Media Advisory - Lieutenant Governor to host reception for the members of The Ontario Citizens' Assembly on Electoral Reform
TORONTO, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - The Hon. James K. Bartleman, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, will host a dinner reception for The Ontario Citizens' Assembly on Electoral Reform at the Lieutenant Governor's Suite, Queen's Park, Toronto on Saturday, September 9.
The Assembly is comprised of 103 randomly selected Ontarians and the Chair, George Thomson, who will examine the province's current electoral system to determine if it should be retained or replaced with an alternative system. Based on what the Assembly hears and learns, it will recommend whether Ontario should keep its current electoral system or change to a new one.
This Assembly process gives average citizens a direct voice in determining the options we have when we vote and how our votes are translated into seats for Members of Provincial Parliament (MPPs).
