The Council of Canadians stands up for democracy as a fundamental pillar of our society.
Proportional representation will ensure that future elections are more democratic than our outdated first-past-the-post voting system. It will provide a fairer representation of votes cast and prevent a governing party from holding total power after gaining only a small percentage of the popular vote.
The Council of Canadians supports proportional representation. You can too.
Below are a few simple steps you can take to stand up for proportional representation and a more democratic Canada.
