- NDP has 16% popular vote but only 24 (7%) seats.
-Bloc has less than half that in votes but 32 seats.
- Libs won 36 more seats with less votes than the conservatives.
- Greens have 6.5% of vote but <1% seats.

Conclusion: Time for electoral reform.

But, the conservatives gained the majority of their votes in Alberta and Saskatchewan AND they gained all but one seat in Alberta - we need electoral reform but NOT because two provinces voted almost exclusively blue.
First past the post absolutely sucks and we need something better. But, I don't know what it should be. I know Trudeau stopped the reform last election because of two reasons: one - he didn't want to go to the public on it and two: the one that was recommended was not what he/they wanted (it was also the one that BC has shot down multiple times).

1. If Liberals had voted strategically in 2011 and 2018 the NDP would've stopped Harper and Ford. They refused to do so.

2. Maybe you shouldn't have broken your promise on electoral reform then. #cdnpoli #elxn43

Family of four under a Scheer govt?

You’ll lose $5729.32 of govt services you’re currently receiving.

Much of that will go to the wealthiest in the form of tax breaks.

That’s what “getting you ahead” looks like.

Vote accordingly.

1/8 For those saying they need to "strategically vote Liberal" to keep Scheer out: here are at least 75 ridings where you should strategic vote NDP, based on results in the past 8 elections, incumbents, returning MPs, etc.

Before heading to the #ClimateStrikeCanada in Victoria, I’m in Ladysmith to announce our bold new action to defend our air, land & water.

We'll reject Trudeau’s plan to increase oil tanker traffic by 700% & instead create a $40 million Coastal Protection Fund. #elxn43

Remember when Doug Ford said no one will lose their jobs?
Remember when Jason Kenney said Grassroots Guaranteed?
Don’t trust conservative promises they will gut the crap out of public services in order to push for private...
