Our current Federal Government received 100% of the power to run our Country with only 39% of the votes using the ‘First Past the Post’ system.  This system does not offer a fair representation of the Public overall.  The local chapter of Fair Vote Canada held a forum on Electoral Reform in Courtenay, BC to help educate the Public on the different Electoral Systems available to us and their associated benefits.  Experts and local Politicians were brought in to give their viewpoint on this important issue.  With a Federal Election right around the corner, now is a great time to take interest in a subject that will affect your future.
