Canada was made for the Internet
Our system was created with the apparent intention that everyone in the country would join a party. This is the only way that the people get a chance to elect a leader for the country. Until now, it has been impractical for people to travel to participate in these conventions so they tuned out and the system became dominated by political junkies. Now we can participate online. People complain that there is no one to vote for. If everyone were members of the party that most suited them, then we would have a much broader and more responsive system.
