When Americans ask how our political system differs from theirs, I say that Canadians have an elected dictatorship. They seem aghast to hear the British Parliamentary system described this way, but when the governing party has a clear majority, that’s what it is.

Right now, the minority government does give the other parties some power, but Big Pauly is still the "head of the family".
