SORT BY Relevancy
The Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister of Democratic Reform Maryam Monsef have pledged that Election 42 will be the last using the "First Past The Post" system. What their plan is has yet to be revealed to the Canadian public. But the discussion is very lively about what a new electoral system should look like for Canada outside the House.
Over 90 countries, including 85% of OECD members, use some form of Proportional Representation. The old rhetoric of "every vote counts" is simply not true in a FPTP electoral system. Since World War I, Canada has had 17 "majority governments" based on seat count. Only four of those had an actual majority of the popular vote. Canadians have in reality been electing minority governments most of the time, based on vote totals. The Liberal government has publicly decried "We will make every vote count". Do Canadians really think their votes translated into an accurate seat count? On October 19, it took 37,728 votes to elect one Liberal MP. It took 602,755 votes to elect one Green MP. Nearly 17.6 million votes were cast, yet the overwhelming Liberal majority was delivered with just 4.6 million of them.
Kelly Carmichael, Executive Director of Fair Vote Canada, joins us to examine what is and what needs to be for Election 43. Proportional Representation delivers equal and effective votes, better environmental performance, better gender equality and better policy development and implementation, based on historical data.

The greatest and most important adventure of our lives is discovering who we really are. "What kinds of dreams did you have for your life before you lost yourself in the busy-ness of life? What have you since deemed impossible or improbable because of where you are today? Grab a journal and reconnect with the dreams you once had and better yet, come up with some new dreams. In a perfect world, what would you love to be, have, or do? What is your soul aching for? Once you reconnect with your dreams, you’ll have the desire and inspiration to begin to take action and suddenly you will have found yourself again."
Should police who go to jail get special protection? Today Jason Van Dyke, shooter of Laquan McDonald goes to trial. He fears for his life if imprisoned. Should our tax dollars pay for his protection?

Chicago's Cubs had the Washington Nationals shut out through 8 2/3 before Jayson Werth hit a two-run blast to left off Travis Wood, but it wasn't enough as the Nats dropped the series opener in Wrigley Field by a score of 5-2. Joe Ross was solid again for the Nationals, but a rough inning in the fourth led to the only two runs he allowed while on the mound. Cubs' starter Kyle Hendricks tossed six scoreless to earn the win. Three more to go in Chicago...

What is a spiritual heart? Is a spiritual heart equally important as our physical heart? How do we discipline ourselves to have a healthy spiritual heart? Sometimes it's necessary to discern the condition of our heart in our relationships, conversations and in communicating with others. It helps to avoid arguments, misunderstandings and resolve conflict with others It's important to be aware if your heart is open when you're communicating with others or closed. Why? Having an open heart versus a closed heart while you're communication with your spouse, child or friend has a significant affect on how the conversation goes. Have you ever tried talking to you child when you're mad? Have they ever talked to you while they were upset? How did that go? How do you know when your heart is open or closed? You know because when your heart is open, you connect with people. When your heart is closed you don't. When your heart is open you focus on solutions. When your heart is closed you focus on what people are doing wrong. To cultivate a healthy heart, we have to discipline ourselves.
