Join a distinguished and diverse panel of policymakers, community representatives, and academics as they discuss the implications of electoral reform for Canadian democracy in action at a U of T Centre for Ethics Public Issues Forum on Friday, Dec. 9, at 3:15pm, in the Vivian & David Campbell Conference Facility, Munk School of Global Affairs, 1 Devonshire Place.
On December 1, the 12-member parliamentary committee on electoral reform will publish its final report. The Special Committee on Electoral Reform is charged with exploring alternatives to Canada’s first-past-the-post voting system, and to examine mandatory voting and online voting. How do the specific issues explored by the committee connect to more basic concerns about fairness, legitimacy, representativeness, constitutionalism, and ethics at all levels of Canadian politics? What ails Canadian democracy? Is electoral reform necessary, or sufficient, to address these concerns? What lessons, if any, does the recent U.S. election hold for Canadian electoral reform?
