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

Is it better to always have minority governments? Wouldn't that be better for Ontario?

ANSWER

The Yes Side is telling the public that minority governments are better and will lead to improvement in politics in Ontario. Here's a quote from the Yes Side's literature:

"...because parties will be required to work with one another in coalitions to pass legislation, the system will reward cooperation, compromise and accountability in place of partisan rigidity, trivial bickering and narrow thinking".

Anyone with any common sense knows this is ridiculous. We have had minority governments at the federal level for some time and many people in the media as well as ordinary Canadians are complaining more and more about the rancour and uncivilized behaviour in Queen's Park.

It is a mistake to think an electoral system will change the nature of politics and politicians. As recent history has shown, minority governments have not taken away the bickering and partisan rancour that Canadians have been used to from our politicians.

Also, let us not forget that majority governments have produced very positive achievements, most notably the patriation of our Constitution.
