Do BC elections put the right 'representatives' in the legislature? Many want the system changed. And now change is being proposed.
BC residents will participate in an electoral reform vote this fall. You will be asked two questions:
1. Which should British Columbia use for elections to the Legislative Assembly?
- The current First Past the Post (FPTP) voting system. or
- A proportional representation(PR) voting system.
2. If British Columbia adopts a proportional representation voting system, which of the following voting systems do you prefer?
- Dual Member Proportional (DMP)
- Mixed Member Proportional (MMP)
- Rural-Urban PR
- Fair Vote Canada in BC is pro - Proportional Representation. They say that first-past-the-post delivers majority governments to parties with 39% of the vote. With proportional representation, if a party earns 30% of the vote, they get 30% of the seats.
- The “No Proportional Representation in BC Society” favours keeping our current, “First Past the Post” or “FPT
- Get involved and participate in the conversations and debates.
