To the Special Committee on Electoral Reform,

Parties have been winning majority governments with less than 40% of the overall vote. Other parties end up with few or no seats, even when a substantial number of Canadians have voted for them.

That’s why we need to work together to build a better democracy. It is possible to have a system in which we can both elect a local MP and make sure that there is a close match between the number of MPs from each party and the votes each party receives. Mixed Member Proportional Representation is a much fairer way to elect governments than we do right now. It’s the best of both worlds. 

I would like Committee members to bring forward a recommendation to replace our current FPTP system with Mixed Member Proportional Representation in time for the 2019 Federal election.
