Majority-minority challenged.

Yet another letter to the editor suggests that a coalition government in Canada represents the will of the majority:

Stephen Harper is Prime Minister of this country, even though the majority of voters did not vote for his party. If Mr. Harper achieves another minority in Parliament, why shouldn’t the Liberals, the NDP and, if necessary, the Bloc form the government? Such a group would reflect the will of the majority

While the majority of voters did not vote for the Conservatives, when pairs of parties are taken together, the Conservatives took the majority each time. Nobody voted for a coalition. Having the largest proportion of the vote is why Stephen Harper is Prime Minister, even if he heads a minority government.

And unless the Liberals, NDP, and Bloc are planning on running as a coalition, people still won’t be voting for a coalition.

And don’t even get me started on Justin Trudeau leading the coalition.
