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

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

How does the proposed MMP model distribute the list seats?

ANSWER

The list seats will be distributed on a province-wide list tier. This is different from other MMP countries like Germany that divide up their lists into regions.

This means that the list seats can be distributed in any way that political parties deem necessary or politically expedient. They can decide to put all their seats in Toronto, or any other part of the province. There is no provision in this proposal to make political parties distribute the 39 seats evenly across Ontario.

Under this MMP proposal, there is no mechanism to ensure that the 39 party list MPPs are distributed evenly throughout Ontario, thus ensuring weaker accountability. The only way to ensure that is to fix representatives to a specific constituency, just like in our current system."
