Ujjal Dosanjh, un ancien député libéral, s’est prononcé en faveur d’un référendum sur la réforme électorale:

Any change to the electoral system can’t be a partisan endeavour. It has to be a nation-building project. If the Trudeau government wants to remain true to its commitment to democratic electoral reform it has only two options. Either it must seek and find interparty agreement on the proposed changes and approve them with a unanimous or near unanimous vote in the House of Commons. Or it must place the proposed changes before the people in a nationwide referendum.
