ELECTION-DYSFUNCTION?

Election reform advocates say millions of votes were lost in the recent federal election because the voting system is unfair.
Our electoral system is dysfunctional. When a 850,000 votes elects 27 Conservatives MPs in Alberta and a million votes across Canada doesn't elect a single Green the system needs to be changed. 58% of Canadians believe we should have at least one Green in the House of Commons.

The NDP won 1,000,000 votes more than the Bloc but has 13 fewer seats.

And it's not just the Greens or NDP that are penalized by this system the biggest disandvantaged are the quarter million Conservative voters in Toronto who didn't elect a single MP and the quarter million Conservative voters in Montreal who didn't elect a single MP -- so the two largest cities in Canada go completely unrepresented in the Government.
