Democracy Week in Canada-- Connecting to Power

It is Democracy Week in Canada. Elections Canada's theme "Connect with Democracy" is "about connecting with people, places and information that help broaden your understanding of why democracy and voting are so important." While connecting is important, First-Past-The-Post (FPTP) is short circuiting us. The winner of FPTP is the one parallel circuit receiving all the power and all other loser circuits are powerless.
The Honourable Craig Scott, Official Opposition Critic for Democratic and Parliamentary Reform, is touring Canada. He writes, "Indeed, the current electoral system does not reflect the will of the popular vote. It has contributed to the needless polarization of our parliamentary and broader politics, to the detriment of our democratic discourse." He would like to hear from you. Scott and Fair Vote Canada invite you to the NDP’s National Electoral Reform Tour Stop in Saskatoon on Tuesday October 1st from 7:00pm–9:00pm at the Frances Morrison Central Library Auditorium (311- 23rd St East). Scott starts in Regina early in the day with details to be announced.
