Lawrence Millar - NDP

Question 1 - Past Record

For new candidates: Did you support and participate in the movement to Honour The Vote in 2016? Why?

Yes, I firmly believe in the need for proportional representation as a key to good governance.

Question 2 - Principles

Do you support Proportional Representation on principle? Why?

Yes I do support PR as the only way for most voters to have a voice in government.

Question 3 - The Particular model

Do you support the specific Proportional Representation model that is proposed for PEI? Why?

I support the MMP model. It is the model favoured by the majority of people using the ranked ballot in the 2016 plebiscite. I recall it was high on my ranking in that ballot.

Question 4 - Legitimacy of the Process

Do you believe the 2019 Referendum is a more legitimate, equally legitimate, or less legitimate process than 2016's plebiscite? Why?

I believe the Plebiscite and the referendum have equal legitimacy. The plebiscite has enabled the simple yes/no question on the referendum ballot and clarified the public's preference so that there is less chance of misunderstanding and a lower ability of opponents to confuse the public by mixing up models of PR.

Questions 5 - Commitment to future action

If you are a supporter of Proportional Representation:  Regardless of the Referendum result, if a majority of MLAs were in-principle supporters of Proportional Representation, would you introduce and/or support such legislation to improve the island's electoral system?

Yes I would seek to move forward with Proportional Representation as a way to improve PEI's electoral system and provide a model for a federal move towards PR.

 

Michele Beaton - Green

Question 1 - Past Record

For new candidates: Did you support and participate in the movement to Honour The Vote in 2016? Why?

I supported the movement.

Question 2 - Principles

Do you support Proportional Representation on principle? Why?

Yes, I believe every voice matters. Proportional Representation ensures that happens

Question 3 - The Particular model

Do you support the specific Proportional Representation model that is proposed for PEI? Why?

Yes, I agree that with the proposed model.

Question 4 - Legitimacy of the Process

Do you believe the 2019 Referendum is a more legitimate, equally legitimate, or less legitimate process than 2016's plebiscite? Why?

Equally but with differences. I believe that 50.1% should decide it. I do not believe that there should be an additional requirement by district. I also believe that this needs to be binding by all parties with no loophole.

Questions 5 - Commitment to future action

If you are a supporter of Proportional Representation:  Regardless of the Referendum result, if a majority of MLAs were in-principle supporters of Proportional Representation, would you introduce and/or support such legislation to improve the island's electoral system?

As a Green Party candidate, we will honour the vote.
