Public Record - Visible Minorities in the Electoral Process


The Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP) hosts a panel discussion focusing on the underrepresentation of visible minorities in Canadian election results, Toronto, Ont., January 23, 2007.

Bruce Hicks (associate Canada research chair in electoral studies at the Université de Montréal) addresses issues of representation and voter turnout at the municipal level, particularly in amalgamated regions such as Toronto, Ont. Sujit Choudhry (Scholl Chair at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law) discusses interprovincial and urban underrepresentation in Canada’s electoral system. Michael Pal (University of Toronto Faculty of Law) proposes electoral reforms to reduce the dilution of votes within visible minority groups.

IRPP president Mel Cappe makes opening remarks and moderates. After speeches, panellists field questions from audience members.
