I don't want to derail this thread (what little remains of it) but as I have said, I don't think the Canadian system is amazing either, with for instance the Liberals controlling 54% of the seats (which is a bona fide landslide in Canada considering all the parties we have) while having about 40% of the popular vote. However, what you say is misleading regarding the latest election; the Liberals are actually the one party that obtained seats in every single province and territory, while the Conservatives had a good majority of their seats in Alberta and Ontario alone, and the NDP had most of theirs in BC and Québec. Meanwhile, the Liberals won literally all the east, Québec, Ontario, the North AND BC in terms of both votes and seats. It's hard to claim only 2 provinces held the key to victory here (albeit, yes, Ontario is the main battleground province). And hell, last I checked based on population Ontario should have had even bigger a say than they did, given their demographics. I'm not going to go any further regarding separation movements, given that it's not the purpose of this thread. But at least in Canada the guy who won the popular vote also won the bleeding election.
