Just after the election I too was hopeful.

However I have lost that optimism as a result of seeing that most voters 
have become distracted by other, less-important, election issues, such 
as voter suppression, "fake news," Russian hacking, gerrymandering, 
electoral college votes, cabinet-member choices, etc.

Compared to those issues, banning single-mark ballots would have far 
more success.  Alas, we have not been able to get that concept across.

I was also optimistic that Canada would follow through on the prime 
minister's promise to abandon "first-past-the-post," but that has ended 
with no reform because election-method reformers cannot agree on what to 
replace FPTP with.

As I said earlier, now my focus is on planning videos that are both more 
entertaining and easier to understand compared to the books and articles 
I've written.
