Representation by Population (offer not valid in Quebec)

Terry O'Neil has a posting on the Shotgun blog about how StatsCan has determined that Alberta/BC combined now beat out Quebec in population, and reminds us that the latter has double the Senate seats as the former, plus 11 extra MPs.

The former issue is, of course, a bit of a red herring: the Triple-E Senate requires there to be massive population disparities, but that also allows true Rep-by-Pop in the House of Commons.

(As an aside, can you believe that the Wikipedia Triple-E entry makes absolutely no mention of Stan Waters?)
