The Liberals are trying to get Canadians to approve a constitutional conference, to be held in Toronto in 2019, as part of their bid to secure the 2019 election.
The Liberals have already announced a slate of candidates for the convention, including former provincial cabinet minister, Bob Rae, and former Toronto-area MP James Bezan, who has also run in the past.
The convention is set to take place next year.
B.C. NDP leader Andrew Weaver is also hoping for a convention.
“We want to do a constitutional, democratic convention, so we can hold a referendum on a government of national unity,” Weaver told the Vancouver Sun.
“We’ve got to get this done before the 2019 federal election.
This is really critical, and we are doing our part.”
The BC Liberals are currently riding high in opinion polls ahead of the 2019 provincial election, with polls showing the party has a strong chance of winning the province.
Despite the convention being held in the city, a majority of Canadians would rather see the province form a new federal government.
In a recent poll, 73 per cent of Canadians said they would prefer to see a new, unified federal government in place by the time of the next election.
