|Trudeau: Ideology over science|
Here's a summary of how the science actually is the opposite of Trudeau's personal ideology:
“That’s not just theory,” adds Wayne Smith, FVC Executive director. “Most developed countries have used proportional voting systems for most of the last century, so we can see how they work in the real world. Consensus democracies tend to have higher levels of voter satisfaction and higher voter turnout. They elect more women and minorities, have better social programs, and are at least as well run as we are in terms of inflation and unemployment.”
If Trudeau really wants to improve Canada, engage more people in politics, and introduce a newer type of politics in Canada, he should be examining the scientific facts underlining the issue of proportional representation, and not just going with his personal ideology.
We've had enough of ideology trumping science under Stephen Harper.
