On Tuesday, Ontario officials said the province will receive 13 additional seats under the new formula, down from the 18 seats expected under a previous expansion proposal that failed to pass before the May 2 election.I am hoping that this is just an unconfirmed rumour, because, in no way does Quebec deserve any more MP's, as a matter of fact, they already have too many MP's for their voter base. While they are redistributing MP's, can we reduce PEI to one MP from the 4 they presently have?
As well, British Columbia may gain only five seats, instead of the seven anticipated under the last plan, according to reports circulating Tuesday.
The changes in those two heavily populated provinces could allow Quebec to gain two federal seats, a response to criticism from some Quebecers that the earlier federal proposal endangered that province’s influence on Canadian government decisions.
Meanwhile, Alberta could gain six seats, instead of the five expected under the last proposal.
More examples of how the east rules the west. This is just blatant pandering to Quebec. My nose detects a stench coming from Ottawa, and much as the east is used to the stench, we out here in the west, do not want it drifting into our back yards.
Stop the Quebec pandering. If they don't like the original agreement, too bad, it was fair. Not like the fact that Quebec gets 75 MP's no matter what their population might be in the future. No that is unfair.
PM Harper, Quebec isn't going to EVER vote for you, so quit the pandering. They are like teenagers, all hot hormones and not much thinking.
