Do you understand the difference between a person and a province?

Are you advocating for per population thus status quo?
 
Cannuck
#93
No. I said Das’ idea was dumb because it gave unequal representation. You seem to disagree yet can’t make a coherent argument as to why.

So how would you assign senate seats in Canada then?

So status quo then? H'mm so your response to post #92 could have been a yes instead. OK

That's pretty unfair. Quebec and Ontario have a far bigger population than all the other provinces and the territories put together, so you're advocating for the status quo. No wonder AB mumbles about separation occasionally.

No, Iím not advocating the status quo. There are lots of different models that fall under the one person/one vote system. Why do you think one person/one vote is unfair and do you suggest your ďfairĒ system should be used everywhere? Should Hilton Beach Ontario get the same number of MPPs as Toronto? If not, why? How do you consider giving 75,000 people in PEI one senator and 2 million Albertans, one senator fair? Seems pretty weighted in an Islanderís favour.

Yeah, you are. As I said most of Canada's voter population is in ON and QC so what the people in those province want is what goes regardless of what westerners want. It's why we've had mostly Liberal governments through history.

No. You only think so because you arent open to the option of changing the authority of the senate or the division of powers between federal and provincial governments

Yes, their votes should be worth many times more than mine, instead.

I see you ignored the question about Hilton Beach. Do you think it should have the same number of MPPs as Toronto?

Baloney. You're almost as addled as MHz.
Post #73, "the fed gov't is far too influential and should divest some powers to the provinces. That would be a start."
SO what's your solution, in detail, if you don't mind.

So itís interesting that some folks think giving PEI the same representation of Alberta is perfectly reasonable yet giving Hilton Beach the same representation as Toronto isnít. I believe some people will support any idea that they think benefits them without giving much thought to the general principles driving the idea. No intelligent person would expect (or should expect) a senate system mirroring the US without proposing a drastic devolution of powers from the federal government to the provinces. While I donít necessarily have a problem with that philosophically, it just isnít going to happen given the current political climate.

BTW Boomster, Iím always in the marker for vacation properties but not timeshares. I would rather purchase. Iíd say ďkeep me in mind if you see anything goodĒ but your standards are considerably below mine so donít bother.

The Libertarian philosophy is "What's in it for me?", and fair and proportional representation does not contain a lot of "me" and it has way too much "us".

I donít see it as selfish as ďwhatís in it for meĒ. In fact, itís quite the opposite. I see the socialist philosophy as ďwhatís in it for meĒ. I donít want anything ďfor meĒ

A healthy democracy requires both "me" and "us" in your head.
