Vote to reform our election system

"In this election, Canadians should vote for fair elections."

In this election, Canadians should vote for fair elections.

We need a voting system that gives fair and accurate representation of the votes cast (proportional representation). For the last four years we have been governed by a “majority” government that was elected by 38 per cent of the voters. This has not fairly represented Canadian interests.

It is not wise to vote on the basis of any one single issue, however, establishing a fair voting system should factor highly in our priorities this election.

A fairly elected government would allow the concerns of all citizens to be heard and would make it possible for the necessary debate and negotiation that characterizes a working democracy.
