Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • There is currently no election law at the federal level that allows elected politicians to be removed from parliament; and
  • The Liberal Party of Canada election platform in 2015 was to have electoral reform.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to pass a bill that allows for recall referendums.
