The Prime Minister of Canada: Implement Proportional Representation in Parliament for True Democracy.

The government only truly represents the citizens of our country, when the House of Commons is comprised of MP's in the same percentage as the votes cast for each of the political parties. We must eliminate our FPTP system of unfair vote counting, that can dismiss millions of Canadian voters opinions, and not even give them 1 MP that represents their values.

      When the Conservatives got 2x the vote as the Liberals did, it resulted in 8x as many seats. The Greens got 10% the vote of the Conservatives, so should get 10% as many seats, 16, but only got 1 seat. In past elections, the Liberals have benefitted at the unfair detriment to the Conservatives. Fair is fair, and unfair is unfair. It is never right to dismiss Canadians views and voter intentions based upon an antiquated vote counting system.

      When we have true democracy, important and needed changes can be made that otherwise would never be accomplished.
