Fair and equal?

Earlier, we reported provincial Liberals are discussing how the party will select their next leader and spending limits for those who want to replace him. In that context, some are pointing to the rules the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario used during last year's contest to replace John Tory as a possible model. Those rules established a $750,000 spending limit and saw Tim Hudak elected using a system in which party members cast their ballots by riding association. Each riding is assigned 100 electoral votes. A leadership candidate then receives a share of those votes equal to the percentage of ballots cast for him or her. Interesting, eh?
