Electoral-Reform.com is a website for people who are passionate about Electoral Reform. It’s informational in nature and is not profit driven. Simply put, I’m tired of seeing the popular vote mean nothing. I’m tired of seeing the electorate scared into voting for one of the major parties for fear of “wasting your vote”. It’s time that Canada reform it’s voting system so that it represents the will of the electorate.
Who are you?
I’m a 47 year old guy living in Central Ontario. I got my undergraduate degree from Carleton U. I work in Digital Project Management.
I despise FPTP. I don’t like Majority governments. I don’t think a government that had more people vote against them than for should have carte blanche to pass whatever legislation they want.
I have voted for all the parties at one time or another either Federally or Provincially. I am not a loyal backer of any of political party. I evaluate each platform before each election, attend public debates, and usually decide who will receive my vote the day of the election because I’m usually forced to vote strategically.
Why are you doing this?
I’ve been in favour of Electoral Reform since the first time I voted. I realized then that my vote had no impact beyond my local riding. It’s really absurd that most of the electorate votes against the party that wins, yet that party receives the balance of power. We need to collectively demand reform because this inequitable situation the case over and over and over.
Are you affilated with any political parties?
Nope. I am not a member of any political party, I do not financially support any political party, nor do I have any direct/indirect personal relationships with anyone in any political party.
Are you affiliated with any other organizations?
Nope. The organizations I’ve linked to on this site are organizations that I think do a great job advancing the cause of Electoral Reform in Canada. We do not endorse each other nor are affiliated in any way. All opinions expressed on this site are my own.
Why do you talk about US and International Electoral issues?
It’s important to learn from other similar situations. Learn from their mistakes and successes and see how we can improve the Canadian Electoral System. Noteworthy news and happenings regarding Electoral Reform will be shared on this site.
Being Canadian, our proximity and relationship with the United States of America is very important. Everything that happens in the US has some degree of impact here in Canada. As it pertains to Electoral Reform, we both currently have a leader in power that did not win the popular vote and there is a need for Electoral-Reform in both systems.
