With election day finally arriving, along with it comes those over-eager jitters as we wait for ballots to pile in tonight. This year though, election results will be revealed in real-time, rather than waiting for voting centres to be closed from coast to coast. And instead of sitting with your parents watching the boring old news station awaiting results, VICE will be live-streaming the results in their Daily VICE x Fido Presents: Election Circus 2015.
Hosted by Damian Abraham of Fucked Up, the event mixes up-to-the-minute election results with pieces on weed legalization, missing and murdered Aboriginal women the environment and trans healthcare access. As well, VICE will touch on the lighter side of things with candidate Tinder matching, pumpkin smashing, an election confessional booth, and an apparent “dumpster fire fueled by alcohol”.
The event will have special guests such as journalist Chris Hedges, Toronto based rapper Jazz Cartier, hip-hop producer Kardinal Offishall, and former Toronto city councilor Doug Ford.
