New Brunswick — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came to the New Brunswick legislature Thursday to announce that at the next federal election Canadians 85 or older will no longer be able to cast their vote.
New Brunswick, whose population is getting older and older, is the province likely to see the most change from the new policy.
“The logic is that people past 85 shouldn’t be making decisions that affect the rest of the country, since they won’t be around to feel the consequences,” said Trudeau, beaming from his recent re-election.
“These people generally don’t believe in climate change, green initiatives, basically anything we’re trying to do to save the planet that they won’t be around for. So why are we letting them ruin it for the rest of us?”
The new age limit is supported by all the political parties with the exception of the Conservatives, who rely heavily on old Christian voters.
“How are we supposed to keep the good word of the Lord in schools and government buildings without our heavy base of elderly Christian voters? And for that matter, keep all the other bad religions out?” said Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer.
“This is a plot by two-faced Trudeau to forget about our seniors and large corporations and waste money on Millennials and solar panels,” added Scheer.
Many seniors took to Facebook in an attempt to reach out to the younger generations and explain why young folks should also protest the new age limit.
“Sarah it’s your grandma Ethel. Bruce is in the hospital but he hopes you won’t support the voting age limit. I got chicken for $2.99 at Loblaw’s,” posted Ethel Brewster on a Tim Hortons ad status.
“IS FEELING MAD ABOUT THE AGE CAP THANK YOU TRUDEAU YOU REALLY SHOWED YOUR TRUE COLOURS THIS TIME!” posted Jenny Killam, 86, onto a Facebook buy and sell group.
“It isn’t good, I have a hernia,” commented George Hallihan to his granddaughter’s profile picture.
Another part of the policy is that poll workers can’t be over 50, as many senior poll workers were found to be accidentally messing up ballots and voter names.
Political scientists are predicting that the new policy will have the added benefit of freeing up the wait times to vote, lessening traffic on voting day, and giving your grandparents one more thing to complain about at Christmas.
So not true! It’s made up by a sore loser who didn’t win his bit. Suck it up buttercup and stop slandering our Prime Minister. You must be related to trump.
Betsy!!! It is so sad to see your head is stuffed up your arse. You probably voted for Trudopes papa also. If this crap, and decisions our stupid-ass leader persists in suggesting and implementing, there will not be a Canada left. Democracy just left us. There should be a public outcry across Canada from everyone. The older seniors worked harder than anyone and put their sweat and blood into our country. Their votes “do”count!!! All I’m hearing is a baaah from the silent “sheeple”. The fact we get another 4 years of this ass-hats bad decisions and egotistical rulings are quite hideous.. He should be remembering he got in as a minority. Too bad we are so gutless as not to stand up to him and utter, enough is enough. We want our Canada back….
Great comment Rod, if this is true, I cannot imagine the back lash across this country of ours. This little piece of junk PM, is a Dictator, something a lot of us have known for a long time. If he is looking for push back he is dam well going to get it. It is a shame we cannot impeach this little creep.
All I can say, is P.M.Trudeau defied many election promises on Climate Emergency, Proportional Representation/”Last FPTP election; better foreign policies; less “war waste” etc. “Scheer Terror” at the alternative!
But denying Seniors a vote is ludicrous! Allow 16 y.o. s, who have passed a Civic Course…to vote…to make their Climate Emergency voice count!
I agree 100 %
Seniors Made This Country Great But We Have An Prime Minister Who Thinks He Can Play GOD Making Any Rule That Will Benefit Him. Trudeau
Hates Freedom Trying To Live Not In A Free World But That Of Dictatorship Like Iran & Iraq.
Most Seniors Have Gained More Wisdom Than He Would Ever Know As Trudeau Is A Self Centered Drama Teacher Who Believes In What The Stupid Do Is Called Intelligence & Wisdom. I Do Thank All The Seniors Who Laid Down Their Lives Not Someone Who Puts Himself Above Others Who Proved Their Love For Canada.
Love & Prayer To All Seniors & To The Drama Teacher I Say Open Your Heart Because Your Eyes Are Totally Closed?
Very well written and spelled out. You know what else I noticed in this article, he is yet AGAIN trying to separate the entire country. He is trying to play the young adults off against our 40’s and over. These young people just are not seeing the communism coming. If the Lib loving young adults don’t realize soon what his underlying self serving plan is then look out
Canada WILL be the next Communist Country. How shameful. I dont understand why people can see. He has tried to do howing many dirty nasty lil changes to government without majority governments consent. Where do the people who support him? I the cabbage patch because either they are ignorant to the truth or still wet behind the ears and need education.
I detest Trudeau and his hypocritical sanctimonious smug spine.
But after reading this story I am rolling my eyes.
Rather than publish satirical clickbait to ensnare shrill sanctimonious pro-Trudeauists why not actually dig and be a real journalist and find real “dirt”?
SLANERING ” OUR PM”…..ITS WHAY HES DONE TO THE COUNTRY FOR 4 YEARS BETSY……
go back to school you’re only a kindergarten student and know nothing about politics
You’re a goof look at who published this article. Betsy the loser got triggered by the Manatee
Oh please… you can’t see through rose colored glasses what their agenda is all about? Indoctrinate the young, drop the voting age to 16 and get rid of the wise that have lived through their communist attempts!
And you must be a Liberal who doesn’t read anything except the party line.
Betsy, you are one dumb idiot, have you been living under a rock for the last 4 years, again get your head out of your ass and get your homework done that way you might get out of grade 3
A pile of bs Trudeau….and just who built this country?
Well. I’ll say this. None of the previous commentators here should be voting, that’s for sure. Are any of you familiar with the term satire?
Honestly. Next time before the trumpian style outrage takes root try and engage your brain a little bit.
Honest to god, are the comments on here for real? enabling the idiotic voice of people with rage in their hearts for anything that they don’t agree with is what is sinking civil society, the US just beat us to it. Anyone now how to read? Its a joke people!!
So wrong on all levels! Removing rights from seniors is a big step to having a maximum age limit where they elderly are aborted!
Trudeau if you try this you are pissing off the wrong people and you will be brought down like a ton of bricks!
how is it this pm is still alive hmmm….
But it’s ok for people in jail to decide the future of others by being allowed to vote?
Y’all get that if you click on about page it says right up top that this is a satirical site – and on the disclaimer at the bottom of the about page, right?
Satire = not true. Made up. Not worth getting upset about.
It’s a satirical website, be infromed about what you’re reading before you trip over stupid articles.
Then we should also stop paying taxes then!!!!
Relax, it’s satire and besides one day in a total takeover
of both US and Canada by left wing thugs, NO ONE will be
allowed to live to 80, let alone, 85.
If the real concern is who is affected by what decision, then politicians should be put under the same primary rule as Doctors, to “Do No Harm”. Therefore any politician who votes for, writes up or submits any policy or law that harms anyone in any way, should be barred for life from holding any public office.
some of you need to read this disclaimer: this article is a JOKE its NOT REAL!!! good lord

What about the over-85 people who care about their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren? They should be able to vote, even though they MAY not be around for long. Think of it as part of their heritage. This is blatant discrimination!
I agree with you. It sure appears he is flat out practicing systemic discrimination.
What ever happened to our right to vote at any age, we just had our reverence day that our veterans fought for our freedom, our right to vote in a free country
More fake “news”…I swear it is getting so bad I am beginning to wonder at the intelligence of Canadians. We are getting so used to the lies from down south we are willing to believe every cock and bull story we read without checking to see if it really is true. Wake up people !
While the ‘story’ might be false, it did elicit serious comments and it is those serious comments that ought to be taken as gospel; for in them, lies the truth about the country and the true feelings of Canadians. Satire? Yes but satire does serve a purpose and in this case, a very serious one.
Who is the source of this information? This was dated in 2019 – is this even valid and legitimate information? Nothing was heard or seen about this and it clearly violates our charter.
Puts a whole new spin on the Corona Virus…..
The problem, is if this is satire, that it is indistinguishable from the current reality. With the politically “weaponized” Covid, governments worldwide have given themselves extra-ordinary powers and illegally removed citizens rights and freedoms. This has been accomplished by the fear campaign originating with Big Pharma and aided and abetted by the mainstream media, tireless sycophants of Big Pharma. This is forced communism and Trudeau is a big fanboy. His inner dictator has finally been let out of jail and he is showing his true colours. Hopefully this is one bomb that will explode in his face, but only if we do massive push back. Unmask, close ranks and get outdoors, write your MLAs, resist and take back your freedom or it will be gone for a long, long time..
Well, if this clown of a PM is what he looks like…an offspring of Fidel Castro, then no wonder he has these communist genes in his blood and Canada will sooner or later become part of the communist food-chain! And his surrogate father, Pierre, laid the foundation for a bankrupt country and one devoid of a constitution.
How can any government leader take away ones right. Whatever it may be. Trudeau, it’s time you go and let someone who has the best interest of Canadians first and foremore. You are trying to demolish what our fore fathers fought so hard for.
No poll workers over 50 cause they may mess up………..then there should be no one over 50 in parliament. …..after all…….they may mess up………..citizens of Canada…..regardless of being a senior over 85 is eligible to vote…….it’s their Canadian right…….Trudeau can not dictate who can vote just so he can win an election……
Yes indeed. He is making another huge mistake by not allowing seniors to vote. After all where did he come from but his ancestors who were seniors at one time.
This is a SATIRE site. They take something the could possibly be true and write a story about it and call it humour. Cutting off the voting age for seniors is unfortunately something Trudeau would do…and it wouldn’t be funny.
You’re right last few Weeks the scum has seen how many enemy’s he has.
If he shows his face
Someone might shoot him. There’s no place safe in Canada for that creep. Amen freedom mandate
