Bill 80, Local Choice for Local Elections Act (Ranked Ballot By-Laws), 2021 receives First Reading
Last week, MPP Mitzie Hunter's Private Member's Bill has received First Reading.
MPP Hunter reintroduced her bill, declaring "After municipalities elected their representatives by ranked ballot and others prepared to hold ranked-ballot elections, this government unilaterally revoked the right for municipalities to choose the way that they elect their local government."
This bill would allow Municipal Councils to pass a bylaw adopting a ranked-ballot election for the election of members of Council.
