Exciting news! Coalition member group the PR Action Team‘s new website is up and running today. Visit www.PRonPEI.vote to pledge your vote for PR and to find out more about upcoming events to promote proportional representation across Prince Edward Island.
The two presentations on DMP and MMP were recorded. See the videos below! (*Please note that the model for MMP for PEI was later adjusted based on more information from the Special Committee for Democratic Renewal about their recommended distribution of seats. This information wasn’t available on April 6.)
The PEI Coalition for Proportional Representation is very pleased to announce we have joined the Every Voter Counts Alliance – February 25, 2016. Here’s how the Alliance describes its goals:
Canada needs a fair voting system that Makes Every Vote Count!
The Every Voter Counts Alliance brings together organizations and individuals in support of a fair voting system where every vote counts, independent of party interests.
A system that will:
Provide all citizens a real opportunity to elect a candidate according to their values.
Reflect the choice of voters without producing skewed results that do not reflect voter intentions like false majorities and exaggerated regional divisions.
Produce a more diverse, inclusive, and representative parliament.
Respect the federal character of our country and the existing distribution of seats by province.
Increase voter turnout
Evidence shows only a proportional representation can achieve these goals and values.
We call on the federal government to consult with experts and Canadians, then implement a truly fair and democratic system for the 2019 federal election. A way for Canadians to choose a local representative and see their political views represented in Parliament with equal and effective votes for all.
