What people are saying about MMP...

"Fringe parties who have trouble electing a single candidate will be given not one but four seats for hitting the 3% threshold of the popular vote count" - Robert White, Kitchener, ON

Flyers

People and groups around the province are producing their own flyers in support of the current system in the October 10th referendum. If you have made one and would like to share it for others to download and print, send it to us at contact@nommp.ca and we will probably post it here.

If you are looking for a flyer to download, print, and distribute, look through these ones and print as many as you like of whichever ones you like!

In response to many requests for NO MMP signs, we are offering two on the web site. One is at 8.5" by 11" for printing on your home computer, and a larger 11" by 17" version would be suitable for mounting as a lawn or window sign.

QUESTION

Does MMP give us better representation?

ANSWER

No it does not. In fact, the strength of our representation would weaken dramatically if MMP were to become our electoral system. Ontarians, compared to citizens in other provinces, are already the most poorly represented citizens in Canada.

It is not entirely certain who the 39 proportional or list MPPs that come from party lists represent. They might be considered to represent their political parties in the legislature. But we at NO MMP think that MPPs should represent citizens - people like you and me - from a real constituency, not the political parties who already have too much power in our democracy.

Some consider these list MPPs "at-large representatives" or "regional representatives". This will leave us with several MPPs who represent large and densely populated regions, but do not represent clearly defined ridings as it is under our current system. This makes it very difficult for citizens to identify which of the party list MPPs represents them. This will certainly dilute representation here in Ontario.

Who exactly do these list MPPs represent? MMP has no real answer. They sort of do not represent anyone, which means that there is less accountability and weaker democracy in Ontario.
