HAT Monthly Speaker Meeting

Location: OISE, 252 Bloor St. west, Room 4-414

Speaker: Joyce Hall, Co-chair Fair Vote Toronto Action Team

Topic: Fair Vote Canada and Proportional Representation: It’s Time for Change


Fair Vote Toronto is the official Toronto-area action team of Fair Vote Canada, the national organization calling for the replacement of the current first-past-the-post voting system with a fair and proportional system that provides equal votes for all, fair election outcomes and legitimate majority rule. The questions Joyce will address include: What is proportional representation (PR)? How does it work? Does it benefit women and minorities? What is wrong with the candidate with the most votes winning? In an election, doesn’t someone have to lose? Won’t PR result in chaos and instability? Join us for a lively and informative presentation, and bring your own questions!
