"If Canada had proportional representation like in many EU countries then yes they would have the right, but Canada has an outdated system that doesn't allow the most popular party to rule properly."

No because the conservatives did not win with a majority.... Having only 30 something percent support means that the majority of canadians do not support the conservatives —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:23, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

They should have far less right to impress their ideologies upon science, than upon religion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:29, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

PR won't help[edit]

Proportional Representation won't solve the problems with representation. The power will remain with the most populated provinces (ie Quebec and Ontario), while the Western and Maritime provinces will remain under-represented. It's ridiculous how we slash politicians for speaking their minds, granted they should do it in a respectable manner, but everytime they speak to their beliefs the public is in an uproar. If we don't like what our politicians are saying, we get to not vote for them. Hooray democracy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:33, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
