Historically many aboriginals in Canada do not vote in Federal elections, they consider them to be a farce, and to make no difference. I'm not sure if they wanted to #heavesteve that badly, or even if the presence of Ashley Callingbull, as Mrs Universe made a difference, but the first nations came out to vote in numbers. Several polling stations in the far north ran out of ballots. Tons of people not on the roster came to register to vote. Apparently 20% more first nations people came to vote than before. Also 10 Natives got voted it, the most ever. Congrats to everyone who got in!
This is absolutely awesome. I'm glad they helped get rid of Harper. shudder.
