BC-STV, Single Transferable Vote

If it is impossible to change our federal political system of Per Capita colonialism via the national poll itical PROXY parties of the majority because of the demographics of our federation maybe the provinces can lead the way to changing it by leading by example and not upholding the Status Quo.

It could be described as minority rights electoral system that gives a voice and rights to the minority voters ideals in a province.

Where as our current First Past the Post winner takes all losers have no voice or representation discriminates against any minority ideals voters.

Tyranny of the majority would be the academic term used to describe our flawed FPP electoral system.

STV was recommended by a Citizens assembly with no partisan affiliation or self serving agendas other than to recommend what was the best electoral system for it's citizens.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
(Federal politics)
courage to change the things I can;
(Provincial Politics)
and wisdom to know the difference.

Fee Wheeling at last

Williams on CTV's power play does about the best job I've heard or read yet on how this came about and what it means.

Newfoundland and Labrador

I just left this comment at CBC the CURRENT on an interview that was done with Senator George Baker, and former premiers Tobin and Peckford on NL's 60 years in confederation.


I enjoyed very much your show with Senator George Baker, former premiers Tobin and Peckford on NL's place in confederation 60 years on.

It was nice to hear an informed debate which didn't attack the messenger for delivering a message no one wants to hear. Myself included, that my country is systemically flawed and all of the national PROXY parties practise DEMOCRATIC DISCRIMINATION AGAINST MY HOME PROVINCE for partisan gain.

I ran as a NL-FIRST candidate in the last federal election because I wanted to give the people of NL a real choice from all of the national PROXY parties of the Upper/Lower canada majority tyranny, Mouseland.

No federal party can call a referendum, whether they be national in scope or nationalist.

You see it isn't the national PROXY parties we need to change it is our systemically flawed political system.

That is what the Meechlake and Charlottetown accords were about but because the systemically flawed political system works for the two principals ON/QU via their majority status of 66% of the population they don't want it to change and will never support any national party that endeavours to change it.

That is why Mr Harper nor any national political party will ever get a majority as long as he promotes a triple E senate.

Hope springs eternal in a democracy, unfortunately for NL with no equality and only per capita representation it is eternally hopeless.

The root cause of NL's woes in confederation is it's lack of equality all of the problems are only the symptoms.
