Discussion Night It’s Hallowe’en, so let’s have a scary Discussion Night. How about proposing another First Past The Post voting system?

But maybe it’s not so scary after all. Larry Kryski has proposed a minor adjustment to our current First Past The Post voting system that results in Proportional Representation for votes taken in Parliament! How? By weighting the vote of each member by the number of votes received.

What are the advantages? What are the drawbacks? You can read Larry Kryski’s paper Creating a Proportional Representation Electoral System That Works.

Join us for an evening of discussion at the Bread and Roses Community Room at 307 Queen Street South, Kitchener Map 1. Everyone is welcome! You don’t have to be a Fair Vote member to come to Discussion Nights.

If you drive, please park in the north parking lot Map 2 and place a note on the dashboard of your vehicle:
