Electoral Reform: the time is now!
Many feel the current elections system is deeply flawed. In the last election, Justin Trudeau committed to consultations on reforming the system, and Unifor has a strong voice in this process. A long-time activist for reform, Dennis Pilon argues that the current election system keeps political power in the hands of the few. He supports the growing struggle to reform the system so that more voices can be heard. How can unions play a role in changing the election system to increase democratic input?
