Voter apathy blights Canadian politics

People fearful that upcoming federal polls will result in minority government yet again.

    Canadian politics has been marred by instability in recent years. In fact, this is the fourth time Canadians are voting in seven years for a new prime minister.

    But with voter turnout shrinking with every election, the possibility of a stable government looks dim. As a result there are fears the upcoming federal polls may throw up a minority government yet again.
