Hello from Denis Falvey in Nova Scotia
I have been analyzing data and jurisprudence for Canadian electoral reform for over eight years now. My applicable backgrounds are in mathematics, data analysis, and computer programming, since 1970.
This approach has led to an essay on Constitutional Electoral Reform, which I would like members of the forum to critique for logical errors.
I don't particularly care if anyone likes SMDPR and I am not interested in delving into the minutia of anyone's favourite alternative electoral system.
What matters to me is the Canadian Constitution as it applies to elections, the logic of my objective measures of democracy and local representation, and fact-based common sense. But if there are logical or factual errors in my work I would like to know.
This appears to be the appropriate place to post such an essay, so I will seek to post it in draft form.
the logic of my objective measures of democracy and local representation,
Do you have documentation on this in something succinct. You may have trouble getting people interested in reading a longer form essay specific to a Country. If you have short summaries of these objective measure please provide a link.
If you do not have such documentation, electowiki.org/ would be a great place to put it. There already exists a page for the concept of Proportionate Representation which is important in the Canadian Constitution.
Is this what your measure of local representation is quantifying? If not there are several others
I am happy to proofread a work for mathematical error & style. My background is in math though, not writing.
Feel free to either post it here or you can send it privately.
