The Process

Using the index at left, under "The Process," you can find out about the workings of the Citizens' Assembly following its foundation in 2003.

The 160 members of the Assembly spent much of 2004, beginning on January 10, learning about electoral systems, listening to public opinion, and finally deciding whether they believe B.C. should have a new electoral system, or retain the current one.

Now that the Assembly has recommended the BC-STV system, it will go to voters in a referendum in the provincial election of May 2005. If voters accept the change, the government promised to introduce enabling legislation so the new system could go into effect for the election of 2009.
