“Samara Canada believes a House of Commons that better reflects the diversity of Canadians and their experiences will generate a more resilient and responsive Parliament, and can improve Canadians' willingness to participate in all aspects of public life. Yet many groups – women among them – remain underrepresented today among Canada’s 338 Members of Parliament. MP Kennedy Stewart’s private member’s bill proposes creative new incentives for political parties to increase the number of female candidates selected in riding nominations. Samara Canada welcomes this important public discussion about creating the conditions for a diversity of Canadians, especially women, to enter politics.”
