Politics can seem pretty remote to young voters, and Ottawa is a long way away.

A new youth council aims to give a voice to concerns of young people in the riding.

Youths who want to lend a voice to their MP are invited to apply for the Cloverdale-Langley City youth council.

The council is for students of all political backgrounds to discuss issues at round table forums hosted by MP John Aldag.http://webpapersadmin.bcnewsgroup.com/portals/uploads/cloverdale/.DIR288/ReporterLogo1996-2016.jpg

Members of the council will share their ideas, opinions and concerns on a selection of topics with each other and their MP, who will be bringing notes from these discussions back to government to help inform decision making.

It’s a Liberal Caucus initiative and all Liberal MPs have been invited to create their own youth councils.

Candidates will serve one-year terms, participating in three to four round table forums to discuss issues.

The Cloverdale-Langley City youth council will also undertake a community project starting in the winter, more details to come.

It’s open to ages 15 to 24. The application deadline is Sept. 30. Email questions to john.aldag.a1@parl.gc.ca
