Modernize Niagara

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

Municipal election nominations are open , ask the candidates to support the Modernize Niagara Ideas in their platforms.

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
