"In all, 11 ministers either changed jobs or were added to cabinet, increasing the size of the ministry from 30 to 35, including the prime minister — the largest it has been under Trudeau..."

    Interesting to see that each party is only interested in supporting a new election format IF it is to their electoral benefit. Is this what you can expect from a committee and a government that is made up of proportional representation ???
