Election Reform on The Agenda with Steve Paikin live from U of T's Munk Centre Thursday, September 27 at 8 pm on TVO

TORONTO, Sept. 21 /CNW/ - On October 10, citizens of Ontario will be asked to vote for more than a new government. Ontario will also hold its first-ever referendum on electoral reform. The Agenda with Steve Paikin aims to help voters make an informed choice with its first Munk Centre special of the season on Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 8 pm on TVO. Broadcasting live from the University of Toronto's Munk Centre for International Studies, Steve Paikin will lead a discussion on which electoral system Ontario should use to elect members to the provincial legislature: the current First-Past-The-Post system? or the Mixed Member Proportional proposed by the Citizen's Assembly on Electoral Reform? Guest experts from both sides of the debate will be on hand to take questions from the studio audience and from viewers at home.

The program will also be webcast live at tvo.org/theagenda where The Agenda with Steve Paikin's extensive coverage of the election continues online.
