In other news, the Northern Ontario Party is ready to release their platforms and these will come out in a separate media release this week.  One of the highlights includes the party passing a platform that an elected NOP MPP will be required to vote on issues in parliament on how the majority of their constituents wish him/her to vote. There will be no ‘party whip’. The party will develop a standard polling method that we commit to using prior to all votes in the provincial legislature. Unlike the other political parties of Ontario, the Northern Ontario Party is committed to truly representing the needs and wants of the citizens of Northern Ontario.
