Wellington-Halton Hills MP Michael Chong will be in Guelph on Sunday April 6 to talk about The Reform Act in a town hall meeting that will also look at proportional representation.
The Reform Act is Chong’s private member’s bill, which proposes restoring local control over party nominations, strengthening caucus as a decision-making body, and reinforcing accountability of party members to caucuses, a news release said.
Chong will be joined at the 2 to 4 p.m. town hall meeting by electoral reform expert and Fair Vote Canada-Waterloo Region board member Brian Tanguay.
Tanguay will speak about proportional representation, an electoral system in which the percentage of seats a party receives in the legislature roughly matches its popular support, the release said.
The event takes place at St. James the Apostle church, 85 Glasgow St. N., and a reception and light refreshments will follow the presentations.
The event, which takes place at is sponsored by the local chapter of the Council of Canadians, Fair Vote Canada-Waterloo Region and the Social Justice Committee at St. James. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
