We understand that constituents of Toronto-Centre may be feeling like pawns. Their MPP, former environment minister, Mr. Glen Murray is resigning effective September 1, 2017. Mr. Murray is leaving before the 41st Legislative Assembly of Ontario he was elected to serve by Toronto-Centre is dissolved.
As the links below show, he is not alone.
In our call for a Facelift for Democracy, a written contract between constituents and the MPP/MP they elect is a must. The only acceptable reason for an elected representative to resign is if they have a health issue. Otherwise, they are elected to serve their constituents for the term of the parliament.
