Our present voting system diminishes the value of millions of votes, and threatens the legitimacy of our democratic system and the economic stability it underwrites. Proportional representation, however, would allow voters to choose both their local MPP and provincial government, and in doing so would modernize the electoral system in ways that will promote stability and broaden participation.
