Liberals win back to back majority in Ontario, 50% of the population did not vote

Fifty per cent of the voters took the time and effort to hand the ruling Liberals a new majority. Fifty four per cent voted on electoral reform- the majority of those that voted rejected the proportional representation alternative.

What happened to those that did not vote? Has the political process become so irrelavant or jaded that this "not interested" has been lost to the democratic process. This is a sad example of the loss it or loss it principle . The question becomes who really represents these disinfected individuals who have chosen not to participate in the fundamental democratic process?

Good, bad or indifferent -Ontario will reap what it has sown for the next 4 years
