Proceedings on "Learning from the Citizens Assembly" Available Online

At a November 21, 2005 public dialogue, Jack Blaney, SFU President Emeritus and Chair of the Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform, discussed the workings of the Assembly and the applicability of this model to future public initiatives. “Nowhere else in the world, ever, have voters themselves designed the voting system,” noted Blaney. He highlighted two major causes for the Assembly’s success: focus and ownership. View the proceedings from this event here: www.sfu.ca/dialogue/Learning_CitizensAssembly_proceedings.pdf
