DATE & TIME
9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Former Chief Electoral Officer of Canada
As Chief Electoral Officer of Canada for nearly 20 years, Jean-Pierre Kingsley has accumulated a wealth of experience and accomplished a great deal. Drawing on this experience, Mr. Kingsley will take participants through an exploration of the state of Canada’s electoral system, propositions for change to that system, and ways in which our democracy is impacted negatively by inaccurate information.
More specifically, Mr. Kingsley will use a hands-on approach to engage participants and discuss what Canada’s key priorities should be moving into 2019 and how electoral changes can impact fairness and representation in our democracy. He will explore the Liberal party’s 2015 campaign promises with regard to the electoral system as well as the important impact that false news, originating both at home and abroad, can have on Canadian politics and Canadian electoral campaigns.
If you think that Canadian democracy and elections require some adjusting or that our system is in danger of corruption by outside forces, you won’t want to miss this workshop.
