Should non-Canadians be allowed to vote in 2014?
Toronto City Hall is investigating whether to allow permanent residents who are not Canadian citizens to vote in municipal elections.
In order to cast a ballot, Toronto residents must have full citizenship.
On Thursday, councillors on Toronto's community development and recreation committee asked city staffers to investigate.
City councillors like Jaye Robinson and Ana Bailao are in favor of giving the vote to non-Canadians. Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong says he's against such a move, adding he believes people must prove Canada is their home before they are allowed to vote.
A staff report is due in May.
If Toronto chooses to allow non-citizens to vote, the Ontario government must sign off on the move.
