Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament Assembled,

We the undersigned Residents of Canada

Draw the attention of the House of Commons to the following
THAT Canada is one of the most stable and admired democracies in the world.

AND THAT the consent of the governed is a foundational element of Canadian democracy and is the sole basis of the legitimacy of those elected to govern.

AND THAT no fundamental change to how members of Parliament are elected should be made unilaterally by the very individuals potentially seeking election or re-election.

AND THAT the only fair and comprehensive method to seek the consent of the governed in respect of changes to how members of Parliament are elected is a national referendum administered to all voting-age citizens of Canada.

THEREFORE, your petitioners call upon the House of Commons to pass a motion affirming the need for a national referendum on any proposal to change Canada’s current method of electing Members of Parliament before that proposal is implemented into law.
