Coordinator: Tyler Sommers

Tyler Sommers, MPM, has worked as a researcher and community organizer focusing his efforts on understanding the motivations for political involvement and assisting Canadians in becoming active and effective community participants.
He is a founder of the Canadian Youth Assembly, an organization seeking to educate youth about community participation, to encourage community participation, and to strengthen the bonds between youth and community leaders.
He has been involved with several University of Toronto research projects covering democratic reform and motivations of political engagement and activity. Tyler recently took part in Carleton University's graduate program in Political Management, the only of its kind in Canada, making him one of the first graduates of this program.
As Coordinator of Democracy Watch and Assistant Coordinator of the Democracy Education Network he hopes to continue the success of both organizations and further the involvement of Canadians through outreach and information. Tyler believes that his passion for democratic and community involvement will serve the organizations as he strives to develop the reach and networks of both organizations.

Parliamentary Budget Officer needs enforcement powers | Democracy Watch [cached]

Set out below is a op-ed by Democracy Watch Coordinator Tyler Sommers which was published in the The Epoch Times (English Edition) June 21, 2012

The ongoing refusal by federal government institutions to provide the Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) with information he clearly has a legal right to examine, and needs, to do his analysis of spending makes it clear that the PBO must be given the power to penalize anyone who refuses his legal requests, and to subpoena information through a quick application in court.
