Fair Vote Alberta event with Shoni Field

Fair Vote Alberta, the provincial wing of Fair Vote Canada, will be hosting an event with former B.C. Citizens' Assembly member Shoni Field. Shoni will be talking to us about her experiences on the Assembly and its applicability to Alberta. There will be plenty of time after her talk for Q&A.

Place: Strathcona Public Library (8331-104 Street), Edmonton
Date: Wednesday, March 19th
Time: 7:00 PM

If you're in Edmonton or can get here, please come out and meet Shoni, talk about electoral reform, and support Fair Vote Alberta! (Also, if you like our pretty, pretty new website, be sure to tell Kuri from Thought, Interrupted by Typos how much her design skills rock.)

Shoni is an awesome speaker - she's well worth listening to. I add my voice to IP's to encourage you to go out and listen.

Enjoy! :)

How ackward will it be if the citizens of BC actualy vote to adopt their proposed new system, while at the same time electing a majority BC NDP government who in turn decides to somehow ignore the PR vote's result?

It's not too hard to imagine Premier James saying "The question was worded in an inappropriate manner" or something along those lines...
