Town Hall Meeting on Electoral Reform in Guelph with Stéphane Dion & Brian Tanguay

Hello Fair Voting Friends,

Next week Frank Valeriote, Liberal MP for Guelph is hosting a town hall meeting on electoral reform. The date is Thursday, October 17th @7pm at Hope House, 75 Norfolk Street in Guelph.

It is an excellent opportunity to hear Brian Tanguay & Stéphane Dion speak on the proportional representation. Brian is the poly sci. professor at Laurier who co-authored the Law Commission Report on electoral reform called Voting Counts: Electoral Reform for Canada. Stéphane Dion will speak on his proposal for electoral reform: P3: A Better Voting System for Canada.

The Liberal Party has a policy convention early next year and it is vital to convince the LPC to adopt some degree of PR in their electoral reform policy. This is an excellent opportunity to send a message to the LPC of the degree of interest in establishing a fair voting system for Canada.

Car pooling is available so if you need/want a ride please be in touch & we can set something up.

And, just a quick reminder that FVC -WR is having a chapter planning meeting the evening before on Wed. Oct 16th @ 7pm at Misty Mountain Coffee Cafe, 33 Queen Street South in Kitchener.

Hope to see you soon!

Sharon Sommerville,
Co-Chair
