Just curious if anyone cares . . .
Harper prorogued parliament and people screamed bloody murder and that it was an affront to democracy.
Trudeau is proposing to change how we vote. To me this seems like a pretty big deal. The party in power will change how we select our parliament with 'consultations' of Canadians. No referendum. I know this was part of their platform, but so was a $10 B deficit and 10,000 refugees by Christmas. We know 'promises' are flexible when need be.
Without a referendum, or at the minimum all party support in parliament, it seems to be that it would be difficult to legitimize a new system. People simply may not believe it to be fair, or believe that it was gamed to benefit the Liberals.
Should something as fundamental as how we vote not be put to a national referendum ? Why does it seem that there is low concern about this ? I'm pretty sure if Harper proposed to change the voting system there would have been massive protests on Parliament Hill.
Does anyone care ?
