The announcement last week of the selection of the final
presenters makes me very suspicious of this entire process. There
is little doubt about the need for an overhaul of our
"first-past-the-post" system. As I'm sure you are all aware in the
last BC election - Gordon Campbell's Liberals received 58% of the
popular vote yet received 97 percent of the seats.
Mixed member proportional representation (MMP), an electoral
system with a proven track record of producing fairer results,
is, in my opinion, our best (only) choice.
It scares me to think Nick Loenen's proposal (Preferential-Plus)
] is even being discussed.
