Currently, Canada's electoral system is based on a "first past the post" system. The candidate with the most votes in a riding wins a seat in the House of Commons and represents that riding as its Member of Parliament. The Governor General asks the Members of Parliament to form a government, which is normally the party whose candidates have won the most seats; that party's leader generally becomes Prime Minister. An absolute majority of the electorate is not needed, and is rarely achieved. As a result, power has been held by either of two parties for most of Canada's history. The party whose candidates win the second largest number of seats becomes the Official Opposition.
Switch to MMP (Mixed Member Proportional) having two votes; first vote to vote for an mp and second for a political party. My idea: 60% of MPs elected by fptp and 40% elected by PR so that minor parties can be elected
They should all be fired. Get some kids in there. 5-10+ who’s passed university. In their late 20-30’s. No more old people. Old ways are finished. There needs to be youth in that House of Commons! Choose me! They need a young head.
I think it should be based on purely policies like this quiz, where you can't see which party you're voting for. And then whoever gets the most votes in an area gains a seat in Parliament, eventually forming a government but perhaps more parties have to work together as a coalition government and work together better.
