Conservative Emerges as Pro-MMP Spokesperson in Niagara

Mel Grunstein, the Conservative candidate in the riding of Welland in both the 2004 and 2006 federal elections, has emerged as a spokesperson for the pro-MMP camp in the Niagara Region.

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The Niagara Falls Citizens for Democracy group is hosting one of the first debates on the two systems. Mel Grunstein, president of the civic watchdog group, will argue in favour of the mixed member proportional system, while Lorne White will debate the merits of the current system.

Their meeting is scheduled for the Niagara Falls Public Library's Victoria Avenue branch, tonight at 7 p.m. Grunstein called referendums "the purest form of democracy" because voters are weighing in on just one issue. "I love them," Grunstein said.
