Currently, Ontario has 107 representatives who represent almost 13 million people. That's one Member for about 119,000 people. This makes Ontarians the most under-represented citizens in Canada by far.
Under the new model proposed by the Ontario Citizens' Assembly, the total number of members will rise to 129. That will be one Member for about every 95,000 Ontarians, a marked improvement.
At 129 seats, the new legislature will still be smaller than previous Ontario legislatures. Queen's Park had 130 seats from 1987 to 1999.
This will represent a tiny portion of the overall Ontario budget. That will be money well-spent to ensure that every vote counts (unlike now) and that laws passed by our government are supported by parties representing over 50% of the people (unlike now.)
Under MMP, you're guaranteed one local representative, just like now. But you'll also be able to elect 39 new, province-wide representatives. That's 40 people directly accountable to you, elected to represent your interests at Queen's Park, unlike just one (1) now.
