NDP chooses leader committed to proportional representation
Will seek mandate for electoral reform in next election
Fair Vote Canada (FVC) congratulates Thomas Mulcair, a proponent of proportional representation, on winning the leadership of the federal New Democratic Party.
“The majority of Canadians (68%) want electoral reform, so we all benefit when a leader is chosen who has made a commitment to bring a fair and proportional voting system to Canada” says Fair Vote Canada president Shoni Field.

Voting under way for FVC National Council elections
Every year, FVC elects five members to a three-year term on our national board of directors, the National Council. There are fifteen directors in all. The election is being conducted by mail and online using the Single Transferable Vote, a proportional voting system.
Nominations are now closed for this year’s election. Eleven candidates have put their name forward for election to the five positions. Their candidate statements can be viewed here: http://www.fairvote.ca/en/candidate-statements-fvc-national-council-elec...
To help you make your decision, we also asked FVC members to submit a few questions for the candidates. Their answers are now available here: http://www.fairvote.ca/NC-2012-candidate-positions
