In December, the Broadbent Institute released a report to measure Canadians' attitudes about voting system design and preferences for electoral reform. The study also estimates what the outcome of the 2015 Canadian General Election would have been, had it been run under a ranked ballot system, also known as preferential ballot, as compared to proportional representation and the current system.
The report is enlightening. While 82% of the people in surveyed, in the largest survey of its kind on this issue, say some degree of change is necessary. However the results also outline that work needs to be done to build support for fair elections and proportional representation.
