One way to improve the voting system in Canada would be to rank candidates on the ballot. This way, if 70% of Canadians disapproved of a candidate, but were divided amongst themselves over their #1 choice.. the dis-liked candidate wouldn't win.

As it stands, this exact situation can occur, where a candidate or party hated by 70% of the population gains power.

For example:
PC - 30%
Liberal - 25%
NDP - 25%
Green - 20%

Ranking is a simple solution to achieve higher levels of democracy!
