Forms of PR require the same amending formula. And a PR government will have the same restrictions on Senate reform. It isn't a magic wand.

Any Senate reform is only possible if you get the approval of 7 of 10 provinces containing over 50% of the population of Canada, plus the approval of the House of Commons AND the Senate itself.

Hey, vote for whoever you like. It's a free country (unless Scheer gets elected, anyway).

I's say tail wagging the dog, except that now conjures up Scheer's old anti- marriage equality speech.

Not sure what rock you've been under, by the LPC released released its costed 2019 platform on Sep 29, 2019. As for Ontario jobs, I guess those three signs at the US border are finally working.

Oddly, that article says Singh suggests he will roll over on the TMP for the right political price.
