COMMUNIST – 0.034% — MARXIST-LENINIST – 0.067% — MARIJUANA – 0.249%

For those who find such things interesting, here are our current election results:

LIB 135
CON 99
BQ 54
NDP 19
IND 1

…and here is how it would look if we had proportional representation:

LIB 113
CON 91
NDP 47
BQ 39
GREEN 13

Liberals + NDP = 154 Seats.
Conservatives + Bloc = 154 Seats. (The IND candidate is a CON that was listed as IND due to a party nomination argument. He’ll be welcomed back to the fold.)

Someone’s going to have to suck some conservative dick tonight if he wants to form a government.

  1. *nod*

    that is exactly why i had to vote the way i did [ndp]…it was a strategy that thankfully seems to have worked for a lot of us….

    one day maybe i’ll be able to vote the way i wanna…but i really can’t see an anarcho-communist or even an anarcho-socialist party in the near future ;)

  2. i too voted ndp, and i’m disappointed that mazigh didn’t win the riding. not surprised, but disappointed.

    guess i’m not the only one around suffering from an election hangover. :)

  3. Voted Npd too…would have voted green but went for the one that had better chance to get something out of this. Still, this is rather sad, for, I can’t see the day where something is actually going to change here.

    The mention of an Anarcho-communist or socialist makes me smile. It’s been so long I have not heard about that. And yes indeed quite a crowd would be happy about that. But, no mather how much I like the idea, I think some people would ruin it for others, as it is the nature of a few to try to take more. But, then again, as I have never been a huge fan of the application of anachist-type of views on a large mass of people, I might just miss a few points. I still think it would be nice to leave the boundaries of this society with a rather small amount of chosen people and create one independant anarchist utopia.

  4. I didn’t think proportional representation would ever replace the current system, just supplement it …

    am I wrong?

    Who would “YOUR” MP be if it was completely proportional?

  5. I’d still have my MP, plus there’d be MPs chosen by the party based on popular vote.

    IE:

    308 MPs elected via riding (like now)
    +50 MP spots given to parties based on popular vote

  6. YAY! I understand, and we essentially agree.

    (but your listing of “how it would look if we had proportional representation” doesn’t look like that – it’s a PURE proportional answer)
