THIS IS A GROUP ASSIGNMENT WE HAVE FINISHED MOST BUT WHAT I WILL NEED YOU TO DO IS FINISH MY PORTION OF THE ESSAY IN WHICH YOU WILL BE PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING;
FAIRNESS OF REPRESENTATION
STRONGER VOTER PARTICIPATION
WE HAVE DECIDED TO USE AN ALTERNATIVE VOTE SYSTEM (AV)
A proposal for a new electoral system for Canada
This group project will develop the details and arguments for a new electoral system for Canada.
You should focus on changing the electoral system only while maintaining the current arrangements for other institutions such as the parliamentary system. Groups of no more than 5 students will discuss and devise a new electoral system for Canada, present its details and the arguments for its adoption. There is a great deal of information on electoral systems available on the internet and in the library. Citizen Assemblies on electoral reform recently held in British Columbia and Ontario, similar commissions in other countries and Fairvote Canada, an interest group for electoral reform, have all produced research and ideas on the subject and there is a massive amount of research material to help you complete the project. It is an ambitious project, but it is also feasible, as citizen assemblies have recently shown.
The assignment has two components:
The final 10 page paper, from which the in-class presentation can be abstracted, should present the proposed electoral system, explain how it meets the 8 criteria set out in the Ontario Select Committee on Electoral Reform, describe how it will affect the behavior and internal structures of parties, present arguments for why the new system is an improvement and discuss what aspects of the new system will be most contentious.
The connection between an elected representative and the people she represents can differ from one to another electoral system. Our current first past the post system, properly referred to as a single member plurality system, has one member per district. Other systems have multi-member districts that fundamentally alter the relationship between a voter and their representative or representatives. It is important to think about the relationship between the representative and the represented when you design your new system.

The Ontario Select Committee on Electoral Reform identified 8 criteria for a new electoral system for Ontario and you must use the same criteria when addressing your proposed electoral system. You can read about the criteria in the Report (pp. 13-18) but they included:
