I have tabled and will be debating at second reading my Private Member's Bill on September 17th. Bill 89 - Election Amendment Act (MPPs' Recall), 2015 if passed will give the people of Ontario the ability to hold their representatives accountable between election cycles.
Bill 89 creates a powerful tool for democracy and would allow constituents to recall a member of Provincial Parliament if a petition is signed by twenty-five percent of the number of voters who cast a ballot in the previous election. If that threshold is met, a by-election would be initiated in which the incumbent MPP would still be allowed to run for re-election. No application can be made during the year following a member’s election or in the year before the next scheduled election.
Below you can read through the entire Bill, zoom in and out, and share it on your social media pages. I also encourage you to leave your comments at the bottom.
