LETTER: Trudeau must deliver on election promise.

Justin Trudeau won the 2015 federal election on the promise of electoral reform.

Dear Editor:

Justin Trudeau won the 2015 federal election on the promise of electoral reform, and he was willing to deliver on that promise, till he found out the people want proportional representation.

Trudeau and Stephen Harper both hate democracy, and want a ranked, preferential, run-off ballot, to be able to continue to form majority governments, with about one-third of the popular vote, leaving the other two-thirds with no representation in the legislatures.

The NDP canvassed the country, and found out more than 70 per cent of the people want proportional representation.

FairVoteCanada also canvassed the country, and confirmed that more than 70 per cent of the people want proportional representation.

That leaves Trudeau with only two choices: Deliver on his promise – or resign as Prime Minister.

The lying has to stop.
