MPs devoting the summer to electoral reform

City News published a Canadian Press story on the special committee on electoral reform.

Witnesses on the committee, including UBC political science professor emeritus R. Kenneth Carty, said no electoral system is perfect and they come with trade-offs, like less local representation in favour of more proportionality.

“Often, to give up some of one is required if you want to get some of the other,” said Carty.
