Proportional Representation

Proportional RepresentationCanadian citizens demand the following basic democratic rights:

- To cast an equal and effective vote and to be represented fairly in Parliament, regardless of political belief or place of residence
- To be governed by a fairly elected Parliament where the share of seats held by each political party closely reflects the popular vote
- To live under legitimate laws approved by a majority of elected Parliamentarians representing a majority of voters

The need for reform is urgent, and Canadians need a Parliament that represents the political and social diversity of Canada.

Help Elizabeth secure electoral reform! Sign below or download this petition, have as many people as possible to sign it, and mail it – postage free – to either her Ottawa or Sidney offices.
