Orientation Meeting: How To Talk To Your MP — Thursday, 10 December 2015

Hello Everyone,

Just want to send a reminder about tomorrow night’s orientation on meeting with MPs.

The meeting is at my house, 85 Westmount Road South, (SW corner of Douglas) in Waterloo Map on Thursday, 10 December 2015 at 7:00pm. There is street parking on the north side of Douglas. Please use the rear door, off the driveway, if you like as it is easier than walking around to the front door on Westmount. The meeting will take about an hour.

If you can’t make the meeting, let me know and we can arrange to get the background materials to you.

Thank you for your support and looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Best regards,
Sharon

Canadaland Commons show on Electoral Reform

Canadaland

This week Canadaland Commons had an episode on Electoral Reform. Hosts Andray Domise and Desmond Cole interview two guests, Alex Kruize (former NZ Green Party candidate and PR advocate), and Jim Burnett (current Conservative strategist and PR denier).

I found it interesting and mostly informative, but with some of the usual howlers: Italy, and constitutional reform needed for PR (it’s not). Also, Rastafarianism isn’t really discussed.

The audio file and show notes are at online at Electoral Reform, or How New Zealand Got a Rastafari MP.

I don’t think a text transcription of the show is available (yet).
