91% of developed nations adopted voting reform

Of 34 developed countries, 31 have moved on to better voting systems that ensure an actual majority of voters is represented in government. That's 91%.

Canada and the UK use primitive FPP which breaks down when there are more than two parties.

Canadians deserve better. Canadians must demand better.
