Moving to a method you promote would ensure more Brousseau like results. I worded my point poorly.

Moving to fewer ridings destroys the notion of representation by population. The government is quickly moving to ADD 30 ridings not eliminate them. This is supported by the Mowatt Institute at U of T which recently did a study and concluded that BC, Alberta and Ontario are under represented in the Commons.

Why would you give seats to a party that didn't get enough votes to get elected?

That's watered down democracy. What would you call them? The Consolation Prize seats? The Participation Award Seaats?
