WATCH: The quest for a ranked-ballot in Toronto
A Liberal MPP and NDP MPP table separate bills on the issue
1 0

One Liberal MPP is set to table a bill to get a ranked-ballot voting system in Toronto.

Mitzie Hunter was joined by Toronto city councillor Joe Mihevc at Queen's Park for the announcement.

This comes the day after NDP MPP Jonah Schein introduced a similar bill at the legislature.

A ranked-ballot system would have voters organize a number of choices by preference. If a candidate doesn't get more than 50 per cent of voters' number one picks, the second and third choices would then be considered until someone does get the majority of voter support.

Mihevc thinks this would lead to a more courteous campaign given candidates would be vying for 2nd and 3rd picks of voters as well.

This wouldn't impact this year's election but would be put in place for the 2018 municipal vote.

    I trust Mihevc (Miller lackey) and Mitzie Hunter as I would trust McGuinty. If they're pushing for this it must be bad for fiscal conservatives.
