Letter: Please check out our rant, Mr. Mercer

An open letter to Rick Mercer: have a look at our Voter Challenge Rant!

An open letter to Rick Mercer:

We invite you to have a look at our Voter Challenge Rant:  youtube.com/watch?v=B4RRILMItiQ&feature=youtu.be.

This is a summons to you to come and bless the winning community of the Community Voters Challenge (including the City of Grand Forks) with your presence with a celebratory rant after the federal 2015 Canadian election.

The objective of the challenge is to become the municipality which sees the greatest increase in voter turnout (measured by percentage) since the last federal election. Eleven municipal governments within the Kootenay-Columbia and South Okanagan-West Kootenay ridings have voted to partake in the challenge already. Having you visit the winning community would be the cherry on top—and with a little luck it will catch on across the country!

Thank you for your consideration—and let us know what you think of the impersonation!

– Kiara Lynch and Mike Chapman, Nelson, B.C. on behalf of the Community Voters Challenge
