(MMP) Looking for a problem with Canadian politics (FPTP)

By proportion of seats in the parliament and by percentage of the popular vote. If the Bloc Quebecois had won the Conservative vote numbers they would have won nearly 200 seats in the house of commons, a huge majority.

(FPTP) Plurality, “Winner take-all” election system is not the problem, regional racist voting is.

(MMP) Proportional electing would only leave a government with more than two parties a perpetual minority and practically useless and would allow for even more division or anarchy.

This country needs a plumber and not a doctor.

The Bloc Quebecois won more seats than the NDP with only half as many votes.

The real problem is the regional and racist voting allowed in the federal election not the need for a better voter system.

Conservative 143 46.4 46.4% 5,205,334 37.6 37.6%
Green Party 0 0.0 0.0% 940,747 6.8 6.8%
Bloc Québécois 50 16.2 16.2% 1,379,565 10.0 10.0%
NDP-New Democratic Party 37 12.0 12.0% 2,517,075 18.2 18.2%

Need a Job?

October 15-08
Dear Member(s) of Parliament,
Reading this was work.
The history of Canadian voter turnout from Elections Canada. You have to read the small print at the top and bottom to get the accurate picture.
Do especially note the years 1891 to 1898, ruffly a 54% average voter turnout.
Save us the rhetoric please.
Sincerely Yours,

Does the EU have Canada’s E.I.?

October 15, 2008
Dear *, Member of Parliament for *-*, *,
Curious the prime minister should be ‘jetting off’ to Europe for trade talks with the president of France at a time in this country when the Governor General should likely be calling out Canada’s Armed Forces against the Francophone Gilles Duceppe MP and the seditious Bloc Quebecois regional, criminal, race, party, or resigning her position?
Does the E.U. have Canada’s E.I., because I really can’t imagine any trade talks that could take precedent over returning Canada’s ‘missing 54 billion dollar E.I. surplus’ or this Franco- “Quebecois”/”crises”.
Do we run off and forget the people of this country in order to sign some more useless some would even say “stupid”, Free-Trade deals, with a bunch of bankrupt European misfits?

“I dooon’t think so”.
Sincerely Yours,

“Low Voter Turnout” “58%”, update: “59.1%”

October 15, 2008
Dear Member of Parliament for * *, *
“Conservatives do better with a high voter turnout”. – the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper
I was curious about this mysterious and unexplained phenomena of “low voter turnout” in Canadian elections. I checked with the governments official statistics web page and looked for any record of voter turnouts during national elections.
Seems there is some and there really is no such “phenomena” or any “mystery” that points to any kind of “declining voter turnout” since confederation and the election of the first prime minister in 1867.
Other than what I would guess to be an expected decline due to having so many elections consecutively over such a short period of time which could likely leave some people feeling they would rather stay home, I would be one of those people but this year I forced myself.
There is some decline showing in the record of voters going to the polls but only over the last five years and that should be very obvious that this is not a trend.
We do not need this kind of rhetoric being promoted by the government on to the citizens of this country.
Canadians need to be told the truth, there is no real “decline in voter turnout” and contrary to the opinions of our governments and since the confederation of this country in 1867.
Sincerely Yours,

Update: 1891-1898 only about 54% averaged, of Canadians bothered to vote. Don’t our elected professionals have access to this kind of data, poor things, they must need another pay raise.

O look they even held a referendum in 1898 , only 44% bothered to turnout. Surely a crises in democracy must have ensued.

I’ve heard the other “leaders” in Canada’s government telling us this same rhetoric.

A Respectful Government for Canada

I beg of you to actually do your job and have the traitor Gilles Duceppe MP Leader of the Bloc Quebecois in Canada arrested for sedition by the authority granted you as representative of the crown in this country.

To allow Gilles Duceppe MP to escape this justice would expose Canada to policies that the majority of Canadians clearly do not want. They could diminish Canadian sovereignty and further undermine the supportive social programs and civil liberties that Canadians citizens have come to enjoy.

Or you should resign your office if not for ethical reasons then under threat of facing similar charges.

Gilles Duceppe MP said tonight (and this morning being the 15th) on cpac television that he had “won a majority”. He has usurped his authority as a member of parliament broken his sworn oath and should be removed from the house of commons and the parliament of Canada.

Yours for a free and democratic Canada,

P.S.Abortion doctors that “defy the lawshould go to prison with Gilles Duceppe MP and not receive the country’s highest honours.

Bye, bye, Michael Jean

GO Maroons!

TORY’S WIN BIG!

October 14, 2008
Dear *, Member of Parliament for *,
Congratulations on your win tonight.
Hope “we” don’t spend this mandate trying to please “the east” or “the Quebecois nation”.
Saw on TV some of the local debate and thought you did a good job, the Liberal was a fairly strong opponent and the NDP voters can also be strong in this area.
I may even buy a Hyundai if the U.S. doesn’t “melt down” due to a lack of North American made auto sales.
Tax cuts for the poor can be difficult when some of “the poor” are receiving seven thousand or more dollars a year in child benefits. I do not know how anyone in this country can really be “poor” or how children can be “living in poverty”, as we seem to hear so much, except for those on general welfare which are not very many at all. Natives of course do not pay taxes and should not be allowed to vote or receive tax benefits nor should be persecuted or put down.
Caledonia is not your riding but is a federal responsibility and needs to be cleaned up according to treaty rights.Be good to the Natives but not their Liberal babysitters, please.
Quebec is not a lost cause but Ontario is where any federal party has to win, unless they are the Bloc Quebecois.
Governments have spent too much time trying to “win in Quebec” and “worrying about the east”, some even seem to think that Ontario is in the east when it is really central from a political view and close enough geographically also.
Ontario has to be central to any winning campaign which I did not see in this election from any party, Jack Layton ran the best campaign at least in Ontario and I think that will show..
Down with the Official Languages Act, Atlantic Accords, “Free Trade” “Corporate Welfare”, the commercial seal hunt in Canada and any special treatment for any other “Nations” and including First Nations in this country.
Enough of the Quebecois attitude of inherited rights that do not even exist except as some Liberals let them. Conservatives should “kill” the Arts and Culture spending in this country and the damned Liberal/UN, Stephane Dion stench called the ‘Kyoto Accord’.
A larger minority is still a victory, I’m against the Mulroney Free Trade Deal and want Karl Heinz Schreiber charged criminally for bribing Mulroney and before this week is done, this a criminal matter and not for a government ‘public Inquirey’ held behind closed doors and overseen by a Judge that was appointed by Mulroney.’Not gonna happen’ and do try to get back the E.I. surplus that the previous finance minister Jim Flaherty seems can be forgotten. I must demand that there be a ‘public Inquirey’ and some “accountability” for Canada’s stolen E.I. surplus.
“Kill” Kyoto and not the dog.
‘Press your nose to the window Danny Williams your on the outside looking in.’, a quote from a blog comment I read earlier tonight that I thought worth repeating.
I just saw your numbers on the TV screen your a runaway 18000 plus to the Liberal, 11,000. You got mine too just in case, I saw the debate and thought * was going to hurt ya, or visa-versa. : l
Were not exactly un-accustomed to going “hands-on” in this town, go Maroons.
I hear that the prime minister likes to read and is interested in the history of professional Hockey, my favourite sport when I was a youth, to watch that is, but I couldn’t play very well, two left feet, Disappointing but we can’t have everything, I went to school with Dave *, my brother and his kids help on his mothers farm near *. Just between you and I, you should try to get a * jersey for the PM or maybe I can ask around and drop one off at your office if I get my hands on one.
Sincerely Yours

A “disgruntled”, “under-employed”, “poor” trucker and ex-cab driver – because I got beat up by “crack-heads” and the police charged me. Waited ten months for a court date date and the Judge threw my case out when I fired my lawyer who wanted me to plead with no witnesses in the court room. Law games, they want to play law games with peoples lives. They cost me my job and I’ll never go back if that’s how cabbies get treated by the law and their employers.
