(QUEENS PARK) - On Thursday September 17th MPP Randy Hillier debated his MPP Recall legislation in the hopes of bringing more accountability to the Ontario Legislature. Hillier's bill would allow constituents to recall their MPPs via petition if it could gain signatures from 25% of the number of voters from the last election.
Much to the dismay of many across the province the Bill was defeated in the house. The bill would have add a much needed layer of accountability to the members of the Ontario legislature. Many jurisdictions including British Columbia, the British Parliament and many States throughout the United States already have recall legislation in place.
