After repeating his key election platform over 1800 times, Justin Trudeau sent his newly minted Minister of Electoral reform out in front of the media to break his promise "To Make Every Vote Count" (only proportional representation can make every vote count).
The backlash was immediate. Citizens across the country rallied against the undemocratic decision and the unfair voting system that rewards parties with 20% of the vote in certain ridings, 100% of the power.
In the 2015 election, the Liberals enjoyed the support of 39% of voters but half of those voters voted in ridings where an opposition party won.
20% of voters elected the 184 Liberal MPs that currently have 100% of the power.
