Good article Chris. You should also look at fair voting alternatives (i.e., proportional rep models) which are designed to ensure that all groups of voters are fairly represented. With instant run-off voting, you still leave a lot of voters without representation.

If you're interested, I could connect you with some of the people in the Toronto Chapter of Fair Vote Canada, who are working on that same issue in Toronto (unfortunately, we don't have a Hamilton chapter right now). Let me know if you're interested.
