U of W students rally in vote mob

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 27/4/2011 (2305 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

A horde of university students stormed down the escalators at the University of Winnipeg at noon in a spontaneous show of encouraging young people to vote in Monday’s federal election.

 And then they went back up the escalators and did it all over again, again with spontaneity, and then showed the same enthusiastic spontaneity bursting out of the front doors of Wesley Hall.

 It’s called a vote mob, being enacted on campuses across Canada. Organizers acknowledged that the staged events today were to provide material for a YouTube video they’ll post on-line by the end of the week.
