CONSENSUS ONTARIO - OUR PRINCIPLES:
Principle of Non-Partisan (Party-less) Democracy - This is a system of representative government that returns to the original definition of democracy: “Government by the people”, not government by the party. Therefore universal and periodic elections will take place without reference to political parties. Consensus Ontario will work towards the removal of all parties (including itself) from politics in Ontario and replace it with independent, elected representatives who answer to their constituents.
Principle of Consensus Government - A Consensus Government is one where the Ontario premier and Cabinet are chosen from within the elected legislature without reference to any party affiliation. Consensus Governments arise in non-partisan democracies in which all candidates for election are truly independent and committed to representing the people in their respective ridings, as practiced in Northern Canada.
Principle of strengthening the ability of Municipalities to provide local services and in doing so be more accountable to their constituents.
