Welcome to the NO MMP web site.
Thank you and congratulations to all of you who voted to retain the current electoral system!
On next October 10th, as part of the next provincial election,
Ontarians will be asked if they want to replace our current electoral
system with a Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) form of voting. This
site is designed to help you make your decision in this important
Referendum. If we decide to change, we will have to live with that
decision for a long, long time.
Please use this site to learn more about our current system and the
pitfalls of MMP voting.
To achieve the single goal of proportionality, the proposed MMP
system shifts power from the local voter in ridings across Ontario to
the power brokers at Queen's Park.
Specifically MMP would bring:
17 fewer local ridings, covering more territory, with less contact
with your local representative
39 politicians chosen by other politicians ... not you
Closed door party deal-making for weeks after elections, to decide
who governs the province
Tax dollars paying for 22 more politicians and their staff at Queen's
A confusing ballot and vote-counting system
A weaker, indecisive Ontario
Fringe parties holding the balance of power with 2 or 3 seats
On October 10th, vote to keep our present voting system!
