Ep 109: The Great Canadian Club Electoral Reform Debate

Proportional representation: A fairer vote or the path to chaos?

How should British Columbians choose their elected officials? That question is being put to the province this fall as the current first-past-the-post electoral system is put against three variations of proportional representation.

At this panel, moderated by the hosts of the BC politics podcast PolitiCoast, the Hon Suzanne Anton QC speaks in support of the current system and Seth Klein makes the case for why we should change our voting system to proportional representation. 

Thanks to Canadian Club Vancouver for hosting us.
