No marginal victory

Greg at democraticSPACE reports that the Ontario Citizens' Assembly on Electoral Reform has voted overwhelmingly (84%-16%) to endorse a MMP PR system over the status quo.

In principle, this should be a strong enough showing to keep the proposal moving the right direction. But the big question as to the proposal's ultimate success remains whether or not Ontario's Libs and Cons will launch an all-out fight against what this sampling of citizens clearly saw as a major improvement for the province.
