Ontario once again has a majority Liberal government, the first time back-to-back majorities have been won by the Liberal party since 1937. It will be this way until 2011 with the fixed election dates we now have in Ontario. The election reform to mixed member proportional was soundly rejected by the voters as well.
As I queued up for voting, I heard people talking in line about the referendum topic: no one knew what mixed member proportional was. Meanwhile, voter turnout was the lowest in history, despite extended voting hours and lots of advance polls.
My conclusion: an ill-informed minority of people are voting. Through apathy or ignorance, we get what’s coming to us.
