It is bigoted to assume an individual will have different opinions based on skin colour or genitalia. It promotes segregation and should not be tolerated. Western countries are a melting pot and we should be proud of it.

No, I think that this could lead to breakdowns of our efficient democratic system, as in PR the government would have to cater to those within fringe movements, such as the People's Party of Canada, as well as smaller parties in order to gain a majority, and this could create a lot of deadlock and erode people's trust within the constitutional democratic system here in Canada, which has also happened within European democracies such as Germany to some extent, and republics such as the United States of America, as congress is almost always in a deadlock (with some rare exceptions.)

There should be no political parties that necessitate proportionality

No, switch to a combination of instant runoff and approval system

@8ZX5HSVLiberalfrom Alberta  answered…10mos

Yes, so long as it is kept democratic and attempts at gerrymandering and corruption are prohibited.

@8ZV7WDZfrom Quebec  answered…11mos

No, switch to a sortition system for choosing political officials and abolish elections altogether

@8ZT5SNWfrom Ontario  answered…11mos

There are many voting issues that need to be addressed, not just the current system

No, this could make our government's ability of good governance/efficiency to be compromised, as the government is made up of a broad coalition of different views. I get why people think this is a good idea, as it could preserve a lot of really good ideas that in a FPTP system could be at more risk of being fully eliminated/scratched from budgets, but it could make people lose faith in an already good system that works, and that's why I'm against it.

I would prefer a system such as ranked balloting, in which individual people rank their preference in terms of candidates, because most people, when going to the polls, have an idea of at least two or three people they're going to vote for/allows candidates to win based on broad support, rather than pandering to their voter base only.

I don’t really know the other options but I don’t really like the current situation.
