Four key steps were taken toward electoral reform in 2016. A multi-partisan committee of MPs worked together to submit a majority report recommending proportional representation. A new alliance of 62 groups called Every Voter Counts was formed to advocate for equal and effective votes. Prince Edward Island rejected the majoritarian options on the ballot in a plebiscite and a majority voted for a mixed-member proportional voting system. Finally, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reasserted his promise to change the voting system and confirmed he will introduce legislation in May 2017.
