The Plan

Our goals in launching a Charter challenge are to have the court:

1. Rule that our current voting system contravenes the Charter

2. Order the government to adopt a voting system that complies with the Charter

A Charter challenge has four main steps:

1. Preparing the initial filing

2. The first hearing

3. The first appeal

4. A final appeal to the Supreme Court

Before we launch, we need to have pledges up front to cover $260,000 for the hearings, plus a guarantee of $100,000 to indemnify our plaintiffs ($360,000 total).
