If you ask Canadians how to improve our democracy, as The 180 with Jim Brown did, by far the most frequent suggestion is to get rid of the First-Past-the-Post voting system. Many suggest moving to a system of proportional representation. Currently in federal politics, a party can form a majority government with far fewer than a majority of the votes. Kelly Carmichael, executive director of Fair Vote Canada, is not surprised so many people want a change. "We're realizing that people are really disenfranchised with the whole system... usually over half of all voters don't cast effective votes. We call them wasted votes."
