LETTER: Single-transferable vote like ordering pizza

Reader Andre Piver wants us to try "true people power."

Canadians need to try the single transferable vote, which 200 random citizens in BC chose after a full unbiased education on the options provided by a university, self-directed as a group over many months.

Try ordering pizza with eight other friends. It’s amazing how well it works. Everyone got at least one fav. It is hard to get how the process works via a verbal description but trying it leaves no doubt how every vote counts. If your first choice is already picked or out of the running, your second and third choices are transferred and still count. Furthermore it takes away the parties’ central control over who votes are transferred to. True people power. The only downside is larger constituency areas, however this is easily taken care of by having several constituency offices which could be shared. Please help educate the public and investigate these findings.

Andre C. Piver, Procter
