Mar. 6, 2013
Toronto Online

ARCHIVED VIDEO STREAM
This is the archived version of a program presented on March 6, 2013. 

The last few months have seen a flurry of high profile activity in the area of elections law: from administrative irregularities and voter registration in the Supreme Court’s decision in Opitz v. Wrzesnewskyj, to conflict of interest regulation in Magder v Ford, to allegations of unlawful practices and voter suppression in the 'Robocalls cases'.  

View a discussion on what role the courts play in the regulation of elections and elected officials:
• When is a deferential approach reasonable?
• Is the goal of election legislation enfranchisement or preventing disenfranchisement?
• Why are some irregularities tolerable while others are not?

William McDowell, Lenczner Slaght Royce Smith Griffin LLP
Alessandra Nosko, Borden Ladner Gervais LLP
Michael Pal, University of Toronto Faculty of Law and Mowat Centre for Policy Innovation

PROGRAM CHAIR:
Ewa Krajewska, Borden Ladner Gervais LLP
