Fair Vote Canada to host forum on electoral reform Saturday

Fair Vote Canada is hosting a townhall meeting on electoral reform this Saturday in Langley.

There will be several presentations on Canada’s existing voting system, as well as some of the alternatives, along with a questionnaire designed to discover what voters value and would like to see in a new voting system, organizers say.

There will also be an opportunity for the public to speak.

The list of presenters includes: Cloverdale-Langley City MP John Aldag, who recently hosted a townhall forum at the Cloverdale Recreation Centre on voting reform; Timothy Jones, a Fair Vote volunteer who will comment on the existing First Past the Post system; Craig Henschel on alternatives to the present system; and Dr. Antony Hodgson, who will explain two new systems that might work in the Canadian context.

The event will be live streamed on Periscope. As well, a report on the event will be forwarded to the Electoral Reform Committee.

The forum runs from 2 to 5 p.m. Aug. 27 at the United Church of Langley, 21562 Old Yale Road, Langley.
