Introduction to Voting Systems: Why do they matter?
Monday, February 22, 6-8 pm

This will be the first in an informal series of weekly talk and discussion sessions under the rubric Democracy Café, sponsored by Canadians against Proroguing Parliament (Toronto Chapter). The series is intended to help members of the group educate themselves on the mechanics of parliamentary process in Canada, and to be prelude to a more formal series of courses for the general public.
All are welcome.
