Who is responsible for this deficit in democracy

The moderator on CPAc says it is just too too bad if there is such a low vote turn out in Canada. That is the personal choice of Canadians and no one can do anything about it. It seems to me a government concerned with the Canadian people and not its own power would make it a goal to do increase voter turn out. Governments do attempt to do this in Europe. But a government concerned with its own power will not. Countries with proportional representation do have higher turn outs. The moderator on CPAC said that he guessed the matter was off the table for the next four years. To heck with what the people might want I guess.
