When there are more than two parties under FPP, vote splitting can allow a 39% minority party to win over 50% of the seats — and 100% of the power. This is called a false majority because the party didn't earn a majority of seats with a majority of votes.
This fake majority — the 60% super-majority was opposed to — gives the Harper Government absolute power to pass any legislation it wants. (What Harper called a “benign dictatorship” while in opposition.)
In 94% of the developed world, government represents an actual majority of voters.
Voting reform ensures real majority
There are two ways to achieve true democracy:
Prefential Voting (ranked ballot): This ensures majority rule at a local riding level: MPs must earn their seats with a majority. To accomplish this, the voter’s ballot is changed from single-choice to ranked. It’s the same method used by parties to elect their leaders.
Proportional Representation: This ensures majority rule at a federal level. This system awards parties the same percentage of power they got in federal votes. Usually two or more parties form stable majority governments.
