  1. Useless to translate the number of seats for each party if instead of FPTP there had been a PR electoral-system as people's voting behaviour would be totally different. I guess that even in Canada the Greens would get something like 10% if every vote mattered.
  2. They still lost the popular vote. In other words only the electoral system saved them.
  3. Doesn't this mean that there's almost certainly going to be another election a lot sooner than in 4 years time?
  4. Sounds like inferiority-complex being next door to a mightier neighbour. Besides, Canada isn't even a small country populationwise. It is a mid-rank country. Small countries are the ones below 10 million people. Ontario alone has more than that.
  5. Is it possible or even likely that the result is like it was last time that Trudeau wins even though his party lags behind in overall votes across the country? In other words, the electoral system saves him? If it happens again wouldn't that push forward the urgency to move to PR electoral system?
  6. Canada just isn't an important enough country. Only slightly more important than a country like Finland.
  7. Why don't you give PR a try? If it doesn't suit your political culture then scrap it and come back to FPTP. However, unless you try you'll never know.
  8. There are people who say the coronavirus is a load of bullshit and all restrictions should be lifted and there are people who think that everything should be closed because of the virus and people should be locked in their homes and the army on tbe streets to make sure that people stay in their homes. The clever policy is somewhere between those two approaches.
  9. Nobody outside of Canada has heard of the other guy opposed to Trudeau but if he loses he surely must be unelectable.
  10. Trudeau is the best internationally known Canadian PM for a long time. Outside of Canada it is not considered a sign of poor general knowledge not to know who the PM of Canada is but everybody knows Justin Trudeau. If that other guy wins the election he will be almost completely unknown outside Canada. Having said all this, Trudeau has become a bit of an embarassment for Canada. Did you see the clip where he called recession shecession? It meant something like that the difficult economic times have been harsher for women than men. Of course a lot of people didn't understand what that was all about. It was shetarded for sure.
  11. If he had kept his promise of introducing a PR voting system he would already have lost last election when losing the overall popular vote.
  12. Even the American taxpayer's pocket isn't bottomless and they just cant afford to keep this futile war going on. It was always clear that as soon as the Americans leave the puppet-government would fall.
  13. So much for the fixed-term parliaments then? I wonder has the news of Canadian elections not crossed the threshold of international news or is it just me not having paid attention but I learned of this election only by seeing the thread-title on this forum. Probably the latter.
  14. The point I was trying to make that we in the western world have the privilege to be concerned about those issues I mentioned. Just imagine there was some economic disaster which brought our living standards to the level of Afghanistan. Would we still be concerned about the LGTB-rights? Would we even need Taliban to not to give a shit about it? I don't think so.
  15. I wonder when Taliban takes over what will their view be on issues such as the trans-law, the LGTB-issues in general or ambitions on combatting the climate change. I wonder are the pride-marches still going to go ahead.
