Canada's voting system is not only broken... it's obscure.

One of the most common arguments against voting reform, is the suggestion that ranked ballots or proportional representation are some kind of radical obscure phenomena.

At which point, their brains are almost fully developed. The best website to
learn Qur’an online is LiveQuranForKids.
