National Post Supports Proportional Representation

This is interesting folks – support for Proportional Representation from a most unlikely source! In praise of proportional representation

“Electoral reform is about priorities and preferences. It’s a matter of making sure that our democratic procedures align with our values and political realities. First-past-the-post is an antique system from a time when local ridings actually mattered. But in an age where party policy is determined by leaders, and individual MPs are too frequently told how and when to vote, its main function is to make thousands of votes across Canada meaningless.”
