As long as we will keep our FPTP system a CPC majority will always be a possibility. The CPC will only lose all hopes of a majority the day we get

Or the NDP could stop supporting the fossil fuels industry and rebrand as eco-socialists and try to convince Green voters to vote for them instead, you know like you’re supposed to do in a real democracy.

To all the whiny liberals ... I don’t elect an MP or a PM, I cast one ballot for a representative. But since it’s winner take all, the winner can not represent the entire group of voters. That means most don’t have representation or a voice in government.

. , interesting article but your author conflates winner-take-all ranked-choice-voting with . The important difference is electing one winner vs a team of winners.

All votes count. Just some don’t count towards anything. if the representation doesn’t reflect the public that votes then it actually isn’t representative of anything.

62% of Canadians in 2015 voted for parties promising electoral reform. Majority of the Cdns want it any poll will confirm it. The only reason we don’t have is because of Liberal parties all over the country choosing to keep all the power because they don’t want to share.

Canadians feel ignored because they don’t get the government they voted for. Why isn’t one of those priorities?

Proportional representation would have made a big difference at both provincial and federal levels.

What an absolute joke our voting system is. Parties picking and choosing where they stand, leaders of parties not standing at all, people not able to vote for who they want for fear of getting someone they don’t like!

Those are all valid concerns. They're also separate from the specific concern of centralization, which is mainly about statewide single-winner elections under RCV1/IRV rather than any version such as RCV5/STV.
