Tweet A Question #ERRE

The Electoral Reform Committee Meetings are to be broadcast on CPAC, which we can watch online at http://www.cpac.ca/en/ or on your local cable tv broadcast [find your CPAC channel here]

Every time the Electoral Reform Committee meets they are inviting the public to submit questions on Twitter at #ERRE #Q.
One way we can participate in the process is to tweet questions or comments during the committee meetings.

WRGREENS ACTION PORTAL

And it doesn’t stop there.  The first WRGreens Action Campaign is the Push for Proportional Representation.  Help us work more effectively together to convince our Members of Parliament of the importance of Proportional Representation.

Since meaningful electoral reform is not a partisan issue, but one of fairness for voters, this information is important for all Canadians, no matter which way their politics lean, so I’ve un-branded this video to make it more universally sharable.
