SMMP 2006

In 2006, the democratic deficit was 40.9. This means that out of the 308 seat Parliament, 40.9 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 Bloc Québécois held an extra 18.7 seats, the Conservatives 12.3 seats, and the Liberals 9.9 seats.

In short, the first past the post system awarded the BQ party 18.7 seats more seats than they deserved based on the popular vote, and awarded the Conservatives 12.3 seats more than they deserved and the Liberals 9.9 seats more than they deserved. This represents about 13% of the seats in the House of Commons.
