(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%

Elizabeth May be a real Hoser

Check out the Bourque News, looks like Elizabeth May was ‘in the sack’ with Stephane Dion for a senate seat/cabinet post.

Updated

That’s an ugly picture.

Wouldn’t that be “bribery”?

May’s confusing us, Green candidate says

Canada’s last foreign-born Prime Minister, (1894-1896)

Rt Hon Sir Mackenzie Bowell, 1894-96 (b at Rickinghall, Eng 27 Dec 1823)

I may not specifically question Elizabeth May‘s citizenship or her loyalty to this country but she is still a foreigner to me.

Dear *. *,

I can assure that you that Ms. May’s commitment and loyalty to Canada is second to none. Elizabeth was born in Hartford Connecticut in 1954 of a British father and American mother. The whole family moved to Canada when Elizabeth was a teenager in 1973. Her parents came as landed immigrants and invested their life savings in opening tourism business on the Cabot Trail. She became a Canadian citizen in 1978.

Thanks very much for your email and let us know if you have any more questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Andrew *
