Whether it’s the size of our country or the design of our political system, an unfortunate feature of Canadian federalism is that much of the important work…
Although I am a registered Liberal, I believe having a CPC that is balanced and closer to the centre, instead of holding hands with the PPC, is important for democracy. One-party systems rarely turn out for the best, even if intentions are good initially, and I hope that the CPC can come out of this closer to the Progressive Conservatives than to the PPC.^
not to say that erin o'toole was the right person to lead the conservative party - and certainly based on today's actions by the party's elected mp's the party no longer felt he was the right person - but if the conservative party can't find its way back to embracing the "progressive" elements that were once a proud equal mainstay of the party, they will leave themselves resigned to fighting it out with bernier's ppc to represent the country's right-wing populist fringe elements and never again form government. and from my perspective both the party and the country will be the worse for their making that choice.

I posted in the Alberta politics thread, but this is more appropriate here.Liberal and NDP commit to maintain the at least the current number (and an undefined constant number ensuring over representation) of seats for Quebec in the House of Commons despite the requirement to reduce it by one according to the Electoral Commission … meaning Quebec residents will have a preferred status in Canada while residents in all other Provinces and Territorys will have proportionally less representation and our votes are worth less. The language used is this “We commit to ensuring that Quebec’s number of seats in the House of Commons remains constant”. The last line in the webpage before asking for donations. Screw the Liberals and NDP for not ensuring equitable representation based on population.
