Electoral reform on the agenda at Vancouver roundtable

A UBC roundtable on electoral reform was featured in an article on MSN.

The goal of the daylong panel with members of the federal government is to “kick start” the discussion, since the Liberal government has established a Special Committee on Electoral Reform.

UBC political scientist Max Cameron said the current system needs to be changed.

“It tends to create false majority government,” he said. “We’ve had many governments in Canada that have not had the majority of the popular vote but win a majority of the seats which gives it 100 per cent of the power.”
