Today, we Ontarians get to pick a new premier. Lets hope its someone who can actually deliver to help the majority of people, instead of just promising.
The more pressing issue is a referendum. The question is whether we stick with the current system. Or do we go the “mixed member proportional system”. The current one (first one past the post) we all understand. Our system is held up by experts as a model of an honest system. None of the strange, un-understandable mathematical formulas to figure what proportion of people get elected. Actually, the only people who benefit are the political parties who can form the equivalent of political cartels, deciding for us who gets power.
So I am asking all Ontario voters to against a mixed member proportional system. Our current electoral system is the most democratic and most free.
