Special Committee of the Legislative Assembly

In the speech from the throne delivered June 3, 2015, government included a commitment to "initiate and support a thorough and comprehensive examination of ways in which to strengthen our electoral system, our representation, and the role and functioning of the Legislative Assembly." As part of this process, government issued a White Paper on Democratic Renewal.

A five person Special Committee of the Legislative Assembly was created to guide public engagement and make recommendations in response to the White Paper on Democratic Renewal. This Special Committee consists of Jordan Brown (Charlottetown-Brighton) (Chair), Dr. Peter Bevan-Baker (Leader of the Third Party), Honourable Paula Biggar (Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy), Janice Sherry (Summerside-Wilmot), and Sidney MacEwen (Morell-Mermaid).

Since it began work studying electoral systems and consulting with Islanders on potential reforms, the Special Committee on Democratic Renewal has presented two reports to the Legislative Assembly. You can read the reports by clicking either of the images below.
