Emily VanCamp, currently on Brothers and Sisters and formerly on Everwood, says that as a Canadian, she is all too aware of the fact that she won’t be able to vote in the upcoming presidential election. She recently did a college tour for voter registration with other actors of her generation.
“For me it’s about the fact that I can’t vote. I pay taxes here in the U.S. and have now for 6 years but that still doesn’t give me the right to vote here. I don’t take the privilege lightly. Especially now when I don’t have a voice.” Emily said that the environment is the biggest issue for her right now as is the case with many of her peers. “The environment is a huge concern of mine right now. Especially coming from Canada where we grow a lot of our own food. I was raised in Port Perry which is a very sustainable town. I was raised in nature and so I still feel close to it. It’s what I miss most, living here in Los Angeles,” shared Emily.
