Between October 22 and November 30, 2018, British Columbia voters will be voting in a referendum on proportional representation and Fair Vote Canada continues to work to fight for fair voting federally and provincially. Get involved in the BC campaign here
As we struggle with the disastrous results of first past the post voting in the most recent Ontario election, and in elections across Canada, many of us see proportional representation as important. Now we have an outlets to use our creativity to talk about why proportional representation matters. Fair Vote Canada has launched a video and a photo contest so you can share your memes and short videos about why people should care about voting systems. Some of the photo submissions are great and there is a cash award for the video contest.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
