Bits and Pieces

The Yes campaign site has incorporated a blog into their site (kind of) - you can't leave comments but it does seem to support rss - kind of neat.

Also from the Yes campaign site, the following events will be taking place over the next week:

Thu, Feb 24th, 2005, @7:30pm- 9:00pm
Vancouver: Redesigning Democracy (ala UBC)

Mon, Feb 28th, 2005, @7:00pm- 9:30pm
Mackenzie: Community forum (Active Voice)

Tue, Mar 1st, 2005, @7:30pm- 9:30pm
Prince George: Community Forum's (Active Voice)

more details available at the site itself

For the Vancouver one on Thursday, the details are:

Redesigning Democracy, STV and How We Elect our MLA's
With: David Wills, Shoni Field and Bill Tieleman
Thurs. Feb. 24th 7:30-9 pm
UBC Robson Square (by the UBC bookstore, entrance near the faux-skating rink below ground near the court buildings)
Admission is free but please pre-register at or by phoning 604-822-5675

Wills and Field were members of the Citizen's Assembly while Tieleman is a columnist with the Georgia Straight who has written a number (4 and counting) of critical columns about STV.

Talk of the Town (a series of speakers at UBC Robson Square) prefers if you pre-register but it's no big deal if you don't so don't let that stop you from going if you're interested (last time I was there they told me the pre-registration was just so that they could estimate how many chairs they needed, but their chair estimate was way off anyway so it seemed extra pointless, but I digress).

And I also wanted to mention that Shannon, over at Shenanigans, explains how STV works in a recent post. Nice work.
