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 email@example.com 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.
