Well it seems Justin Trudeau’s promise that there would be a new voting system in place by the 2019 election is dead.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is abandoning his long-held promise to change the way Canadians vote in federal elections.
In a mandate letter for newly appointed Democratic Institutions Minister Karina Gould, Trudeau makes it clear that electoral reform — once top of mind for the Liberal government — is no longer on the agenda.
“Changing the electoral system will not be in your mandate,” the prime minister writes in the letter, released Wednesday.
I for one am glad. I didn’t see what was wrong with “first passed the post” in the first place.
How many promises is now that Trudeau has broken?
