Methods and Tools Used 

This case is an example of a Citizens' Reference Panel, which refers to "a non-compulsory public jury used in Canada to provide policy advice to public and elected officials. They are generally convened by the government or a public agency and typically meet several times over a period of weeks or months to learn about, discuss, and reach agreement (or alignment) on a contentious public issue."[2]
