Adriana on TV chatting about voting reform

iChannel - Intelligent TelevisionI spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon being filmed on iChannel for an @iSSUE segment about Elections Canada reform.  Gary Dale of Fair Vote Canada was quick to promote the benefits of proportional voting systems, leaving me to speak about party financing, encouraging voter engagement, stemming disenfranchisement, the challenges of electronic voting and the effects of the current system on the Green Party.  The Panel was rounded out by Xing Chiu of Student Vote Canada, who was concerned about student rights and a better voting system in the future.

The show aired 2009 October 5 on iChannel:

“Elections Canada may be exposing voters to ID theft,” said Canada’s Privacy Commissioner because of voter lists that go missing or are circulated widely among political parties. Is it time for a revamp of Elections Canada?
