Three-quarters of Canadians want a referendum before any change in our voting system

It's 2016. We've consulted Canadians by Twitter, says the Liberal Justice Minister. What more do you want?

A new poll conducted exclusively for Global News by Ipsos Public Affairs found 73 per cent of respondents “agree” the Liberals shouldn’t make any changes to the country’s voting system without a national referendum first. “There is a lot of public support for a [referendum], so you would have to have a pretty compelling reason not to have one,” said Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos.

But the only reason the Liberals don’t want a referendum is because they know they’d lose.
