Oh...Really? I think Alberta has had plenty of federal support. Stephen Harper was from Alberta. Several of his cabinet were from Alberta. Andrew Scheer is from Alberta. Rona Ambrose was from Alberta. Jason Kenny is, obviously, from Alberta - and he used to be a federal Harper crony. Michelle Rempel is from Alberta. The majority of people serving in Ottawa are from the prairies, and Ontario. A few from Quebec. Less coastal representation on either coast. If you want to talk about underrepresentation...try the BC west coast which is not only a critical Pacific Rim transport hub for international trade, but also critical to the planet’s ocean ecosystem...with almost no representation. Elizabeth May is the strongest voice from out here, and she’s pretty fallible herself, as much as I think she’s a nice person. Singh, originally from Ontario but now represents Burnaby, BC - but can anyone remember anything he has done? He seems like a nice guy but he’s pretty unremarkable.Because Alberta often gets screwed over when it comes to federal stuff.
Because it's not one vote per person to determine the leader.
Last election, my MP had the most number of votes out of all the conservative candidates - that should say something there.
Based on the 2016 census my riding had the largest population, it was new last year but they still don't attempt to make it even. I doubt Quebec would ever have the riding with the largest population,
