LILLEY: MPs across the country vote to maintain an unfair electoral system

Toronto Sun: 'Faced with a proposal to make the system a bit fairer when it comes to allocating the number of MPs per province, the majority said Quebec should have more say than Ontario, Alberta or British Columbia.


'Last week, the Commons voted in favour of a Bloc Quebecois motion which rejected the proposal that Quebec lose a single seat in the House when Elections Canada redistributes seats based on population. The motion also said that any proposal that would “reduce Quebec’s political weight in the House of Commons” be rejected.


'It also called for the formula for distributing seats based on population be amended to protect Quebec.


'This motion, which says some provinces are more equal than others, passed 261 in favour and 66 against. The only opposition came from 65 Conservative MPs who voted against the motion along with a single Liberal from Ontario, John McKay.'


We should have let Quebec separate. (I suppose we still can...) Without subsidies and constant bailouts from Ontario and Western Canada, it would have become a failed ethno-state overnight.
