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.

I don't like them because they are populist garbage.

Just because I don't like them, doesn't mean that I support an electoral system that is unrepresentative. If they had 6 seats in a proportional system, that's what they deserve based on the number of people who voted for their mouth-breathing idiocy.

Why is proportional system good on a provincial level but not federal?
