Fair Vote Canada, an organization dedicated to voting system reform, has launched a video contest. The intent of the contest is to find new and better ways to communicate both the drawbacks of Canada’s current winner-takes-all voting system and the benefits of proportional representation (PR) voting systems.
We fully support Fair Vote Canada in their endeavours. Electoral reform is an important step on the path towards a better society, and it is one that Canada needs to take. For a quick and interesting introduction to both the problems and the possible solutions, check out Fair Vote Canada’s summary of the electoral reform issue.
