Herewith my thanks to the Citizens’ Assembly for
their admirable research and studies into the subject of electoral
reform for BC.
I strongly favour a system that results in MLAs dedicated to
specific constituencies, because it motivates them to know their
local issues well and hopefully enables them to bring such
information to the attention of the Legislature.
Just as strongly, I favour correcting BC’s tendency
to a widely swinging pendulum of polarity that repeatedly returns
strong parliamentary majorities that nonetheless are far from
reflecting the actual support of the voting population.
Since some variety of a Mixed Member Proportional [MMP]
system seems to address both of my concerns, I am adding
my voice in support of such a proposal to the
Legislature. There are no meetings that I know of, near
enough for me to attend, hence this letter instead.
