Now this just caught my eye...take a gander here...

This is from the Conservative Party of Canada's Policy Declaration...

C) Democratic Reform

Section 10.Electoral Reform

i) A Conservative Government will consider changes to electoral systems, including proportional representation, single transferable ballot, fixed election dates and the use of referendums.


Well, well, well...it seems as if the Good Tory Party supports, or at least will think about, supporting PR...cool, eh?...

I wanna know what all you Tories, non-alligned conservatives and lefty spies think about this...

Personally, I say great! Finally a government with the balls to change something wrong!...

Any other thoughts?

erl

P.S. ... I've wrote a little bit on my blog about it...it's right here...I think it's good... 8)

The government actually announced earlier this year they will be consulting Canadians on this very manner. It went largely unnoticed in the mainstream media, and while I'm not a fan of PR, I think there is much progress to be made on the democratic reform front.

So under reported that the only news articles I can find are critial Dippers and articles about the way in which the contract to carry out these "consultations" was awarded

But don't be fooled by the article, there are alot of members of the Conservative Party that do support PR. Just not me.. :P

I think some sort of electoral reform is needed, however I don't think it will happen anytime soon.

The elites are too vested in the status-quo, & the main stream media remains silent making it a non-issue to Canadians.

True. The parties with the power to change things (i.e. Liberals & Conservatives) benefit from our current system. That's why I don't see it happening anytime soon.

Please back up such statements with one or more arguments.

People don't come to this board to read empty rhetoric such as "the Liberals are corrupt"... please entertain us with justification for your statements.
