Dave makes a good point about the need for systemic change. Our government is practically in charge of this type of change. A great starting point for having our government enact environmentally-friendly systemic change is to have them listen to what Canadians like us want. This past federal election, [about 7% of Canadians voted for the Green Party and yet only 1% of members of parliament (these people create laws) are with the Green Party](https://www.fairvote.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Canada-votes-2019-no-branding.png). This is because we have a dysfunctional voting system called first-past-the-post. The alternatives are proportional representation voting sytems, which would've given us the 7% Green Party MPs that we should've had. The NDP party is also under-represented because of first-past-the-post. How do we change our voting system to a proportional representation voting system? You can start by signing [this declaration by Fairvote Canada](https://secure.fairvote.ca/en/action/declaration-of-voters-rights-on-proportional-representation-d-claration-des-droits-des). If you're extra keen, also sign [this petition for a citizens' assembly for voting system reform](https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-2315). Thanks for the awesome article, Dave.
