Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague from across for his thoughtful presentation on the bill.
My concern is to get people out to vote. That should be the primary concern for us all.
With the changes proposed by the bill, the Chief Electoral Officer would not be allowed to promote voting in this country. We would move away from a voucher system, which worked for 100,000 people in the last election. There would be changes made to the voter identification system of 2007. We would have a situation of declining voters in our system.
Why does the hon. member think that reducing the number of people voting would be a good thing for Canadians?
