No Electoral Reform
Disappointed, let down, betrayed. I’m not sure which best expresses my reaction to the news that our Liberal government has dropped the idea of changing the system for electing members of parliament.
So, the “first past the post” system lives on. No-one said it was going to be easy, but when campaign promises led to a Liberal majority, I, like many others, believed it was going to happen. Canadians had high hopes and expectations.
Not fulfilling campaign promises is not the way to create confidence and trust. I promise to keep watching to see how many changes to issues/policies talked about in the campaign become law. A promise I will keep.
