Preview a film and take part in a forum on electoral fraud in Canada.

Peter Smoczynski, award-winning journalist, CBC producer and documentary filmmaker, will be in Victoria to preview his new film Election Day in Canada: When Voter Suppression Comes Calling.

Civil Liberties Association, former journalist and PR consultant Andrew McLeod, and federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May will join via Twitter.

The discussion takes place Jan. 28.
