On March 22, the CIRM invites you to a moment of discussion around the book Voting in Québec Municipal Elections: A tale of two cities (Presses de l’Université de Toronto), co-edited by Éric Bélanger. An event organized in association with the Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship (CSCD) and McGill University’s Quebec Studies Program (QSP). Joignez Éric Bélanger (McGill), along with several speakers and guests for this discussion animated by Nik Luka, Associate Director of CIRM.
Voting in Quebec: A tale of two cities seeks to transform the state of research on municipal elections in Quebec through a systematic study of the 2017 elections in Montreal and Quebec City. Using data from the Canadian Municipal Elections Study, the authors demonstrate not only the importance of municipal politics in Quebec, but also the many ways in which research on municipal elections can help us better understand electoral behaviour in Quebec. This book examines characteristics specific to the local Quebec context, such as the importance of language and nationalism, the effects of local party labels on negative ballot races, and the role of ideology.
This event will take place in hybrid mode.
