It's happening in Quebec! "Reform of the voting system is not only important but non-partisan. The Chief Electoral Officer will play a key role in this reform because of his expertise in the organization of elections" said Quebec's Minister of Justice.
Ever since the Quebec Estates-General on the Reform of Democratic Institutions, a citizens consultation, voted 90% in favour of the Mixed Member Proportional system in 2002, and all parties had it in their platform in 2003, Quebec has seen a wide consensus for this reform, but it has always stalled. "The new voting system would be mixed compensatory proportional (MMP) and should allow better representation of political parties in the National Assembly. Not like Trudeau. During the election campaign, François Legault went so far as to say that he will not do "a Justin Trudeau" in reference to the broken promise of the Canadian prime minister, who had also committed to reforming the voting system." "The Legault government has committed to changing the voting system by the next election, and to table a bill in the first year of its mandate. It has the support of the Parti Québécois and Quebec Solidaire. There will be consultations, but since there is consensus among three parties, he believes the passage of the piece of legislation will be swift." #breakingnews #canada #ontario #quebec #novascotia #newbrunswick #newfoundland #nunavut #northwestterrories #yukon #britishcolumbia #alberta #manitoba #saskachewan #diversity #canadians4pr #vote #toronto #ottawa #vancouver #montreal #change #politics #
