Quickie: Electoral Reform - is it dead?

News came today that the Liberals have decided to bias their own electoral reform committee in favour of a system that does not yet exist, by distributing seats as though Canada has a Proportional Representation system.

What this means is we will have a committee where 4 members want FPTP, 3 want PR, and 5 want a ranked ballot. As such it becomes quite likely that the committee will deadlock itself and we will have another election in 2019 under the current system because we could not agree on what to change it to.

Regardless, I am still working on a new video that examines all the possible systems in one go.
