Happy birthday — not

It's been 10 years since the Reform Party swallowed up Canada's traditional conservative party. What's worse is that they've been ruling for 8 of those 10 years — and with someone as abrasive and unlikable as Stephen Harper at the helm.

This does not bode well for the future of Canada.

That's why voting reform is the ONLY issue.

Voting reform or bust

With voting reform, Canada will be ruled by Canadians. Without it, Canada will be controlled by a 30% minority of neo-con and social-con fanatics who have vowed to change our country beyond recognition.

Since proportional representation was rejected in provincial referendums, the safest move is to fix our existing system with ranked ballot voting first. This is the system all parties use to elect their leaders.

If we had PV ranked ballot in 2011, Harper would already be gone. Instead of a 40% minority overruling the will of the 60% super-majority, Canadians would've got what they voted for. (Crazy idea, huh?)
