@FairvoteWRC this week

Hello Everyone,

Just in case you missed Dave Arthur’s excellent letter about PR published in Wednesday’s Record, here is the online link:

On Wednesday afternoon, Bob Jonkman and I gave a presentation to about 40 Laurier students about activism and electoral reform. The students were interested and raised many good questions. Our thanks to Professor Andrea Perrella for the invitation to address his students. We appreciate all opportunities to speak with community groups; if you have connections to community groups that would like a presentation on any aspect of electoral reform, please let us know.


Our monthly meeting is next People with speech bubblesWednesday, 28 November 2018 at 7:00pm in the community room at the Bread & Roses Housing Co-op, 307 Queen Street South (corner of Courtland) in Kitchener. It should be a very interesting evening as Evan Rosamond will present a synopsis of David Van Reybrouck’s Against Elections: The Case for Democracy. Van Reybrouck makes a compelling argument to end elections in favour of selecting legislators as we choose jury members; randomly from the voters list. We are anticipating an engaging discussion!

Hope to see you soon,

Sharon Sommerville
for FVC-WR
