Democratic Canadians are fond of the practice “majority rules.” The simplicity of this aphorism is practised and quoted from our children’s playgrounds to our corporate boardrooms. Sir Isaac Newton recognized the value of simplicity: truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things. Since 1867, majority rule is how we had hoped our electoral system would function. This electoral model has not withstood the modern day test of time though.
