Federal Electoral Reform Committee

The Canadian government ran a review process last year with the originally-stated goal of recommending by December a new voting system for Canada.

In the run-up to last year’s election, the Liberal Party said “We are committed to ensuring that 2015 will be the last federal election conducted under the first-past-the-post voting system,” and the federal government has recently launched an all-party Electoral Reform Committee to officially review our voting system and recommend reforms.

You can visit the official website to learn more about the committee and to read the minutes of the meetings and its final report.

In the end, though, the government reneged on its promise. In response, Fair Voting BC is preparing to launch a Charter challenge to argue that our current voting system violates our Charter rights to effective representation and equal treatment. Please help by pledging your support:
