Why No Referendum?

StabilityElectoral System Roundup
Canadians Deserve Better -Proportional Representation - on Canadian Flag backgroundThis is the eighth in the Whoa!Canada: Proportional Representation Series

I’ve been working on the video of the “Alternative Vote vs. Proportional Representation” debate.  In this bite sized excerpt, Canadian electoral system expert Dennis Pilon explains referendum is not required.

Note: I’ve re-released this very video as “SoundBites: constitutional?”
Two changes were made to the opening credit animation sequence

  • notably the title changed because the clip is really more about the constitutional question.
  • Since Dennis Pilon doesn’t use Twitter, the @DennisPilon credit was misleading

You can see the new version on the Fair Vote Waterloo YouTube Channel here:
