Today our Liberal Government released a White Paper on Democratic Renewal, fulfilling our commitment outlined in the Speech from the Throne. As mentioned at the recent provincial executive meeting, this Paper will engage Islanders in a historic renewal of our democratic institutions. As members of the Liberal Party, each of you has played an important role in our democracy and I encourage each of you to share your views on the White Paper.
Throughout our history, Prince Edward Island has benefited from democratic renewal and evolution. With two decades having passed since the electoral reform of 1994 and with a legal requirement that electoral boundaries be redrawn before the next provincial election, it is timely for Islanders to work together to put Prince Edward Island on the map for our democratic processes and rates of participation.
Islanders will have the opportunity to give their input and ultimately participate in a plebiscite prior to any changes. I encourage each of you to participate.
