Subject: RE: BS: Reclaim the USA (except Utah)
In Canada also one votes not for the PM (unless one is in his own personal riding), but for the local party member (or independent) of one's choice. The party leader of the party with the most seats becomes the PM. An embarrassing situation could arise if he lost his own riding, but his party still won the election...I don't think it has ever happened, because they always make sure to run in a riding where they won't lose.
