Rising Consciousness on Need for Electoral Reform
In the Ontario 2022 election several small parties, independent candidates and what are called “third parties” brought their concerns about the need for electoral reform to the fore.
Fair Vote Canada for example, registered as a third party, campaigned door-to-door for a Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform. Its appeal is linked with a federal campaign calling for a national citizens’ assembly. Fair Vote is a strong proponent of proportional representation to end the first-past-the-post method of counting votes.
