Petition to the House of Commons: Electronic Petitions

Whereas: 


*Democratic participation across Canada is at an all time low
*Petitioning has been a central part of parliamentary practice for centuries
*Modern technology now provides an opportunity to enhance this tradition in a way that pulls more citizens into the political process 

We, the undersigned, call upon the House of Commons to support M-428, Member of Parliament Kennedy Stewart’s motion instructing the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs to recommend changes to the Standing Orders and other conventions governing petitions so as to establish an electronic petitioning system in Canada.
