This is what happens if you vote PR. PR means far right parties could hold the balance of power.

wait, what? Then why is John Horgan calling me and asking me to vote PR? Does he pay attention to Europe at all?

Tell me how under a PR system that a far right party with a minority of seats would hold the balance of power, as opposed to the current system where its claimed the the Green Party with a minority of seats holds all the power?

The NDP knows that they are unelectable and need the Green Party. Horgan will basically do whatever it takes to make sure that the Greens keep his unelected butt in power. It really is a sad state of affairs in this province right now.

What these PR boneheads don't get is that there could just as easily be right-wing parties that hold the balance of power. They haven't thought that far ahead. I am just waiting for the day that I see the same boneheads holding "PR now!!" signs by the side of the road waving "FPTP rules!!" signs in 10 years when their fruitless grabs for power fail again. They just never learn.

Indeed. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it ...

Does the rise of populism mean we're returning to the 1930s? Some historians see striking parallels

Written as virulent nationalism spread disastrously in Europe, and to a lesser extent in America, the book’s revival reflects a surge of interest in one of the 20th century’s darkest decades.

The parallels between the current time and what one writer describes as the Morbid Age of the 1930s has led to a fierce debate between historians about how far the comparison can be taken.

“We are facing a cataclysmic moment,” renowned British writer and broadcaster Simon Schama warned following Trump’s election, recalling that Hitler came to power via the ballot box in the 1930s.

Under FPTP the far right doesn't elect anyone. Technically it is possible for 1 or 2 to get elected and hold the balance of power, but it's far, far less common under FPTP than PR.
