In this survey there were an inordinate number of multiple votes with a comment that indicated anger and/or frustration.  We counted only one vote whether No or Yes. 

 Multiple voting .... hmmmm.  You can express your opinion easily in the comments without trying to influence the vote one way or another.  Most people just vote and don't comment.

Electoral reform is long overdue. Too many times, just the population around the Toronto area seems to have a voice. For those of us that live in Saugeen Shores (and other smaller communities), electoral reform is needed so that our voice will be heard better.

What is the problem with what we have right now? We should only have elected MP's in the House of Commons, not someone that the party thinks should be in there because they received a certain percentage of the vote. I thought that was the problem everyone has with the Senate. More Mike Duffys' are all we need.

There are far too many aspects to this question to answer such a simplistic question!!!

Our system has served us well for a very long time. Best country in the world to live in as far as I'm concerned.

No referendum required.

The Liberals and the Tories are both against it. They both figure that the existing 'first past the post' is better for them

there are too many problems with this issue and the minorities wishes are being forced through

Time to stop electing people and get out of having a government at all.
 ______________________________
The current system has worked for 150 years and no one complained about it until "Pretty Boy" came along. If it ain't broke don't fix it!

We elected the government to make the decision, we do not need a Reforandim as well.

This current system has been good enough for 149 years.....why change now because Justin wants us to look more like the USA?
_______________________________
I think a Ranked Ballot system is overdue as opposed to the FPTP (first past the post) system,
