Cell Phone Alerts To Provide “Get Out And Vote” Message

Citizen suggests using cell phone and media notifications to get the message out on voting days

Evan Kosiner, recipient of the Sovereign’s Medal For Volunteers, Caring Canadian Award and a House Of Commons Award, is calling on the Right Honourable Justin P.J. Trudeau, the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to use their power regarding the National Alert Aggregation & Dissemination System (NAAD System) to get the message out to Canadians to go out and vote.

Within his letter to the above parties, the suggestion was made, “If due to government bureaucracy it doesn’t fall into the “emergency” category, the innovator in me suggests it perhaps it could be conveniently another test day that happens to mention to “Get out and vote!””

With forthcoming provincial and municipal elections, using this system to get Canadians into the voting booth is a viable means and in the public interest.
