PR is important to me because I want fairness in our democracy. I was very upset when I began to understand false majorities – how a candidate could get only 25 to 35% of all the votes cast across Canada and yet end up winning an election and having majority power in government with the First Past the Post voting system. I am also upset by the waste of taxpayer dollars when we have policy lurch after elections. I would like to see more minority governments when parties have to co-operate more in making decisions.
