The danger we are running into now is that essentially two provinces are deciding the political fate of the country. And this where I am envious of the US Electoral College as it seem to try to ensure that regions (concerns) cannot simply ignore others (concerns) because of population size and willful ignorance. This is my elementary understanding, and I stand to be corrected.
This country is in dire need of electoral reform or at a minimum a redistribution of the seats. Ont and Que should be power houses but should not be allowed to hold the balance of power. It needs to be distributed equally to ensure all regions are relevant and represented. The Bloq earned only 1.3 million votes vs the NDP 2.9 million and still got more seats. This a gross misjustice in our electoral system; and its a glowing example of how one region is allowed to dominate others.
The Bloc only ran 78 candidates while the NDP ran 338. Bloc votes are nearly twice as efficient.
The Bloc literally embody the spirit of what our Parliament was designed for. They are a regional party with regional issues and play to that strength.
It's not 1 election, it's 338 elections.
