“This cynical decision is designed to let the Liberals keep power for longer. But Justin Trudeau is about to learn that when you break people’s faith, you will reap what you sow.”
A Message from Canada’s Green Party Leader Elizabeth May
Posted February 1st, 2017 on Niagara At Large
I feel more deeply shocked today by this government’s actions than any other time in my adult life.
Thousands upon thousands of Canadians put faith in this Prime Minister’s direct promise that 2015 would be the last election under first-past-the-post. He has broken that promise.
I never expected anything other than appalling decisions from Stephen Harper. But when you believe in someone and they let you down, that is much harder.
This cynical decision is designed to let the Liberals keep power for longer.
But Justin Trudeau is about to learn that when you break people’s faith, you will reap what you sow.
Despite spending millions of dollars on the issue, when our feminist PM didn’t hear the answer he wanted, he threw his two young women ministers under the bus, and callously broke his word.
This betrayal is one felt by all voters, volunteers, and activists who worked diligently to make this country’s democracy fairer and stronger through meaningful electoral reform. Demand that the Prime Minister reverse this terrible decision, and live up to his promise to Canadians.
Thank you for your continued support. Canada needs it.
Elizabeth May, Leader, Green Party of Canada
