The Canadian Movement for Proportional Representation: What we learned in British Columbia and what’s next for Quebec

Join us for a debrief of British Columbia’s referendum and key lessons for the movement for proportional representation in Canada. In this webinar we will identify and examine the BC right’s strategy for a winning No-side campaign, a result not detected by public opinion polling. We will be joined by experts from the frontlines in BC and Quebec, where the long-fought for promise of a fair electoral system is within reach.
