Liberal members can go to the convention website at http://convention.liberal.ca/ and vote on what issues they want to see presented. I got the e-mail and was one of the first to vote on the issues, so I've been tracking which resolutions have been leading for some time.
Currently in #3, is the "Comprehensive Plan for Post-Secondary Education" brought forward by Alberta and BC. It calls for the Liberals to "complete with the instatement of upfront grants and a national stipend program aimed at supporting the education of deserving students" and "offer current and future students opportunities to access education at any point in their career, including trades; and a work forgiveness program which would allow students to pay off their loans in exchange for work in designated communities, industries, and public initiatives."
Currently in #2 is the "Electoral Reform" brought forward by Ontario. It calls for "the current “first past the post” system, at the Electoral District level, be replaced by a Preferential Voting system, such that the Member of Parliament be selected by 50% plus 1 of the voters in each Electoral District;" and "the current Elections Canada formula for financial support to political parties be maintained based on the first choice cast on a ballot."
Related, is the #1 issue, which is also my #1 issue, "Preferential Balloting System", brought forward by Saskatchewan. It calls for the Liberals to "implement a preferential ballot for all future national elections."
#'s 2 and 1 are similar enough to end up getting merged at some point, and by leading, will certainly go to the convention. Not only that but it may well pass. A Preferential Ballot might help us in those close ridings, as we would be a popular #2 option. Perhaps more importantly is the damage this would do to the Bloc Quebecois. Should this become the law of the land, we will never again see a 54 seat Bloc.
