Mr. Speaker, I thank the member opposite for his comments and for his efforts in bringing forward the opposition motion today.
In his comments he talked about the need for parties to work together on this issue. I could not agree more. I think when we are working on modernizing our electoral system and taking advantage of this opportunity to bring our electoral system into the 21st century, it will require the input and participation of all parties to get there. I commend the efforts of the member today to try to move this process forward.
I am interested in his comments. He talked about the importance of the committee reaching out to constituencies that are not traditionally engaged, people who feel disenfranchised currently within the existing system. He talked about seniors, the disabled, aboriginal people, people who were not seen voting in large numbers, young people.
What are his thoughts about how the committee might reach out to some of those groups, engage them in this process, and ensure their voices are heard?
