FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Friday, May 20, 2022

OTTAWA – Today, VoteParty.ca launched its province-wide effort to increase the number of voters, especially young voters, who vote in the Ontario election, following up on its successful efforts that reached millions of voters during the 2015 fall federal election, the 2018 Ontario election, the 2019 federal election, and the 2021 federal election.

The launch includes a Canadian celebrity montage English-language video ad featuring Rick Mercer, Ashley Callingbull (Sports Illustrated swimsuit model 2022 and Mrs. Universe 2015), Elena Juatco (from CTV’s “Jann” and just-released movie “Escape the Field” and upcoming movie “Easter Sunday”), the band MAGIC! (#1 song “Rude”) and Michelle Morgan (from CBC’s “Heartland”).

The ad will be shown before every movie in 65 Cineplex theatres across Ontario from today, Friday, May 20th until Ontario election day Thursday, June 2nd. Cineplex Entertainment has generously donated the cost of showing the video.

VoteParty.ca will also soon release other on its VoteParty.ca website, as will its partner initiative VotePromise.ca. As well, there are many voter education images that can be downloaded for sharing at VoteParty.ca and VotePromise.ca.

VoteParty.ca isn’t urging young voters just to vote, it’s inviting young voters to:
