A healthy democracy requires that Governments listen to citizens in order to make better decisions. This initiative aims to hear from as many Canadians as possible in a national conversation on electoral reform.

Our approach will collect our voices in a real-time, coherent and open ended way while allowing you to agree/disagree or pass on what others have already said. We hope to provide a greater ability to listen to the diversity of opinions across the country while avoiding the echo chambers of typical social media engagement.

The goal of this parallel public consultation process is to have a large-scale conversation where participants can listen, share and learn from others’ viewpoints. We hope the debate evolves in such a way such that consensus statements allow this conversation to move forward in a productive and actionable way.

Basically, we’d like to build consensus through conversation rather than continue to yell at each other from across the table.
