Statement on Electoral Reform

February 3, 2017

Moving forward, I will work within the Liberal Party to continue to present what I am hearing from Guelph.  We are continuing to discuss the Canada Elections Act and hope to make meaningful changes that will improve access to voting, and promote greater voter participation. I will continue to connect with Guelph on this, as I think the democratic process is fundamental to us providing stable government.

It has been made clear through the Minister’s Mandate Letter that our system of voting will not be changing by 2019, but we will continue to pursue changes to the Elections Act to improve our existing democratic system.

Sincerely,

Lloyd Longfield – MP Guelph
