The Legislative Assembly of Alberta Select Special Ethics and Accountability Committee recently announced it is reviewing legislation and asked ‘What do you (we) think?’ about Whistleblowing, Conflicts of Interest, Elections, and Election Financing.
I have prepared and sent a submission to the committee advocating the introduction of proportional representation in time for the next provincial general election (2019). You can download it here. It is a brief outline of where we are now, what some options are, where we could be going, and resources to assist in reaching the right decision.
The big part is asking for Albertans to be involved in designing and developing the system – so it is up to us to ensure we are informed and knowledgeable, so as to help our friends and neighbours make the right decisions when (I assume!) we are asked what we want to see happen.
