Electoral Reform Panel Debate
Few reforms could have more of an effect on every aspect of our lives than this. Education, health care, the environment, taxation, military engagements, and our very survival as a country - all depend fundamentally on who gets elected and how. Considering that Ontario is holding a referendum on this issue this year (and BC in 2009), and there is stalled government legislation in Quebec to switch to proportional representation, this is a very timely discussion on provincial and federal electoral reform. Expert panelists will be booked from both academic and political spheres (panelists TBA):
