The Liberal government of BC has given its citizens an unprecedented opportunity to make a decision about electoral reform. We need to take advantage of this opportunity by learning all we can about STV-BC and making an INFORMED decision on May 17. The counter arguments I've been hearing about lately are based more on disinformation or ignorance (by which I mean people who haven't taken the time to find out).
There are lots of web sites on STV but here's an interesting way of describing the actual process by using a situation of selecting a committee at a boys' school.
STV is not perfect. Implementing it will not be easy. Predicting how government will operate under the system is impossible. But keeping a bad system in place just because we've always had it is not logical. Status-quo is just too easy and I think it's an uphill battle for change.
Please note that despite the announcement from Elections BC this commentary in no way constitutes advertising. It is personal opinion only (duh-its a blog!).
