Opinion: BC's proportional representation referendum is deeply flawed

Registered voters are expected to comb through their mail for a complicated voting package that, among other strange aspects, requires you to use black ink (not blue!) to mark your ballot or risk having your vote disqualified.

As of the latest report, just 1% of registered voters have sent in their ballots ahead of the November 30th deadline for this mail-in referendum. And that’s deeply concerning, because the stakes could not be any higher.

So why should you be concerned about this referendum, and the results that will become known in early December? Well, allow me to share my perspective.

The process is deeply flawed



PR voting system would lead to bigger, more expensive provincial governments in B.C.
