NEWS ~ NDP fighting to make sure every vote counts

“It just doesn’t make sense that although less than 40 per cent of Canadians voted for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives, the Conservatives have a majority in the House of Commons,� said Scott. “It's time for a new electoral system, one that actually represents us, to ensure that each person’s vote truly counts.�

The NDP is committed to strengthening Canada’s democracy and has consistently called for changes to the first-past-the-post electoral system. Canadians deserve local MPs who are directly accountable to them—and a House of Commons that reflects the support each party actually receives from voters.
