Trudeau breaks promise to change voting system in time for 2019 election

Published in on January 31, 2017

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is abandoning his long-held promise to change the way Canadians vote in federal elections.

Citizens for Public Justice said in a press release: “Our electoral system must address the needs of the most vulnerable in Canadian society and ensure that everyone can contribute to our democratic system. A system of proportional representation would do a better job of making the voices of Canadians heard.”
