Members of Lead Now in Pointe Claire delivered a copy of the electoral platform to the Liberal MP Francis Scarpaleggia’s office.

Barbara Dalziel, a spokesperson for Lead Now, said she hasn’t forgotten about the campaign promises.

“We’re concerned that the Liberal government made a promise to review the electoral system and reform it,” said Dalziel. “Now there are some signs that they are backing down from that promise so Lead Now members are approaching MPs all over Canada today to simply ask if they intend to make good on those promises.”

Delivering the electoral platform is a symbolic reminder of the campaign promises the Liberal Party was elected for, she explained.

So far, the Liberals have already delivered a report and have launched a online survey on the subject, but there is no end in sight for when any changes will be implemented, if at all.
