Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen is hosting a town hall on electoral reform in Smithers 7 p.m. Friday at the Old Church.

Public consultation meeting on the future of Canadian democracy are beginning this week in the riding of Skeena-Bulkley Valley.

MP Nathan Cullen, who is on the committee working on changing how votes are counted, is hosting an electoral reform town hall this Friday at 7 p.m. in Smithers’ Old Church.

For those in the Bukley Valley who will not be able to attend, online consultation will be available on Cullen’s website at nathancullen.ca.

There will also be a telephone town hall on Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. Details on that will be announced soon.

Cullen said he is also looking at hosting a town hall in Prince George if its Conservative MPs there do not.
