intelligent enough to drive a car, work a full-time job, pay taxes, apply for a passport, and are able to live independently on their own without a parent or guardian if they want to and get married with parent consent.

But when it comes to voting the Canadian thinks 16 year olds are not mature and intelligent enough to vote. Its completely ridiculous in my opinion.

    Wow that’s great I’m so happy that 16-year-olds will be able to legally be allowed to vote for the first time in Europe.

      This reads like sarcasm. I think that if it turns out successful, it might set a precedent for other countries to follow.
