What are the ramifications of partisan drawn districts that favor one party over another? Is there a better and fairer way to do this? What are the alternatives? This presentation, hosted by the League of Women Voters of the Ann Arbor Area, will explore how legislative lines are drawn in Michigan, who draws them and why it is a critically important question for those concerned about fair representation.
David Houle, post-doctorate fellow at the Center for Local, State and Urban Policy (CLOSUP), will present a brief introduction to Canadian politics and an overview of the current 2015 federal election set to unfold on October 19, 2015. The presentation will be followed by an informal discussion.
