Ep. #71: Canada's changing electoral map
Michael Pal joins me to discuss how the riding map is being redrawn — and how the process could be improved.
Every decade, Canada’s electoral map has to be redrawn to account for the country’s growing and moving population. The decisions made by the non-partisan commissions have big implications for our democracy — and the political futures of our MPs.
So how does this process work? And how is it not working as well as it could?
Joining me this week to discuss this is Michael Pal, associate professor in the faculty of law at the University of Ottawa and a recognized expert in this field.
