The Three Minute Citizen includes 11 video animations about government in Canada including its politics, law and history. You will be encouraged to think critically about some important questions around this topic, such as: Why is democracy a good thing? How does democracy work in Canada? Why do we have the system of government we do? How does your vote influence who forms the government? What role do political parties play and how does someone get elected? How can citizens influence the political process from outside the system? These videos explore answers to these questions and more.
