This is a fantastic simulation of #proportionalrepresentation.
The key question is: "Now that Canadians have elected a minority govt, will the Liberals be influenced by the NDP and the Greens, who both have called for #electoralreform?"

1/ The headline inside the article is misleading, suggesting the Conservatives could have "won" the election, since every simulation here has their seat count changing hardly at all.

This vote splitting garbage has me LIVID.

I started this election season truly supporting Mr. Singh. I saw a man who was passionate, articulate, charismatic. Turns out I was conned by an opportunist put in place by the NDP. They saw those traits & exploit them to save their dying party, regardless of 0 experience../2
At 1st I thought Mr Singh was very upfront & relatable. Turns out he went to an expensive private school in the states & is currently worth over $4 million. Meanwhile, he stayed silent while Scheer was attacked for misrepresenting his socioeconomic status.

EXACTLY....

I am so sick of people saying they can't vote Liberal over electoral reform!!!

1) it could not be done unilaterally
2) NDPP & Green broke THEIR word
3) Cons stated day 1 they would not allow reform to pass

Bigger picture, folks.

NDP and Greens joined with the Conservatives in 2016 to insist that a referendum was necessary

Right from the START Cons have viewed to block legislation
#CountryOverParty #elxn43
The Conservative Party is vowing to use any means necessary, including a Senate blockade, to keep the Liberal government from forcing through electoral-reform legislation

#ElectoralReform 30 recommendations w/7 priority areas

Priority areas
1. INEC must improve logistics, operations, planning & tracking
2. Result sheets & SCR were not packed in tamper-evident envelopes as required - Amend EA /INEC procedures for transparent collation process
Priority areas #3:

Collation is marred by inconsistent numbers & lack of transparency - Amend EA for full results transparency I.e., results sheets scanned & published by the time final results are announced

Some people think #ProportionalRepresentation will result in government backroom deals - the kind we didn't vote for.

But that's no byproduct of #ProRep. I know that because we have that *now* with our #WinnerTakeAll voting system, although its mostly invisible.
I can provide a case study on the backroom deal I am *very* familiar with: the 2015 Liberal Electoral Reform promise.

I made a film to help Liberal friends get Resolution 31 (they wrote) adopted at the LPC policy Convention prior to the 2015 election.
As @BardishKW said, "In 2014 the Liberal Party voted overwhelmingly to endorse what has become our Electoral Plank."

LPC members voted *overwhelmingly* for the process.

Candidate @RajSainiMP explained how it would be done.

@mcourcel @GautamNath @Michael_TO2018 @MayorTorontoTom @jpformayor @jimruelformayor I chose YouTube & Twitter to share my Community wellness inclusion Mayoral platform because it guaranteed me audio for Community members who are Blind or have low vision and closed captioning for Community members who are Deaf or hard of hearing.

Together we succeed @mcourcel!
