Later this month a private members bill called the 'Higher Education Act'
will be presented before the House of Commons
and it could seriously impact how you vote in the next election. The bill proposes that Canadians with post-secondary degrees should receive multiple votes. To find out more, host Pat Kelly
conducted a round table discussion with Professor Dale Atkinson
from York University
, and Gene Lester
from the advocacy group 'Democracy Today'
We want to know what you think: Should Canadians with university education receive more votes come election time?
