How bad is FPTP?

Canada’s current electoral system is commonly called First-Past-The-Post (FPTP) because of the fact that the candidate in each riding with the largest vote share wins, the first one out, regardless of how much vote they get. People often assume our system has some problems but isn’t all that bad…well, take this quiz and see how bad you think it is and what other people guessed. Then go to the bottom of the page to find the answers, I hope you’re sitting down for this, it may shock you.
