5
Adam VaughnYES
6
Ahmed HussenYES
7
Ali EhsassiYES
8
Amarjeet SohiYES
Biggest concern expressed was vote does not count. Report was not clear enough to tell if the majority were for PR and no other information to make the call.
9
Andrew LeslieYES
10
Andy FillmoreYES
11
Angelo IaconoYES
12
Anita VandelbeldYES
There were a lot of opponents at this town hall. They organized and were aggressive and many people wrote to me upset at the tone of the meeting. I counted the comments in the report manually and majority for PR.
13
Anju DhillonYES
14
Anthony HousefatherYES
Mr. Housefather is a vocal opponent of PR for a long time. He advertised it publicly the day before on his facebook page so I let people know the evening before. One attendee wrote a report of that town hall with lots of detail: http://www.parl.gc.ca/Content/HOC/Committee/421/ERRE/Brief/BR8544353/br-external/GorchkovAlexandre-e.pdf
15
Arif ViraniYES
16
Arnold ChanYES
17
Bardish ChaggerYES
18
Bernadette JordanYES
19
Bill BlairYES
Lots of concerns expressed with FPTP and false majorites one of the themes but no way to tell how many for what.
20
Bill CaseyYES
Says most people wanted no more MPs and no changes to boundaries. On radio Casey said 39% majorities are a problem, however, also says most people want ranked ballot in single member ridings (which delivers false majorities).
21
Bob NaultYES
People want PR with no change to electoral boundaries
22
Boris WrzenewskyjYES
23
Bruce StantonYES
Confirmed with MP that majority for PR or Mixed PR.
24
Bryan MayYES
25
Carla QualtroughYES
26
Carolyn BennettYES
27
Catherine McKennaYES
28
Celina Caesar-ChavannesYES
29
Chandra AryaYES
30
Chris BittleYES
The MP has put AV and STV together - though they both use a ranked ballot they have an opposite purpose. It was impossible to tell how many supported principle of proportionality in this meeting although opening comments on flaws of FPTP suggest quite a few but perhaps not a majority.
31
Colin FraserYES
Main reason for AV was to keep ridings the same
32
Dan RuimyYES
33
Darrel SamsonYES
Described a long list of systems that are not even on the table, explained STV wrong, then had people vote on them. We have a reliable report that majority were for PR.
34
Darren FisherYES
Impossible to tell if PR majority from the way this report was written, however, we have a reliable report that PR was what the majority supported.
35
Don RusnakYES
36
Doug EyolfsonYES
37
Elizabeth MayYES
38
Eva NassifYES
39
FAYÇAL EL-KHOURYYES
40
Francesco SorbaraYES
41
Francis DrouinYES
MP report does not directly answer the question. Here is what a volunteer wrote: C’était un groupe informé qui considère que nous devrions changer de mode de scrutin. La majorité semble vouloir aller vers une forme de proportionnelle.)
42
Francis ScarpaleggiaYES
43
Frank BaylisYES
44
Gagan SikandYES
45
Garnett GeniusYES
46
Gary AnandasangareeYES
47
Geoff ReganYES
The MP town hall report was not clear. Attendee told us: "Some consistent common threads did emerge from the groups: first, that the current system needed to be reformed, and second, that the biggest single problem was lack of proportionality. Every group mentioned a desire to see election results that were more accurate to the popular party vote."
48
Ginette Petitpas-TaylorYES
49
Greg FergusYES
50
Gudie HutchingsYES
51
Harjit SajjanYES
Described people for FPTP, "ranked balloting", and PR. Since it's BC the ranked balloting could very well have been STV. FVC report from an attendee and he said majority were for PR - emailed him again, he read report, and confirmed he saw majority support for PR.
52
Hedy FryYES
53
Iqra KhalidYES
54
Irene MatthysenYES
55
James MaloneyYES
This MP's report makes it impossible to tell how many supported what. It was clear that "representation of minority votes" - that is PR - was the second principle people identified. An attendee reported to us that the town hall was a "mixed bag" of topics but "Of 14 groups that reported to the large group TWO were happy with FPTP." That is why I've put this down as majority for change.
56
Jati SidhuYES
57
Jennifer O'ConnellYES
Of those who expressed an opinion on systems, 17 PR, 5 AV, 4 opposed to any change
58
Jody Wilson-RaybouldYES
59
Joe PeschisolidoYES
60
Joel LightboundYES
People supported proportional and preferential but the specific preferential they were responding to at his meeting was STV proposed by the guest speaker. No evidence of support for majoritarian.
61
John MacKayYES
PR favoured by those who contacted him online. Support for both PR and AV and FPTP at town hall.
62
John NaterYES
63
John OliverYES
64
Jonathan WilkinsonYES
65
Joyce MurrayYES
MP report did not explicitly state it but all the discussion was about MMP and STV. From attendee: "There were a variety of views presented, but most people were in favour of some sort of proportional system."
66
Judy FooteYES
67
Julie DabrusinYES
68
Julie DzerowiczYES
69
Justin TrudeauYES
70
Kamal KheraYES
71
Karen LudwigYES
72
Karen McCrimmonYES
73
Karen VecchioYES
74
Karina GouldYES
75
Kate YoungYES
76
Ken HardieYES
77
Ken MacDonaldYES
Confusing. Describes high support for ranked ballots but describes PR objectives: "Contrasting this narrative was the majority of support for change. The bulk of participants voiced their support for changing the electoral system in Canada to better reflect Canadian’s votes and to have a higher chance of having their votes count.
78
Kim RuddYES
79
Kirsty DuncanYES
This MP's report makes it impossible to tell how many supported what. It was clear that "representation of minority votes" - that is PR - was the second principle people identified. An attendee reported to us that the town hall was a "mixed bag" of topics but "Of 14 groups that reported to the large group TWO were happy with FPTP." That is why I've put this down as majority for change.
80
Kyle PetersonYES
The report summary seems to suggest that people want all the outcomes of PR but MP didn't name PR: "Common themes expressed were need for voter equality, diversity in Parliament - political diversity, regional diversity, ethnic diversity - as well as collaboration." The feedback we received from those who attended said majority for principle of PR so I am making that call.
81
Larry MaguireYES
After contacting supporters in Brandon, we have a second hand report from an attendee which says: "Most people spoke in favour of PR and there was not an overwhelming call for a referendum." This directly contradicts what the MP report says. However, I don't feel confident enough to make the call here so will go with what MP said, which is consistent with Conservative town halls.
82
Larry MillerYES
MP had a telephone town hall where 31/31 people able to get through agreed with him about keeping FPTP. We got reports quite a few PR supporters were on hold. A non-partisan/multi-partisan group in the riding also organized a town hall which was advertised in local media - most for PR - submitted recently as a brief.
83
Lawrence MacAuleyYES
Most FPTP, but open to AV. Our PEI leader was surprised to learn about this town hall from the Member Report.
84
Linda LapointeYES
85
Lloyd LongfieldYES
86
Luc TheriaultYES
87
Marc GarneauYES
88
Majid JowhariYES
89
Marc MillerYES
90
Marc SerreYES
Says attendees are mostly satisfied with FPTP. They oppose AV. They don't want a referendum. Also says "They would like to see a more proportional system of voting, that does not hand off specific decision making to densely populated areas..." Main thing I got from this report is that attendees were not opposed to change and are open to PR - concerned about Liberals picking AV to benefit themselves, how PR is designed for rural areas and people needing more education.
91
Marie-Claude BibeauYES
Attendee: "Almost everybody was clearly for the proportional. Only one person talk about a majority electoral system."
92
Marilyn GladuYES
93
Mark EykingYES
Impossible to tell. Message was that most feel 40% majorities unfair but MP was not clear what participants thought of options.
94
Mark GerretsenYES
From the report we received and this below on reddit, clear that a) fairness was top value and b) interest in FPTP, MMP and STV. It seemed highly likely most were for principle of PR. Checked with attendees and they confirmed their impression was majority PR. https://www.reddit.com/r/CanadaPolitics/comments/5328xi/electoral_reform_consultation_recap_kingston/
95
Mark HollandYES
Holland clear that most wanted change but not specific if PR supporters outnumbered others - very likely they did reading his report but not clear enough to be sure
96
MARILÈNE GILLYES
97
Marwan Tabarra
98
Maryam MonsefYES
99
Matt DecourceyYES
100
Michael LevittYES
MP report sounds like a majority for PR. "Significant number for FPTP" and rest for change says MP.
