moved for leave to introduce Bill C-322, an act to provide for a House of Commons committee to study proportional representation in federal elections.
Mr. Speaker, the purpose of the bill is to begin a study of the idea of proportional representation in terms of changing the voting system in Canada. We are one of few countries in the world that does not use some measure of PR.
The purpose of the bill is to look into what model might be appropriate and then put that model before the Canadian people.
