Discussion Night For the first Discussion Night in 2018 Dave Arthur will be giving an overview of thresholds in proportional election systems: How do we keep the extremists out? What’s the minimum percentage of votes a party should get before they’re granted a seat in parliament? How many votes does it take before a party is no longer considered extreme?

Unhappy Anniversary Party

As well, we’re un-celebrating the anniversary of the official announcement of the Liberals’ broken promise when Prime Minister Trudeau released the mandate letter for the Honourable Karina Gould:

There has been tremendous work by the House of Commons Special Committee on Electoral Reform, outreach by Members of Parliament by all parties, and engagement of 360,000 individuals in Canada through mydemocracy.ca. A clear preference for a new electoral system, let alone a consensus, has not emerged. Furthermore, without a clear preference or a clear question, a referendum would not be in Canada’s interest. Changing the electoral system will not be in your mandate.
