The Liberals have come out with their long-awaited plan to “reform” democracy, and it’s not much of a plan. First, they’re going to strike a committee to “consult.”
They say “consult” now, but don’t expect a referendum on the question.
According to Democratic Institutions Minister Maryam Monsef, raising the referendum question would be putting the “cart before the horse,” because right now the government claims they want to hear a broad range of perspectives from a broad range of Canadians. She says she'sparticularly interested in hearing from Canadians who don’t engage in the democratic process.
Watch my video as I explain who the Liberals plan to put on the committee and what this committee will do.
The Minister also says that it’s time to recognize that “the face of Canada has changed.”
If that’s true, I’d guess that Trudeau couldn’t be happier about it since he’s shown us time and again that like his father before him, Trudeau doesn’t really like our British heritage of which the Westminster system is the last vestige the Liberals would like to change.
But I don’t believe they’re right about what Canadians want since they got it wrong on the referendum question.
Remember, our poll found that a majority across the country and across party lines said they didn’t want a change without a referendum.
