It is expected that, on May 15, 2007, Ontario’s Citizens Assembly on Electoral Reform will recommend replacing Ontario’s Single Member Plurality (SMP or “First Past the Post”) electoral system with the Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) system. If it does so, Ontario will hold a referendum on October 10, 2007, to decide whether or not to replace Ontario’s SMP system with the MMP system.
