In my opinion, undergraduate programs, especially arts, at McGill are not at this level. These rankings and comparisons do hold for graduate programs and research but not undergrad. And unless you get access to supervisors from your honours thesis, or honours and graduate seminars; it doesn't compare to universities it likes to compare itself to.
I shot the s.it with McGill profs all the time about political theory. Just stop by in their office and start talking. You don't need honors thesis to do this. Just initiative. Also, it's not I do not get accept to upper level seminars if I'm an honors student. Had an advanced seminar with Abizadeh.
