Ranked Ballot System Works

In 2018, London made history as the first community in Canada to adopt a ranked ballot system for the 2018 Civic Election. Now, in 2020, the Premier of Ontario is making moves to remove this option for communities. Having a ranked ballot ensures that voters’ choices count! This has been a big step forward for Canada as there is substantive evidence that First Past the Post is not the most equitable way for a community to choose their leadership.

Ranked ballot system is also one of the determining reasons as to why I ran. It was a more appropriate and approachable system. It pushed my opponents and I to focus on what we were proposing to our voters rather than focusing on attacking each other.

This recent announcement of taking away ranked ballot system very concerning, and I hope you communicate your thoughts on the matter with me.
