On November 7, 2016, more than 37,000 Island voters who participated in a historic plebiscite on electoral reform. The result was a resounding vote for change.
However, on November 16, Premier Wade MacLauchlan tabled a motion that would see the plebiscite results ignored, and instead another vote take place in 2019 - alongside the next "First Past the Post" provincial election.
We know that the PEI Liberal party is not a monolith - we know that there is a diversity of opinion within their caucus on this matter. We call on all MLAs to be 'democracy heroes': be courageous, stand up for democracy within your party, do the right thing, and to honour the vote.
