How we vote in a democracy is a fundamental question requiring Canadian voters to give their approval through a binding referendum because it will affect every election in a way far more important than any budget or policy decision.
At my strata condominium, our government-mandated rules state that on key questions the owners must vote 75% in favour for many changes to pass.
By contrast, why would we change our entire Canadian electoral system without at least a binding majority vote?
It should not be easier for MPs to change how we elect governments than for condo owners to repair their roof.
