Yes and because they are supposed to be representing Canada and All Canadians they should be able to be fired & be held legally responsible if at any time they don't represent all Canadians equally ...

Only for the Liberals because they have no idea how to run a country other then into the ground, and no way in Hell should Quebec-qua be able to run in Federal politics unless they have a party in every province.

If the pm is doing very well serving his/her countrymen. Why give a limit. Good governance shouldn't be stop by "politics".

@95K5YQGfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

I would say no, as my inclination is to say the voters should say how long a certain person is in office. But, at the same time there are some really dangerous people who could be in power for a long time (ex. Donald Trump like-politicians) if we don't have term limits, so I would say that we should be open to it as a form of keeping bad people out of office who wish to do ill, but it also keeps good people from being able to do more with their leadership as well.

I would personally say no, but if it were to happen I wouldn't be against it as there are some career politicians who do last very long as representatives.

Psychology, yes. But it would be an exception if they lived as a minimum wage citizen

No, term limits violate democratic rights, if someone is popular and supported, let them run as long as they are able.

No, the province should set term limits to consecutive terms of their own MPs.

@8TX5JVBfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, there should be a limit of 2 - 4 terms, but voters should still be allowed to vote each term

@8TW3ML2from Ontario  answered…1yr

How could this even be a question for citizens to answer? We’re all different, definitely not “ voters should decide” .. we get the chance to vote. Imagine how bad that could get ..

@8RWBJNQfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

Their should be no official term limit, but a their should be an unofficial regulation that if they serve longer then 3 or 4 terms and their is a region with significant issues, then a national vote would happen. Using a direct vote, where their is no inbetweener.

It's up to the candidate how long they want to Prime Minister for.

@firozsasifrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

No limit if PM is doing a good work. The 5 year term should be increased to ten years.

@8QS36MFfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

Yes; under the current first past the post system, Ontario and Quebec generally elect the PM. If changed to proportional system, let the people decide.
