Toronto may not know the results of today’s election until later tonight, but some in the city are already looking toward 2018.
According to Global News, the provincial government is considering shortening the length of municipal elections in Ontario.
Ted McMeekin, the province’s minister of municipal affairs, told Global News that he believes municipal campaigns currently “drag on for far too long.” He’s not wrong.
He says that province is oscillating between cutting municipal elections in half so that they start in June, or, perhaps even more drastically, so that they start after Labour Day.
Good stuff. But while you’re at it, make sure we get ranked ballots as well. Thanks, Ted! [via Global Toronto]
