We’re not against proportional representation for the City of Toronto’s elections. However, it needs a lot of discussion to make sure it would be a step forwards, towards better, more fair elections and improvement in our democracy, not a step backward.
In the meantime, ranked ballots are a small change we can make now that will improve our elections quickly: ranked choice and instant runoff are easy to explain, commonly used, and have broad-based support across the political spectrum. This is a way to improve our elections and political culture right away.
