Protesters outraged by broken electoral promise

During the campaign, Justin Trudeau said repeatedly that the 2015 election would be the last under the first-past-the-post system. That system allowed Stephen Harper, and then Trudeau, to form a majority government with a minority of the votes. The Liberal promise is believed to have led some NDP and Green supporters to vote strategically for the Liberals – in the hopes of getting a reformed electoral process for the future in which the results would more closely resemble the voting.   Photo submitted
