d.knox: equal representation would mean more representatives from the under-represented regions -- the lower city and also the north Mountain.

Yes, I argued above that councillors tend to favor the interests of people who actually vote, but it's not an all-or-nothing phenomenon. And while some issues tend to play out along socioeconomic lines, others play out according to geography. So the interests of all voters in wards 1-8 and 10 would be better (if imperfectly) served by a fair allocation of seats by population.
