CitizenSparks #1 Revealed
This week's spark: Show us your Canada! Take a picture of what Canada means to you, post it to social media using the #CitizenSparks tag and your photo could be featured in the paper!
A few months ago, Postmedia, Twitter Canada and Samara got together to ensure that the upcoming federal election reflects the diversity of Canada.
The result is CitizenSparks, a way for you to show what you and your community are doing for democracy during this federal election period—both in and outside mainstream politics. Each week, between June 24th and this fall’s election, we’ll feature a provocation or “Spark” in the pages of Postmedia newspapers and on the Samara website. These Sparks will challenge Canadians to undertake a political action, such as knocking on a door, having a political conversation, convening a group of political citizens in the neighbourhood, hammering in a lawn sign or snapping a photo with a local candidate.
