*UPDATE - NOV 22, 2016 - A card containing messages from more than 400 Islanders was gratefully received by Peter Bevan-Baker today. Thank you so much - your words of support will be a source of inspiration and strength to him for a long time to come!
This has been a rough week for democracy.
Just over a week after Islanders voted in a groundbreaking plebiscite to adopt a Mixed Member Proportional voting system, the spring session of the Legislature began - and with it a disappointing set of maneuvers by the Government in an attempt to disregard the result of the vote.
In all of this, Peter Bevan-Baker has shone brightly as a champion of democracy, taking every opportunity he has in the House to fight for the rights of voters to be respected. But this has not always been easy - it's taking all of Peter's fortitude, and will demand a lot more from him in the days and weeks to come.
Will you send a message of support to Peter to let him know how many of us are with him in this trying chapter of our democracy? All of our messages will be printed on a large card which will be presented to Peter at the beginning of next week.
