JOIN US TO DISCUSS ELECTORAL REFORM OPTIONS
Specials Guest : Fair Vote Canada will present alternative voting models

Kanata-Carleton Residents Consulted about Electoral Reform this April
Fortunately electoral reform was part of the Liberal platform and it is equally fortunate that plans are
now underway for the legislation necessary for electoral reform.
MP Karen McCrimmon is preparing to mail out a questionnaire asking our opinion about what kind of
election system that would best suit Canada. Canada Post will deliver the questionnaire to every
household in her riding of Kanata-Carleton.
McCrimmon’s objective is to collect as much feedback as possible from her constituents, prepare a
report, and share it with her caucus colleagues, who might follow her lead, engage their constituents,
and collect some hard data.
You can expect to receive the questionnaire via Canada Post in early April. Please answer it and mail it back.
It will be followed by a Town Hall meeting later in the spring where we will be able to engage directly with McCrimmon on electoral reform.
The Kanata-Carleton Citizens Advocacy Group is planning an event to help inform, educate, and increase public engagement and awareness about electoral reform.
It will be held on April 12, at 7 pm at the Richcraft Recreation Complex, 4101 Innovation Drive, and is organized in partnership with Fair Vote Canada.
The purpose is to provide information about democratic reform, so that our responses to the questionnaire will be more considered, and we will be able to better contribute to
McCrimmon’s Town Hall.
We are living in the first riding in Canada whose MP is actually asking for our opinions on electoral reform.
