Would a favourable decision mean electoral reform in time for the next (2019) federal election?


It is highly unlikely a final decision would be reached by that point in time. The court case itself will take 2 - 4 years to reach the Supreme Court. If the court does rule in favour of our case, they will likely set a timeline for the government to legislate a new voting system that does not contravene the charter. A best-case scenario would likely result in a new voting system in place for the election following the expected 2019 election.

How you can help

The main way you can help is to support the case financially. We need to raise another $35,000 to prepare for the next stage of the case - cross examination. You can support the case for as little as a dollar a month.

What to expect

- Summer to Fall 2021 - preparing for cross-examination and preparing response affidavits - $35,000 fundraising goal

- Fall 2021 to Winter 2022 - draft factum - $30,000 fundraising goal

- Winter 2022 - prepare and present oral arguments - $25,000 fundraising goal

- At each step, we set a goal based on our estimate of the costs, and ask supporters to contribute to help us reach that goal, and to ensure the case can continue to move forward.
