The Canadian Electoral Alliance was formed in October 2011. We encourage cross-party cooperation for the 2015 election, and enactment of proportional representation at the earliest possible after that. We promote proportional representation as the best way to achieve serious attention to climate change and other social justice issues supported by the broad mass (60%) of Canadian voters.
A number of groups have been forming across Canada, in response to the fact that only 40% of those who voted last spring (2011) elected a majority government. Some groups are focusing on electoral reform, some on cross-party cooperation, some on planning specifically for the 2015 election, while others see these strategies as means to the end of affecting government policies on environmental responsibility, social justice, arts and culture, and more.
