This summer, as many as 1.4 million Canadians living abroad lost their right to cast ballots in the Oct. 19 federal election.
The reason? They're expats.
More specifically, they are Canadian citizens who have set up new lives outside their home and native land for more than five years.
In a split decision on July 20, the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned a 2014 lower court ruling that undid a so-called "five-year limitation" banning expats from voting.
If you don't live here why hell should we care what you think?
