MMP Debate Makes for Strange Bedfellows

This Tory Blogger says she won't vote for MMP because it's just a big scam to keep the Liberals in power forever and she points here to make her case, conveniently ignoring the fact that most Liberal MPPs and this popular Liberal blogger are dead set against MMP. There are Tories, like Senator Hugh Segal and this guy who support MMP. Meanwhile, this NDP blogger says he can't support MMP because it "is not the panacea that many are making it out to be." Although he is certainly a minority in his party, he's likley pleased by the NDP's decision not to campaign for MMP.

Thanks for the plug... I have many concerns with MMP, but most of those have to do with how this proposal would work, not with PR. I'd love to see a form of PR on this ballot that did a better job than this one, which is why I cannot support it.
