WHEN CANADA HAD "EFFECTIVE VOTING"

Drawing on historic newspaper accounts, books and PR organization newsletters, and on recent secondary references, historian Tom Monto has pulled together an overview of the use of proportional representation in Canada.

This chronological history describes the drive for PR starting in the 1880s and its eventual success when by 1923, Single Transferable Voting had been adopted by 19 cities and two provincial governments.

This book presents an overview of STV's use in 17 provincial elections and 150 city elections in Canada. And how despite its effectiveness, it was successively discontinued, with the last Canadian STV government election happening in Calgary in 1971.

With increasing sentiment in favour of electoral reform, this affordable book is bound to provide speaking points and inspiration for today's debates on the subject.

Self-published by Tom Monto, of Edmonton. Monto, a published author, is creator of the electoral reform blogsite Montopedia (wix.site).
