   Lilley:  Until Prime Minister Justin Trudeau passed Bill C-76 through Parliament, a Canadian citizen living in another country could not vote if they had lived outside of Canada for more than five years. There were certain exceptions for people posted overseas, but generally, if you were gone for more than five years, you could no longer vote.
    Trudeau is throwing that out the window and allowing the millions of Canadians living abroad to have a say in how Canada is governed, even if they haven’t lived here in 50 years.
   Someone who left Canada as a young adult, or a child even, and hasn’t lived here in decades will soon have as much say in electing our government as you and I do.
