More power needed for the people
On Dec. 3, Michael Chong, a backbench Conservative MP, introduced a private member's bill in Parliament to strengthen Canada's democratic institutions by restoring the role of elected members of Parliament in the House of Commons.
The reform bill proposes to restore local control over party nominations, strengthen caucus as a decision-making body and reinforce the accountability of party leaders to caucuses.
These vital democratic reforms are being supported by a wide range of principled Conservative, NDP, Liberal, and Green MPs.
As one of Vancouver Island North John Duncan's constituents, I urge him to work with other MPs to support this important bill that would put more power back into the hands of ordinary Canadians and the MPs who represent us.
