In regards to the upcoming referendum on Proportional Representation, it should be known that there has been a lot of meddling and misinformation being presented by those persons benefiting from keeping our outdated voting system the way it is.
With one week to go, before ballots come out, BC voters are going to be bombarded with Letters to the Editor; “opinion” pieces containing more opinions than facts, paid ads that allow the person paying to say anything they like, regardless if it’s fact or fiction. As well as, messages from your MLA’s and MP’s who retain their ‘safe seats’ because of the First Past the Post voting system.
Please ask yourself, Is this person benefitting financially from keeping our outdated voting system the way it is? Does this person really care about having a voting system that represents All British Columbians? As PR will make it much easier to vote them out.
