Modernize Niagara

Bringing electoral reform to the citizens of Niagara - Durham did it, so can we!

Now that councillors and mayors have been elected, ask the candidates for their positions on modernizing Niagara.

We have been talking about it for years, it is time to make electing a Regional Chair happen. Make your voice known, talk to your councillors, complete our quick form, help make a difference in Niagara. You have the voice to do so! 

At the same time, we are advocating for the Double Direct Model whereby 6 of 12 City councillors will serve as both a Regional and City Councillor; Double Direct
