I think the benefits of our current electoral system is that it’s easy to understand and fairly quick to count the votes and work out who has won so results can be declared relatively quickly after the polls close. The drawback of our current electoral system is because FPTP restricts a constituency’s choice of candidates, the representation of minorities and women could suffer as the safest looking candidate is the one most likely to be offered the chance to stand for election.
As I said earlier, this system could be unfair to some minorities.
One example of a successful civil disobedience case is Bill 78, In Quebec that stopped people from protesting and put fins on it because of increasing protests on tuition cost raising. Thousands of people wearing red went out on the streets in civil disobedience of this bill and the bill was removed. I agree with this change because there was no violent act at all and the point across strongly. Therefore, I think this was really good example to show democracy.
