March 22, 2013 - There are no current national or provincial elections to study so students at St. Charles College have created a mock election of their own. 
 
The grade ten Civics students in teacher James Suchoplas’ class had to create a political party complete with name and platform and deliver their enticing speeches to the students in the Life Skills classes.
 
The Life Skills students have the job of selecting a mock leader and party to run the school by way of secret ballot.
 
Suchoplas says “The election was an excellent way for students to study issues that impact students and then find ways to strive for change.”
 
Some groups even went so far as to create their own political campaign commercial.
