Guest Speaker: Professor Michael Keefer

Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, Room 3 (on the 2nd floor)

Join us for our February chapter meeting. All welcome!

Revelations of widespread fraud and voter suppression around the 2011 federal election are a harsh reminder that as Canadians we cannot take our democracy for granted. Professor Michael Keefer, School of English and Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph discusses the May 2011 federal electoral fraud and the robocall issue. Currently eight Canadians are awaiting decision on their legal cases under the provisions of the Canada Elections act at the Supreme Court of Canada. The Council of Canadians has set up the Democracy 24-7 Legal Fund to pay the legal fees and associated costs of the applicants.

The documentary “Hacking Democracy” will be screened.
