A More Democratic Alberta: How Do We Get There?
Held on May 12, 2006, the JHC hosted a symposium called, A More Democratic Alberta: How Do We Get There? at the University of Alberta. A one day event aimed at exploring and resolving the democratic deficit in Alberta, the event drew together various community-stakeholders in dialogue and discussion to create action-plans addressing various themes related to democratic renewal.
Following the symposium, this editorial written by Renee Vaugeois appeared in the November 14, 2006 edition of Vue Weekly:
“What’s wrong with democracy in Alberta? Where to begin...”
The symposium was a dynamic community project spearheaded in partnership with:
Public Interest Alberta launched the Democracy Task Force as a result, hosting several dialogues to gain a better insight into the view of Albertans.
