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

QUESTION

Isn't giving political parties total control over the makeup of the list undemocratic?

ANSWER

It certainly is. It is important to be highly ranked on a party list in MMP. If a candidate is highly ranked, then he or she is pretty much guaranteed a seat at Queen's Park, so long as that party gets 3% of the vote. So if you want to vote for a party but do not like whom they have at the top of the list, you are pretty much stuck. Not only is this undemocratic, it is also unfair.
