Electoral reform

This afternoon I received in the mail from the Law Commission of Canada a volume titled, Voting Counts: Electoral Reform for Canada, which is also available online. A perusal of the table of contents indicates that the Commission is asking the right questions about the role of electoral systems in strengthening or weakening democratic governance. It thoroughly investigates the various forms of proportional representation functioning in different political contexts, weighing their respective advantages and disadvantages. The publication of this report is a positive sign from the federal government that it is taking seriously the pressing need for electoral reform in this country.
