Canada's system of government is much more like the King and Queen. Much less representation, no?

Much less representation. Canada uses FPTP. You're effectively voting for the party, not the leader. The leader of the party is appointed as PM or Premier(for provinces). You don't vote for the senate, you don't vote for judges or chiefs of police, or prosecutors. Those are all appointed by the ruling party of the day.

You'd think, but I'll tell ya how fucked up it really is.

Imagine that So.Cal, NYC, and Portland made up the largest voting blocks in the US, but only account for 43% of the electorate. There is no electoral college, no remedy for removing governors or any political leader. Politicians at the federal level only go to those three places, unless they're on shaky ground.

That's what Canadian politics is like, and it's probably going to be what causes canada to fracture or balkanize.
