2012 Trudeau scholar and University of Ottawa assistant professor Michael Pal signs an op-ed in the Globe and Mail. He states that Canada’s top court must weigh in on the new federal government’s wish to move forward with ending the first-past-the-post system. This announcement sparked a national debate about whether a referendum is necessary to legitimize a new electoral system in Canada.
