The ERRE Committee’s Nathan Cullen (NDP) will be crossing Canada making stops in Liberal ridings to demonstrate how much support there actually is for electoral reform!
“There’s one last vote on electoral reform in Parliament before the May deadline. After that, it could be too late to set up a new voting system in time for the next election.
This spring, MPs will vote on whether to accept the recommendations of the Canada-wide consultation tour, including that the government hold a referendum where Canadians can choose between the current voting system and a proportional one.
We just need 20 Liberal MPs to keep their promise and vote YES to electoral reform.”
Help convince Liberal MPs to keep their promise and vote YES to electoral reform before the May vote.
Three Ways to Help Canada win this vote!
#1 Bring your family and friends out to your local event
(contact Nathan Cullen or your local NDP folk to get involved to help bring the tour your way)
#2 Circulate the Petition and ask your family, friends and neighbors to sign on.
Go door to door, or spend an hour or two with your clipboard outside City Hall, your grocery store, Speakers Corner etc.
Get signatures at family gatherinngs or local activities or events (ie after church, at PTA or service club meetings, fundraising events etc.)
#3 Download & mail Nathan Cullen’s Postcard
Your local Fair Vote Canada chapter may have a post -card you can send, or you can make your own. You can even send your own letter to your Liberal MP (better yet, say it is an open letter and send a copy to your local newspaper!)
Electoral reform is not dead, the movement is growing.
Because every vote should count.
NOTE: The original title of this article was “Nathan Cullen’s Broken Promise Tour” which is the name of the tour I was given by my Fair Vote Canada friends.
But I’ve been notified that the title has been truncated to “Nathan Cullen’s Broken Promise” on at least one third party platform preview.
This certainly gives the wrong impression! Rather like the “Too Cool To Do Drugs” Pencil. In future I will strive to ensure the first few words of the title don’t mislead if truncated. ~ LLR
