I made this video as the final project for a course on Canadian civics. This was when I was barely starting out as a video creator and still exploring my interest in this area. My teacher liked it and played the video in front of the entire class, which gave me some early validation to pursue this field more seriously. (Thank you, Mr. Pearce)

Inspired by Nicky Case's explorable and CGP Grey's many videos about voting systems. If you want to learn about this topic, I would highly recommend learning from those resources rather than my video.
