Advice to Ontario Leaders about Minority – Stick to the Issues

October 1, 2011

There is talk now that Ontario may elect a minority government in the upcoming election. My advice: leaders should avoid making promises about what they would or would not do to form government. Once the people have spoken and the seat counts are settled, only then can the parties know what their options are.

Parties can state any policy conditions they would demand to work with other parties. However, there is no reason to make a false proclamation such as that the party with the most seats must form government or that a coalition with this or that party is impossible. Just stick to your issues and wait for the vote to be finished.

That’s how democracy works. Wait to hear what the voters decide then figure out who can represent that decision best in the legislature.
