63. Canada’s Parliamentary and Electoral System
BE IT RESOLVED:
That the Liberal Party of Canada:
Commit to a meaningful study and consultation on:
- Parliamentary and Senate reform that includes mandatory audits;
- disclosure of expenses;
- the restoration of previous Prime Minister Office accountability regulations;
- an accountable process for the appointments of Senators.
Canada and the world has changed significantly since it became a nation and instituted a parliamentary process based on the British model. Canadians are questioning whether the current parliamentary and electoral system is appropriate for Canada in the 21st century. Many Canadians have voiced the need for a Parliamentary process that is more transparent to ensure that the democratic will of Canadians is being clearly enacted in an ethical and accountable manner.
