Electoral reform

It’s too bad he’s a lame duck and can’t do a thing about it, except complain just like anyone else. With our false majority government, the Liberal Party of Canada will do anything it wants just like the previous Conservative government did.

So in reality, Mel Arnold and all of the others in our first past the post system, are nothing but a financial drain on all taxpayers that will only compound when they start receiving their bloated pension plans. If you want to do something for your constituency, then help change this 12th century electoral system that we’re saddled with. Eight per cent of OECD countries use some form of proportional representation. Only Britain, the U.S. and Canada use this system exclusively.
