SMMP 2004

In 2004, the democratic deficit was 45.5. This means that out of the 308 seat Parliament, 45.5 seats were occupied by a party which were in excess of the seats they would be entitled to under a proportional system. Of these, the Liberals held an extra 21.9 seats, Bloc Québécois held an extra 15.9 seats, and the Conservatives 7.7 extra seats.

In short, the first past the post system awarded the Liberal Party with 21.9 seats more than they deserved based on the popular vote, the BQ party 15.9 seats more seats than they deserved and the Conservatives 7.7 seats more than they deserved. This represents about 15% of the seats in the House of Commons.
