Making every vote count equally (Telephone Townhall)

Cullen hosting virtual townhall on voting reform on September 19

Residents of Skeena-Bulkley Valley may directly dial in to the town hall via toll-free number 1-877-229-8493 and ID code 112621.

From old-fashioned to new-fangled, NDP Democratic Reform critic Nathan Cullen will continue his outreach to constituents on electoral reform with a telephone town hall set for 7pm on September 19th.

“We want to hear as directly as possible from all residents of our huge riding about their best ideas and hopes to improve the now outdated and non-representative system Canadians have used to elect their Members of Parliament for close to 150 years,” Cullen said.

“A telephone town hall allows us to reach out to residents right across the riding, especially those who were unable to travel to the four electoral reform town halls we held in our larger communities last week.”

There is no charge to join next Monday’s telephone town hall.

The telephone townhall is for residents of the federal Skeena-Bulkley Valley riding only.

All riding residential and cellular telephone numbers in Elections Canada databases will be computer-dialed on Sept. 19. Persons wishing to join follow the prompts and may remain on the line for as little or long as they wish. Participants may ask questions as well as respond to polling questions during the event.

Residents of Skeena-Bulkley Valley may directly dial in to the town hall via toll-free number 1-877-229-8493 and ID code 112621. 

Cullen will be joined on the Sept 19 call by guest Katelynn Northam, an electoral reform campaigner with Leadnow, an independent advocacy organization that brings generations of Canadians together to achieve progress through democracy. Northam recently wrote a Master’s thesis examining the challenge of youth engagement in local government.
