On September 30th I introduced my Private Members Bill, The Referendum Act, which will allow citizens to trigger a Referendum on public policies via petition.
Referendums are a great compliment to our democracy, however they are called at the behest of the government. This is an issue when majority governments are relentlessly pushing their agenda through the Legislature, such as the fire sale of Hydro One. This bill would give citizens the ability to trigger referendums that the government would then be forced to act on, which would empower our citizens and further strengthen our democracy
