Current rabble poll

After 'Gallagher's Index,' what is your favourite piece of 'Liberal math'?

If Justin Trudeau approving two pipelines on Tuesday was tragedy, Minister of Democratic Institution Maryam Monsef's performance in Parliament today was farce.

Min. Monsef held up a drawing of "Gallagher's Index," a fairly simple equation used to measure the proportionality of electoral systems, in order to show how complicated ordinary Canadians would find electoral reform -- you know, the reform she was specifically mandated to study and communicate to those same Canadians. She was immediately and roundly mocked on Twitter.

But is Gallagher's Index complicated compared to the other examples of Liberal math? Which equation best defines the Liberal party?
