Madam Speaker, the Yukon's representation would also be watered down by increasing the number of seats. Forty per cent of Canada is north of 60 and yet only 3 of 308 MPs are in this place.
I appreciate the Senate's role in representing under-represented regions and demographics.
The leader of the Green Party will be running in Saanich—Gulf Islands. I do not know whether she will win or not, but she will get a considerable number of votes. If that party does not get any seats in Parliament, the number of votes will not have contributed to this Parliament.
Aboriginal people are under-represented as well compared to their proportion of the population.
I wonder if the member has a comment on that.
