LETTER: Pro Rep will strengthen our democracy

LETTER: Pro Rep will strengthen our democracy

Did you know that democracies that use a proportional system of representation have higher surpluses and lower levels of government debt than First Past the Post governments? How about that Pro Rep democracies have higher voter turnout and elect representatives that better reflect the cultural and gender diversity of their populations?

Don’t get discouraged by the fear-mongering telling you that you aren’t smart enough to understand proportional representation. It’s simple, it’s better, and it’s time we gave it a try.

Please send in your ballot supporting pro-rep today. If we don’t strengthen our democracy, we risk losing it.
