Response to Pro-FPTP/Anti-STV Analogy

Discovered over at the Victoria Times-Colonist today:
In the anti-STV article by Bob Plecas Sunday, he provided a fascinating analogy between hockey playoffs and STV. It would apply perfectly in the U.S., which has a two-party system. In B.C. we have three or more parties running. The analogy breaks down when there are four teams out on the ice at the same time.

Now Smarties or gummy bears, they play an entirely different game; and they allow more than two teams!

No gummy bears were harmed in the making of this video. Afterwards? Well, if it were me...
