What is the scope of the Assembly’s mandate?
The Citizens’ Assembly will be looking specifically at how we turn votes into seats in the British Columbia legislature. This means it will not be examining such issues as campaign financing, voting machines, electronic voting electoral boundaries, campaign advertising, etc.
According to the Terms of Reference, the Citizens’ Assembly will consider only electoral models that are "consistent with the constitution of Canada and the Westminster parliamentary system." A document with the Terms of Reference that speak most directly to the Assembly's mandate is available here (PDF, 25K).
