On Saturday, 3 October 2015 the Fair Vote Canada Waterloo Region Chapter held an all-candidates meeting on Electoral Reform at Forest Heights Library. Here’s a 7 minute excerpt from that meeting in which I explain why Canada should adopt Proportional representation!

Fair Vote Canada has assembled a list of Candidates that support Proportional Representation.
At 17 October 2015 the Canadian parties whose policy does not support Proportional Representation include
- Conservative Party of Canada
- Liberal Party of Canada
The three parties actively campaigning on implementing Proportional Representation are:
- The Green Party of Canada
- The NDP (New Democratic Party of Canada)
- The Pirate Party of Canada
As a matter of course, most (if not all) smaller parties support Proportional Representation because it would give them a better chance of achieving representation in Parliament.
