What people are saying about MMP...

"MMP acknowledges the strength of parties and legitimises it by giving parties still greater power, reducing the number of ridings, making it still more difficult for independent candidates to win, and creating a whole list of completely illegitimate MPPs accountable to noone but their parties" - David Graham, Guelph, ON

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.

Main Objection:

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 Park

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!

QUESTION

Doesn't an MMP system mean political parties have less influence over candidates and that candidates can be more responsive to voters?

ANSWER

No. If anything, political parties gain more power over candidates, making them more responsible to the party brass than the voters of Ontario.

All candidates will want a high rank on a party list, and will have to rely on substantial party support to get that. This is over and above the party support and finance that a candidate needs to get elected at the constituency level.
