We must demand electoral reform; Toronto Star

People seem to get tired of a PM who doesn't listen to the people of the land. Richard Gere told everyone at the AIDS conference:

"If ( Stephen Harper) doesn't change, don't re-elect him"

Stuart Rogers from Toronto recognizes the problem with this statement; -- we DIDN't elect Harper, the electoral system did.
It's not Harper we have to change, it's our outmoded, perverse electoral system that handed power to a party that almost 65 per cent of voters "opposed." Wake up, Canada! If you don't want your country represented — and embarrassed — by people you didn't vote for, you must demand electoral reform. Write your MP, join Fair Vote Canada, raise your voice. We must replace this crazy system that consistently turns our democratic will on its head.
