MTV Canada's 'Impact: Elect This' Gets Young Voters Talking by Keeping Some Quiet

by Jacqueline Delange, posted Apr 25th 2011 10:00AM
When campaign ads flash on TV or party leaders appear in televised debates, many young Canadians tune out.

Often forgotten during election time and unable to address politicians directly, they feel invisible.

What young voters need is a spectacle so they can speak and be heard.

MTV Canada's 'Impact: Elect This' offers just that: a forum that gives politically aware young adults a stage on which to voice their opinions about the upcoming federal election to politicians and other Canadians.

About 100 students and young voters gathered at the MTV studios in Toronto for a filmed discussion on issues affecting Canada's youth, such as tuition costs, the environment, health care, the economy and women's rights. The special will air on April 25 at 9PM; MTV is also sending a DVD of the show to each party leader.

'The Hills' is alive... but not for much longer.

The cultural phenomenon that sparked a generation of non-reality reality shows is launching its sixth and final season starting on April 27, with a spectacular summer series finale planned. Many are rejoicing the demise of the show, practically chomping at the bit to send Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt into the sunset. Others aren't so happy... though we're not sure who you are.

Some of the final episodes include Montag's plastic surgery being revealed to her mom, the cast dealing with substance abuse, and Audrina Patridge dating Ashlee Simpson's reality TV ex, Ryan Cabrera. There has been some teasing in regards to the return of Lauren Conrad, but MTV makes no promises.

We sat down to talk candidly with Dan & Jessi from MTV Canada's 'The After Show' about the end of 'The Hills,' and what the remaining fans have to look forward to in the next few months.

Seven sketch comedies that deserved more chances than Mad TV got - VIDEOS

Mad TV came along at a time in American television history when America had an excuse to get out of the house and live healthy and productive lives on Saturday night.

But eventually, the show evolved into a 60-minute scream fest of recurring characters spouting catchphrases over and over and celebrity satire that taught lessons about the proliferation of pop culture and ignorance. Important lessons, such as "Boy is Anna Nicole Smith dumb and fat!" and "Hey, is that Paris Hilton a whore or what?" Every episode felt like a hand was reaching out of the TV and rubbing a cheese grater across my face. Now 14 years after its inception, Fox has finally decided to pull the plug on Mad TV and let it die a slow horrible death instead of taking it out Old Yeller-style, the way God intended.
