Electoral Reform

Thank you to everyone who has submitted comments and survey responses to my office.

We will be using the feedback to prepare my submission to the Electoral Reform parliamentary committee.

Electoral Reform General Info

The government has said that the 2015 federal election would be the last “first-past-the-post” election. This gives us a once-in-a-generation opportunity to change the federal electoral system. Canada’s MPs have been given the task of collecting feedback from constituents on potential electoral reform, and are due to report back to Parliament in the fall with results.

You can find information about electoral reform from advocacy organizations:
• Fair Vote Canada
• The Broadbent Institute
• Leadnow

You can see the Special Committee on Electoral Reform’s guidebooks and listen to hearings on its website.

Watch a video by Dennis Pilon, Associate Professor, Political Science, York University, about Mixed Member Proportional Representation.

You can download my handout and Dr. Urquhart's handout that were given out at my Sept. 8 Electoral Reform townhall.
