About Majority Coalition Canada
Democracy means the rule of the majority, but too often our country is governed by a party with only minority support of the eligible Canadian electorate. Whatever happened to the principle of majority rule?
It’s time for democratic reform
Canada’s democracy is antiquated. Its first-past-the-post electoral system flip-flops between one-sided governments that often are not supported by the majority of voters, when a coalition government would better represent the views of most Canadians. Our parliamentary system also needs reform. By degrees, power has been taken away from parliament and concentrated into the prime minister’s office. This institutionalised autocracy is not democratic.
