Electoral reform, Opposition motions, Referenda

Référendums, Réforme électorale,

Mr. Speaker, the word “process” is the key word here.

We are not at that point in the process. The point in the process right now is to study all of our options, to study every option. It is not only about voting. It is also about whether we bring in mandatory voting. I am hoping that we look at election financing reform, and that is my personal opinion. There are lots of different sides to this.

To say what we are going to do at the end of it when we are not at the beginning of it is a bit premature. I would like to study this properly and thoroughly and decide at that point the best course forward. That is what I am looking forward to.

Monsieur le Président, le mot « processus » est le mot clé ici.

Nous ne sommes pas rendus là dans le processus. Nous en sommes actuellement à étudier toutes nos options; chacune d'entre elles. Il n'est pas seulement question de vote. Il est également question de déterminer si nous devons instaurer le vote obligatoire. Personnellement, j'espère que nous examinerons une réforme du financement électoral. Il y a beaucoup d'opinions différentes à ce sujet.

Il est quelque peu prématuré de nous prononcer sur ce que nous ferons à la fin du processus alors que nous ne l'avons même pas amorcé. J'aimerais étudier cela adéquatement et rigoureusement et décider alors de la meilleure chose à faire. Voilà ce que j'envisage.
