SFU Public Square Holds Proportional Representation Debate

This event is sold out but will be webcast on Facebook Live. Be sure to Like SFU Public Square on Facebook to be notified when the broadcast begins.

This fall, British Colombians have the chance to shape the future of provincial elections. A mail-in referendum ballot asks if we should keep the current first past the post system, or reform our electoral process and implement one of three types of proportional representation.

To get engaged and inform your vote, please join SFU Public Square for an evening of discussion about BC’s electoral future. During this Oxford-style debate moderated by Nancy Olewiler, Professor and Director, SFU School of Public Policy, hear from two teams of experts who will argue for and against changes to voting systems in the province, and explain how the results of the referendum affect representation in B.C.

Is it time to change how we vote? Join SFU Public Square on November 15th to listen, learn, and decide from yourself before casting your referendum ballot.
