The only thing that tops misinforming voters by telling them they just voted in the last FPTP election is insisting that was never actually a real promise.

who are your claimed "insisters"? ... certainly not PM Trudeau! Save for invested politicos, electoral reform is not a driving issue behind Canadians voting practices. You're invested, so... you want to keep nattering on about it! And you do so even when PM Trudeau has repeatedly given his reasons/rationale behind walking away from electoral reform. We've had several threads discussing this and yet you still insist on repeatedly bringing it forward. Is it simply because you want change for change sake? ... because clearly its been shown that PR is a system that can favour the fringe & extremist elements. Where these fringe/extremist elements can end up holding the balance of power; something that PM Trudeau also alluded to as part of his reasoning/rationale in not pursuing electoral reform. Of course you conveniently ignore that PM Trudeau, with a majority government, could have pursued ranked balloting but he has pointedly stated he walked away from that because he recognized there was a narrative being pushed by PR advocates that ranked balloting favoured the Liberal party.
