Green Party candidate Steve Dyck will be hosting an open meet-and-greet event on Wednesday at the University of Guelph focused on the topic of democratic reform.
It will run from 11 a.m. to 12 pm. in the university’s open concept Science Atrium. Democratic reform was a move part of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s 2015 election platform, however, it was cancelled for this term.
The Green and New Democratic parties have criticized the Trudeau administration for not following though, considering it essential to install direct proportional representation instead of first-past-the-post.
Dyck was chosen as the local party’s candidate in what some believe will be a competitive local election.
He will go up against incumbent Liberal MP Lloyd Longfield, People’s Party of Canada candidate Mark Paralovos and candidates to still be chosen from the New Democrats and Conservatives.
