Summary The current electoral system has failed to give Ontarians the governments we have voted for. First-Past-the-Post has given majority control of our legislature to parties that have received substantially less than majority support from the voters. Proportional Representation [PR], in almost any format, will provide Ontario with governments that truly reflect the votes cast by Ontarians.

Summary Condorcet elections have been used for public elections. The city of Marquette, Michigan, U.S.A. once used a Condorcet voting system known as Nanson's Method for the election of all city officials. Condorcet elections are properly classified by Hoag and Hallett as majority preferential voting and not as proportional representation.
