Iden­tify your­self as a per­son who is un­able to at­tend the con­sul­ta­tion in AB but would like your voice heard, and ask that your feedback be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion in their re­port. 30% of the vote should equal 30% of the seats.

“The case for Pro­por­tional Rep­re­sen­ta­tion (PR) is fun­da­men­tally the same as that for rep­re­sen­ta­tive democ­racy. Only if an assem­bly rep­re­sents the full di­ver­sity of opin­ion within a na­tion can its deci- sions be re­garded as the de­ci­sions of the na­tional it­self.” En­cy­clo­pe­dia Bri­tan­nica.

“The cur­rent “first-past-the­p­ost” sys­tem is un­demo­cratic. On that ground alone, it needs to be re­placed.” The Econ­o­mist (1991 Editorial).
