We are here to remind you that we still want a better democracy. We aren't giving up on our vision of Proportional Representation on PEI.
No country that has ever moved to Proportional Representation has ever gone back to First Past the Post - it's a better option that stands the test of time, and we believe that PEI can lead Canada’s democracy into its next phase.
We want a future where every voter is equally represented, and where the legislature reflects the diversity of the Island's views. We know that Proportional Representation results in better results for under-represented and marginalized groups. We want collaboration, listening and cooperation, not competition, arrogance and control, to be the norm in government.
At the next election, we will be looking for candidates and party platforms that clearly commit to implementing Proportional Representation. We need legislators who are prepared to set aside partisan interests, and advance our democracy.
Recognizing that better is always possible, and that it is never too late to renew our faith in democracy, we call on you to Honour the Voters and...
- Implement Mixed-Member Proportional in time for the next election, and,
- If you're going to ask us to vote on this again, it's time to show us your plan, during the Fall sitting of the legislature.
Yours sincerely, and with hope,
