What people are saying about MMP...

"More importantly- why should we change a system which has led to stable government for hundreds of years?" - Mark Krass, Toronto, 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 MMP proposal differ from our current electoral system?

ANSWER

The MMP proposal that all Ontarians will vote on in the October 10 referendum will mark a great change in the way citizens of Ontario elect their representatives.

Under MMP, the voter will be given two votes. They can vote for a local candidate as they would do under our current system, and they also vote for the individual parties as well.

Under the proposed model, the Ontario legislature will consist of 129 seats. Local constituency races will determine 90 of those seats, as it is under the current electoral system. But the other 39 seats will be proportional or list seats and will be used to top up parties' seat totals so that the proportion of seats that each party gets corresponds to the proportion of votes that each party gets in the party vote. If a party fails to get 3% of the overall vote, they will not receive any seats in the legislature.
