Peggy Nash will move swiftly to implement proportional representation

Toronto / 27 February 2022 – Peggy Nash, MP Parkdale—High Park and NDP Leadership candidate, released today her plan to implement proportional representation.

“Our first-past-the-post system no longer reflects our multi-party political landscape and uninspired electorate,” said Nash.

Citing the current parliament as an example, in which the Harper Conservatives hold a majority of the seats in the House of Commons while only having garnered 40% of the popular vote, Nash added: “People feel like their votes play no part in shaping the course of our government. It’s no wonder voter turnout has slipped to below 60%.”
