Reforming our system is too complicated



Indeed, reforming the electoral system presents large challenges. However, it is a question of fundamental justice. A proportional electoral system would better represent the voice of all Canadian men and women, which makes it a fundamental investment in our democracy.

Several countries such as New Zealand and Ireland have shown that it is possible to change the first-past-the-post system to a system of proportional representation. Germany and the Scandinavian countries, to mention only those, also have a mixed-member proportional system. Canada could do the same and change its electoral system for the better.
