Should We Be Alarmed About Empty Voting?

Should we be alarmed about empty voting? According to a recent article, "A Call to Arms on Empty Voting!" by Andrew MacDougall, Robert M. Yalden and Jeremy Fraiberg, yes, we should indeed.  Using a proxy battle over a proposal by Canadian company, TELUS to eliminate its dual class share structure earlier this year  as an example, MacGougall, Yalden, and Fraiberg assert that as "the number of public M&A transactions increases, and if U.S. hedge funds continue to look for opportunities in Canada to engage in strategic gamesmanship, concerns about empty voting will also increase."
