Disappointment as Bill 166 is dead

Alas, the upcoming provincial election has killed Bill 166, the Toronto Ranked Ballot Elections Act. All outstanding pieces of legislation go back to the drawing board; Bill 166 made it through two readings and public hearings had been scheduled, but that’s not enough unfortunately.

It’s a setback. However, patience has been a hallmark of the Ranked Ballot Initiative of Toronto, and I’m confident that the push for ranked ballots will continue afresh after the provincial election.
