Opinion: Not voting means letting others decide for you
A lot of voters weren’t happy with with the outcome of the Ontario provincial election in June.
One reason: Premier Doug Ford cut the size of Toronto city council from 47 to 25 councillors, a move with which 76 per cent of voters disagreed.
This summer, only 58 per cent of registered voters went to the polls. Though that was the highest participation rate in an Ontario election in years, it’s clear that not enough people took the time to be informed and involved in Ontario’s politics.
