Special Committee on Electoral Reform to Reserve Time for Audience Participation #cdnpoli #electoralreform

The special committee on electoral reform is holding meetings over the summer in order to come up with recommendations for replacing the first-past-the-post electoral system.

The committee will met on the 6, 7th, 25th and 26th of July. It will meet again July 27th, 28th, August 22nd, 23rd, 29th, 30th, 31st and September 1st. The minutes don’t clarify where all those meetings will be held, and the chair of the committee is authorized to make changes as necessary.

The committee has decided there will be an open mic at each meeting with time set aside at each meeting for people to speak “on a first-come first-served basis”.

Canadians can also use the Twitter hashtags #ERRE and #Q to submit questions to the committee.

Finally, the committee is inviting Canadians to submit briefs, up to a maximum of 3,000 words, by October 7th. Canadians have until that date to make requests to appear before the committee.
