• Leave your EGO at the door and never invite it back in.
• Worry is not an option
• What will be, shall be.

"Everyone dies. It is the final and only ever lasting justice. Evil exists; it is intelligence in the service of entropy. When the side of a mountain slides to kill a village, this is not evil, for evil requires intent. Should a sentient being cause that landslide, there is evil; and requires justice as a consequence, so that civilization can exist. There is no greater good than justice; and only if law serves justice is it a good law. It is said correctly that law exists not for the just but for the unjust, for the just carry the law in their hearts, and do not need to call it from afar. I bow to no one and give service only for cause."

In the US, we also kind of have this. Because each state gets only 2 senators, no matter their population, some places (like California) are 'under represented' in the Senate, but in the House, we are represented according to population. In that way, we 'balanced' regional power and per-capita power...and also gave smaller regional representation at a federal level (my representative votes differently from representatives in Southern California, for instance). Not perfect (obviously from current events) but it WAS one good solution when reasonable people used it.

Yes, that's kinda the point.
Per capita, BC doesn't have enough seats. We are far out weighed by Quebec and Ontario. And unfortunately, they don't care about what our opinions are. We vote differently than them in every way,

Also, Ontario gets more seats than BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba Combined.

That sounds dumb. Aren't there more people in the west too? Why would everyone not get the same level of power per capita? Odd.

Embarrassed by this...
Us, out West have no influence whatsoever on policy made in Canada as all policy is made in the East. The political borders in Canada make it impossible for anything we say or do to be of any consequence.
We whipped our hands of them years ago because they built the structure in a way that we were excluded.

Critical Thinking. One thing I try to teach my kids is how to think for themselves. Listen to what people have to tell you. Measure the facts and wonder if they make sense. Confirm facts, and then make up their own decisions.
If you filter certain facts from the thinking process, then your thinking comes out flawed and incomplete. How can kids not form solid thoughts if there are people out there stopping them from learning the basic building blocks of how things work?
