2015 Federal Election: What If there is a three-way split?

2015 Federal Election: What If there is a three-way split?

We are going to vote on October 19.  It may be a three-way split between Conservatives, NDP and Liberal.

Which party will form the government then?  There is not a simple answer. 

Join us this Thursday September 10, 2015 at 7pm Toronto Metro Hall Rm 308/309 for

a discussion  on coalitions & accords. 

Peter Russell will discuss:

  • What is possible under the Constitution?
  • What is an accord? Coalition?
  • What precedents have we seen in Canada?
  • What is his idea for a possible coalition/accord structure post-election?

Sean Conway and Evelyn Gigantes will discuss:

  • Background on the accord struck between the Liberal and NDP in Ontario 1985.
  • What was the nature of the accord? Who worked it out?
  • What was the advantage or disadvantage of the “junior partner”?
  • Looking back what were the achievements/shortcomings of the accord? Did it achieve good governance for the people of Ontario?
     

There will be questions from the audience.

Canadian Electoral Alliance is a volunteer group. The organization sprang from informal discussions after the last federal election resulted in a Harper Conservative majority with less than 40% of the popular vote. The “60% majority” now sees cherished institutions wrecked, environmental measures long in place eliminated, money spent on prison building (although the crime rate is  falling), among them.

Our members include members of three political parties along with many with no party affiliation. People of any political persuasion are welcome. The goal is basic electoral reform, to make every vote count, to revitalize Canadian democracy.
