Re: the debate about the change of how our votes are applied to elect someone to Parliament,
I personally believe that because the way we currently vote is the process of what entrenched the Charter of Rights and Freedoms into our current society and so that the same process as is used to change the Charter should apply to these proposed changes. If there is going to be a referendum then there should be one in each and every province and territory and if all of those agree to that then the changes get implemented. A national referendum, in my opinion, would not be appropriate given the above stated circumstances. And of course I know that the conservatives shy away from basing any action they make on the brilliant document that is our Charter of Rights, but what is the excuse for the young man who has that this brilliant legal acumen of his father Pierre Elliot Trudeau is his legacy?
This issue is not a party lines thing but rather a matter of Canadian human rights that are the basis of the structure and fabric of our Society.
