Local activists have presented our MP with a petition calling for proportional representation in future federal elections.
Ann Remnant – a Nelson rep with Fair Vote Canada – handed Wayne Stetski the document with 600 signatures so he can give that to the federal Liberals in Ottawa.
Remnant wants each vote to have equal weight.
Stetksi – whose New Democrats also advocate for PR – as the Liberals have – says its important to get the right model.
Fair Vote Canada says the current first past the post system has given the Liberals – like the Conservatives before them – all the power even though they got only 40% of votes cast
