A poll for the Dominion Institute, conducted by Innovative Research Group, shows that political parties have not yet adjusted to the new
online environment that young Canadians increasingly inhabit.
Young Canadians live in a new world where even more (83%) have a
Facebook page than have a cell phone (81%). Furthermore, young Canadians prefer to use the internet (35%) when looking for more information
about the Canadian election, followed by three-in-ten who chose television (30%). Less than one-in-ten (8%) chose friends and family as
their key information source.
