Re: Power unchecked
"The only thing that FPTP does guarantee is a two party system."
Not at all.
In many elections a majority could go to any of three parties, or a minority government that caries on as such.
Then there are the cases when two parties agree to form a majority coalition, in which case any of four parties could be involved in the government.
The political landscape can be even more complicated when a party which is not the provincial version of one of the three leading federal parties becomes a majority in a province.
As a result, federal/provincial conferences may have representatives of five or more parties, each controlling a government.
