Thank you for running to represent the riding of Cowichan-Malahat-Langford. Our democracy relies on choices given to voters, and your candidacy provides that choice.
But, our democracy is currently broken because a party with a minority of votes can wield 100% of the power, thereby shutting out a majority of the voters.
Worse, instead of fixing this problem, recent changes have weakened our electoral watchdog and given political parties more power!
It doesn't have to be this way. Canada lags far behind other industrialized countries in implementing a voting system where all our votes count.
I am therefore adding my voice to other voters who will vote for a candidate who has a mandate to change our voting system.
I would like you to talk with your party leader to tell him that this is an issue that voters in Cowichan-Malahat-Langford take seriously, and I look forward to hearing your response.
