Justin Trudeau said he was favourable to changing the electoral system and that he would prefer alternative voting to our actual majoritarian system. What would be the alternative? And what considerations should we have in mind when discussing whether to implement it by referendum or not?

What the conservative government fails to realize is that scientists are public servants. Which means they work for the people of Canada, not the elected party. They are paid via tax dollars, just as politicians are, to perform a service that betters our country. Canada needs science to exist. It's importance cannot be measured by profit margins or popularity. I get it; that makes it difficult to justify spending. Especially since science is not a cheap pursuit, but I guarantee you, it is the most worthwhile pursuit of our time.
