Provincial Election & Referendum

The Ontario Provincial election on Oct. 10 is shaping up to be a real political battle. With the Liberals, Progressive Conservatives, New Democrats, Greens and even fringe parties such as the Freedom Party and Family Coalition taking part in the war-like campaigning. The issues that are leading the ‘Big 3’ (McGuinty, Tory and Hampton) debates are education, health care, the environment and Toronto’s budget crisis. But the only problem now is to find a leader that can look past partisan politics and move this province forward.

There’s also a vote for electoral reform on the ballot where Ontarians can choose which type of representation they want in the future at Queen’s Park. FPTP(First-Past-the-Post), which is the current system, is up against MMP(Mixed Member Proportional). This referendum may alter the political landscape in Canada and change the way Members of Provincial Parliament are elected.
