This past Wednesday Anita attended the "Unpacking our Voting System" event at the First Unitarian Church, hosted by Fair Vote Canada and the Ottawa Action Network. A wonderful skit by the Lakeside Players and speech by Elizabeth May. We need to reform our electoral system to make it more fair. The turn-out tonight shows that many others agree. Let's have more events like this to create more dialogue.
