Force an MP to Table a Private Member's Bill that was Petitioned by Voters in His Riding

Democracy is a system 'of the people, for the people and by the people'. If people garnered enough signatures (in an MP's riding) on a draft proposal, then the MP must table that proposal (in the correct format) for a vote in parliament. Priority must be given to such voter-developed proposals, so that they are dealt with ahead of MP-developed private member's bills.

    Very cool idea. I have no notion of how often this would happen, but it sounds as if voters were to put forward enough signatures (or whatever constitutes enough weight to generate a proposal) that the MP could ignore it — they should be made to work with it somehow.
