To the Editor,
The correct answer to the question “Which party will benefit from electoral reform” is “Who cares?”
What voters need to be concerned about is which voting system is best for voters. The answer is, whatever system makes every vote count and accurately translates our votes into seats in Parliament, allowing each of us to be represented by someone we actually voted for, so that we can hold politicians and political parties accountable. That’s pretty much the definition of proportional representation. There are various types of proportional voting systems, but the rest is details. Yes, voters need to learn more about voting systems.

P.S. Shouldn’t Jamie Schmale hold a referendum to find out whether he
should hold a referendum on holding a referendum?
