Grace Law – Canadians4PR Creator, Chief Blogger and Co-ordinator
Although she was never very interested in politics before, that changed once Trudeau broke his promise on electoral reform. Since then, Grace has been driven by the need to make proportional representation a reality and she expresses that obsession through this blog. It is her mission to educate as many Canadians as she can about the problems with the current voting system and to get them engaged in talking about it. She wants to help Canadians see that Proportional Representation is fast becoming the norm in the democratic world because it works to empower voters, not parties.
In her regular life, Grace is a mother, a high school music teacher who loves her job. She is a supporter of all things social and environmental that make the planet a better place to live for everyone, and is also a volunteer for Fair Vote Canada.
Nigel Rockett – Planning Committee and Social Media Manager
Nigel is interested and engaged with politics because of how broad and impactful policy can be on so many people. He has had the opportunity and privilege to study political science at the University of Toronto, where learning and engaging with proportional representation was a common theme. Being able to learn about a variety of ways in which a voting system interacts with government and politicians made him realize just how important the voting system really is.
For Nigel, supporting PR isn’t just about being left or right politically but knowing the importance of what your vote does and making that vote matter, ultimately holding politicians accountable and having government reflect a country as a whole rather than just a few. He wants this message to carry through in his work with Canadians4PR. He wants Canadians to think about being more than just one person, or one community and realize that there is hope. We can have our voices heard and make meaningful impacts on our lives.
