TEDx Stanley Park: Electoral Dysfunction and Reform

On Thursday, April 13th, 2017 in Evénements, Discours

Why does Canada use a voting system that allows the minority of voters to elect a majority government? How does 39% of the vote translate into 100% of the power? How does a voting system that allows a micro-targeted riding-by-riding campaign style lead to negative campaigning, toxic politics and a hyper-partisan, never-ending campaign replacing governance?

Most modern democracies use some form of proportional voting. Canada has a once in a generation chance to improve the quality of our democracy, enhance the power of voters, and ensure that never again will we have a prime minister wielding extraordinary powers, essentially an elected dictatorship, supported by only a minority of voters. It is time for fair voting.
