First Past the Post eh!!!!!

Hey!!!! I win because more people voted for my party



No!!! I win because I was first past the post

If it wasn’t so serious, it would be funny. I’m referring to the recent NB election and the liberal leader. Here we have the usual libs/PCs all calling to maintain the First Passed The Post system. They are so quick to deny the system of Proportional Representation, it causes unstable governments etc. We have heard it all before! Yet here is Brian Gallant claiming that even though the PCs won more seats in this FPTP race, he should remain as the government because his party won a larger portion of the popular vote. Hmm! Now that sound awfully close to what many people would understand as Proportional Representation. Typical old party politics, it only counts if we win eh????

God Bless and keep reading
