If only you supported proportional representation, you would see that the Greens would have influence that reflected their votes, the NDP would be severely reduced in their power based on the votes received. 

You wouldn’t be here complaining!  You’d be celebrating the fact that the NDP weren’t “rewarded for lying”. 

Yet here we are....  NDP massive majority with 45% of the vote.

I do support proportional representation. I voted for STV in both referendums.

If the first referendum had been held using the same rules as the last one, we would have PR now.

PR is only for those who favour the party that's losing.

No matter how you try to cut it, it's an endorsement of the NDP and it's conslusive just in the fact that the contrary side was decisively less. Those who stayed home could be reasonably considered to be happy with the status quo government in power.

I believe one of the biggest factors for the NDP majority win is that the heart has been ripped out of the political right because of US politics of madness!

Those who stayed home were happy with the status quo which was a minority, they didn't want an election.

You would be ashamed of that remark wilbur, if you weren't such a dull character.

Why be ashamed of the obvious? Do you even know what status quo means?
