Refine the top ideas

The Ontario Liberal Party (OLP) launched Common Ground to open up its policy development process to Ontarians and tap into their diverse views and collective wisdom. Since launching in November 2017, 14,000 Ontarians have participated in the process, submitting over 500 policy ideas. The seven Phase 1 live policy discussions garnered a total of 59,000 views.
