In advance of Vancouver's municipal election, a motion passed in council to randomize the order of candidates listed on voting ballots. This episode features political scientist and University of Calgary professor Jack Lucas who argues that rather than making voting fairer, Vancouver's newly randomized ballot actually creates a new set of advantages.
