Proportional Representation: Opinions For and Against

Two BCRTA Members Offer Thoughts on PR

British Columbia is having a referendum on what voting system we should use for provincial elections. The referendum is being held by mail from October 22 to November 30, 2018. Registered voters will get a voting package in the mail from Elections BC between October 22 and November 2, 2018.

There has been interest from BCRTA members to discuss the merits of Proportional Representation. As a member-led non-profit association, it is not the role of BCRTA to take a partisan position on political issues. But we do advocate for the well-being of our members, and effective democracy is something we all desire. So in the interests of fairness and balance, we’ve invited two BCRTA members with differing opinions to each make their case.
