For legacy reasons, the miniature provinces of the east coast have disproportionately large representation in parliament and especially the senate.  The historical factors that made it this way are no longer relevant, but we can't just wave a wand and change it.

I disagree. The Atlantic provnces, particularly the Maritimes as a region have distinct interests that do overlap, but are very different from Quebec (the next closest province). The Maritimes are also culturally distinct from the other regions. Suffice it to say, they should precisely enough of a voice in the legislature that neither Ontario nor Quebec gets to decide for the Maritimes their destiny.

You guys seem to have a really big issue with sovereignty and what that means in this context.
