A great discussion on the NDP's March 3 House of Commons motion was underway, until people starting rehashing BC-STV for the 117th time. (Continuing the last thread: Still believe the NDP doesn't support electoral reform?)
So let's continue. On March 3 the House of Commons debated the NDP motion on proportional representation (and Senate abolition), and the Bloc voted for it.
The motion called for the House to appoint a Special Committee for Democratic Improvement, whose mandate is to engage with Canadians, and make recommendations to the House, on how best to achieve a House of Commons that more accurately reflects the votes of Canadians by combining direct election by electoral district and proportional representation. (It also, unfortunately, called for a referendum on abolishing the Senate, an issue worth debating, but giving the Liberals an easy reason to vote against the motion.) The NDP's call for a mixed member system has been party policy since 2003.
The 13 NDP MPs' statements on proportional representation are worth reading, but not surprising, except to those who thought only Jack Layton was keen on PR.
More surprising is what the Bloc and the Liberals said.
