Web Poll: Will you submit a law to the Create Your Canada contest?

As Nathan Cullen tours with the contest, we ask those in Prince Rupert if they’ll join


For the first time, Nathan Cullen’s contest where constituents suggest a law to be introduced in the House of Commons, will be open to people of all ages.

Started in 2009, Create Your Canada was originally for high school students in Cullen’s B.C. riding. The member of Parliament is currently touring his riding to promote the contest. The winner will be flown to the House of Commons in Ottawa, where it will be introduced as a bill for voting.
