The evidence is clear. Canada needs electoral reform

ED BROADBENT AND HUGH SEGAL CONTRIBUTED TO THE GLOBE AND MAIL PUBLISHED 10 HOURS AGO UPDATED OCTOBER 8, 2018

Ed Broadbent is chair of the Broadbent Institute. Hugh Segal is an author, former senator, and principal of Massey College

Aside from the ascendance of newer political parties at the expense of those more established, one of the most significant aspects of Monday’s election in Quebec is what it may mean for electoral reform across the country.

Three of the four parties now represented in the National Assembly, including François Legault’s Coalition Avenir Québec, who will now form a majority government, have signed an agreement declaring that they will support changing the province’s voting system from the first-past-the-post model to a proportional system before the next election, and do so without a referendum. Mr. Legault now has the clearest of mandates to implement this commitment. . . . . . .
