The Canadian government has just fallen, which means we’re headed into another election. This in theory is a great thing in a democracy, but sadly the reaction seems to be more like:
Why do we feel like that? Because I’ve not met one Canadian who is happy with the voting system we have. This results in record lows of citizens actually voting. If we, Canadians, want to vote for one thing this election, let it be a leader who will commit to electoral reform. Imagine we had a voting system where we felt our vote actually mattered, and that we could vote for something we actually believe in; otherwise, the few of us who vote will continue to vote for the party we dislike the least.
