People are starting to inquire about the referendum and what’s at stake.

I don’t know whether MMP is gaining grassroots momentum as suggested here, but I can also say I just had happen to me yesterday what Laurette at Politique Vert had happen to her. A friend of mine from college who never has struck me as being overly political sent me a Facebook message asking me if I could explain to her what MMP is, how it works and what I thought were the pros and cons of the system vs the current one. She further explained that she and a friend of hers were talking about the referendum at work and were confused about certain things.

That again points to I what I and many others consider the rather dismal Elections Ontario effort to educate people about this referendum and the choice involved (I call it the non-education effort), but it also shows that in spite of that, people who arent political geeks like me or political bloggers in general are starting to figure out there is a referendum coming, and they genuinely would like to know what its about, and the details about the choices being offered.

  • We are certainly seeing a big uptick in people asking questions about MMP. Just finding the time to answer the queries is becoming a serious challenge.
