Apparently the whole two years or more that they promised and 'worked' on this they were completely ignorant of the fringe party issue, which in fact, isn't much of an issue.  Lying then, lying now, incompetent then, or now, whatever. Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Scotland, horrible, unmanageable places.  Imagine how much better they would be if they had a ranked ballot instead of PR, Trudeau it seems, was imagining that very thing.

This is it, really.

There's good arguments to be made against proportional representation... the fringe-party aspect being the most obvious.  But these were well-known long before he made the election promise. We talked about fringe parties in European parliaments when I was in high school. For him to trot that out now like it's a recent thing that he's stumbled upon due to Kellie Leitch... is just embarrassingly disingenuous.
