PR does not encourage political pluralism

FALSE

A:

Our current system is designed to favour large political parties and to limit the presence of small parties. Consequently it limits divergent opinions in the House of Commons, since the large parties monopolize the debate for the most part.

 

On the other hand, a proportional voting system would allow for better representation of the different opinions throughout Canada, since representation in the House of Commons would be proportional, as the name implies, to the percentage of votes obtained in the election.
