Buzz·Posted on Dec. 5, 2016The Canadian Government Basically Made A Bad BuzzFeed Quiz For Electoral ReformYer an innovator, Harry.by Lauren StrapagielBuzzFeed News ReporterFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Remember when the Liberal Party campaigned on electoral reform then were like, meh? Morgan @morganalan Electoral reform was the original scam 09:31 PM - 02 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite Well the government has now launched MyDemocracy.ca, a survey-meets-quiz to "draw a picture of your democratic values." mydemocracy.ca The ~innovative~ approach asks Canadians a series of questions about things like online voting, how political parties work together, and diverse representation. mydemocracy.ca Some of the questions are a bit... stark. The quiz then spits out a label for you, such as "innovator" or "guardian." mydemocracy.ca (Results pictured based on random clicking — and yes, you can take the survey as many times as you want.) Obviously the opposition is taking the piss out of it.

Mikhail Menuck @MischaMenuck I can honestly say I've taken BuzzFeed quizzes that were better designed than the Trudeau government's survey on electoral reform #cdnpoli 03:16 PM - 05 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite Which is insulting because we would at least tell you what your results says about your sexual/food/style preferences. Felix Wong @wongfelix88 mydemocracy.ca is a joke. I've seen more accurate surveys from Buzzfeed telling me what I ate for breakfast based on outfit I'm wearing. 04:31 PM - 05 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite Seriously, we had nothing to do with it. Justin Mathews @JustMath19 I'm pretty sure the #mydemocracy 'personality quiz' results is a page straight out of @BuzzFeed. Can you confirm @elamin88? 06:42 PM - 05 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite But also, get off our lawn. Although reactions like this were sort of inevitable. Sunil Johal @JohalSunil Pretty pleased with #mydemocracy result 06:22 PM - 05 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite This too.

Luke Savage @LukewSavage Beginning to think the people behind #MyDemocracy aren't 100% serious about electoral reform...#cdnpoli 05:10 PM - 05 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite For example, none of the questions ask directly about electoral reform, just things that are thematically in that area. Peter Thurley @pfthurley .@MaryamMonsef: The survey doesn't actually ask about a) a referendum or b) if there should be electoral reform: MyDemocracy.ca #MyDemocracy 03:14 PM - 05 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite Tyler McCann @mccanntyler Seems like I missed the mydemocracy.ca question on a referendum, I guess you don't ask the questions you don't want the answers to... #erre 02:50 PM - 05 Dec 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite And some of the questions seem a bit one-sided. Alex Boutilier @alexboutilier I'm not so sure about this question.
