no public consensus on an alternate presented itself... polls consistently showed that a majority of those polled did not want to change the electoral system. Pointedly, also consistently from the point the campaign suggestion was made, PM Trudeau repeatedly stated he did not favour going directly to the people (as in a referendum approach to determine an alternative). The waldo's recall has you, member wilber, repeatedly touting the B.C. electoral referendums... that is until the waldo showcased just what a sham they were... related posts can certainly be replayed if you'd like to dance again!

Trudeau never put any options to the public. When the opposition wouldn't go for his ranked ballot system, he used it as an excuse to back away entirely.

If a twice elected MP and son of one of the longest serving prime ministers doesn't understand the implications of any proportional or ranked system before he made the promise, he is either dumber than a sack of hammers or being deliberately dishonest during an election campaign.
