This is an implicit voter-produced list proportional representation where the 49 ridings now have 59 members in the legislature. For a few ridings the voters will be assured that their second representative in Parliament has not been selected from outside their riding, but comes from their own riding votes on the day of the election. This Proportional Representation model is the simplest solution for democratic reform.
