Consensus for Proportional Representation

On Sunday, September 18, the Comox Valley Council of Canadians hosted an informative 010public dialogue on electoral reform.

Participants, working together in small groups, used a selection of polling questions as the basis of their wide-ranging discussions.

The consensus from the discussion groups was overwhelming in favour of some form of proportional representation(PR) when electing members of parliament. It was deemed essential that all votes be equal. Participants agreed the essence of PR is having the percentage of votes received during the election directly reflected by the number of seats held by a political party.012

A report from the meeting was sent to the Special Committee on Electoral Reform.
