Ranking By-election Candidates by votes

I think it is important to see how well all the candidates did in the by-elections compared to each other.   I highlight this because once MPs are in Ottawa they are all treated the same even though many of them have much less support than others.   There is something inherently wrong with our system when 12,642 people can vote Linda McQuaig and she loses by Emmanuel Duborg with 8,767 votes is now an MP.
