I would like to thank the hon. member for his question. I often enjoy hearing his questions.
I am not going to get into debate here, nor will I pretend to present what the actual proportional representation system will be. However, the member's questions and issues are very valid. They are precisely why our party is calling for the parties to get together and set in place a dialogue among Canadians so that we can bring in information about the pros and cons of the various systems and can learn from other nations on what has and has not worked in their countries.
From my standpoint, I want to make sure that we have a system that represents both the broader national interests and the interests of my own local community.
