A Liberal MPP is proposing that Ontario lower its voting age from to 18 to 16.

Arthur Potts says if 16-year-olds can be trusted to drive cars, coach soccer and pay income tax, they should be trusted to vote.

Potts, who represents the Toronto riding of Beaches-East York, has tabled a private member's bill on the measure.

He says the idea was raised by the Young Liberals wing of the party in January.
