You can’t stop the democracy train…

September 29, 2009

Just a short post to point to you this great article from across the pond on Gordon Brown’s promise to hold a referendum on electoral reform. As the article points out and all of us in BC know full well, a referendum is not necessarily the best way to get change to happen.  On top of that, the system being proposed, Alternative Vote, is one of the weakest choices you could make if you were going to reform.  But it is still about 1000% better than the current First Past The Post system used in Britain which is identical to what we use here in Canada.  More on this later, Canada will almost certainly have an election before this election in Britain so hopefully this will help kickstart the discussion here in the colonies…
