With the small budgets people have for running local elections, that's a recipe for the same problem we have with our Hamilton municipal elections - public office becomes the field of local celebrities just because they've got the name recognition.

I'm already annoyed by the revolving door between CH/Cable14 and city council. I don't want that in parliament.

Parties allow candidates to pool their resources to advertise their common platform.

The only way I'd support voting for a person instead of a party would be if we did it nation wide and gave that person power proportional to their votes... so instead of the Conservative party having 160ish seats in the house, you fire all those MPs and directly give Harper 40% of the power in the House.

And that kind of system would be a little crazy.
