Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • citizens of Canada demand that a referendum be held regarding any changes that might be proposed to our federal electoral system, as voting via a referendum is the only truly democratic way in which the citizens of Canada can express their opinions on electoral reform.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Democratic Institutions to hold a referendum regarding any changes that might be proposed to Canada’s federal electoral system so that we, the citizens of Canada, can have a direct say on this matter.
