Here’s how Trudeau’s election reforms would hand your voting power to party bosses

Justin Trudeau has announced his plan to abolish Canada’s first-past-the-post election system.

    Strange how there was nothing wrong with Canada’s electoral system when the Liberal Party was in power year after year.

    • Gee;)

      Been that way for years, you almost never hear any complaints about the FPPT system unless it’s a conservative government that wins.

    Whenever I don’t feel like going to the polls because I don’t like the choices on offer, I remember my mother telling me as a child — if you don’t exercise your right to vote, one day it will be taken away from you. It looks as if that unthinkable time just might be upon us.

    • Yup Junior is an Ass, trust me he didn’t think this idiocy up, his advisers did. Fear them not the Airhead.

        Next time you see Turdo la doo breathily opinning on some topic
        Entertain yourself with the image of Gerry butts manipulating him like a howdy doody puppet with a fist and forearm deeply Imbedded where the sun don,t shine.
        Given this I can no longer take any of the dauphin”s utterances seriously and it would appear a growing number agree.

          I always watch Trudeau.
          It gives me my Two Minutes Hate.

    This was debated at length here in BC some years ago,it looked good at first but the power it gave to party hacks and their list of supplicants was the deal killer
    Of course turdo la doo likes it,it gives party power brokers unlimited power to parachute in faithful retainers

  • He can get rid of the first-past-the-post system AFTER an IQ test eliminates many of his voters.

    That’s making things count.

    Proportional representation historically and invariably benefits leftism. “It’s Free” resonates with the LIV masses more than “socialism = bankrupcy” …

    Opening 25 seconds: “…we are committed to serious in depth consultation with Canadians…”

    Reminds me of those Liberal consultations with Canadians about converting to metric.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Those Liberal consultations are usually stage managed to deny others expressing an opposite or alternative viewpoint.
      And they amount to a fuck you, we’re going to do what we want to do, anyway.
      At least Conservatives will tell you fuck you, up front.
      I admire that.

      I would like to see three, or frankly even one, example of a government consultation process that lead to the government implementing something other than what they were going to do in the first place, other than some minor tinkering. And that goes for all parties.
