London Ontario has just become ground-zero for democratic reform in Canada. While almost every City Council in the province has put self-interest ahead of public interest by quickly (and quietly) rejecting the opportunity of using ranked ballots for the 2018 election, a handful of young and innovative Councillors in London have pushed for a full public consultation to explore the option.
You can be sure that status-quo defenders will be out in force, spreading lies about ranked ballots and trying to scare residents away from change. Let's make sure that advocates get their message out too, telling voters that ranked ballots are easy to use and easy to implement, producing elections that are more fair and more friendly.
Please share this with anyone you know who lives in London. Thanks!!
