In regards to the upcoming referendum on proportional representation, it should be known that there has been a lot of meddling and misinformation being presented by those persons benefiting financially from keeping our outdated voting system the way it is.
The Pro Rep fact checker site has been recently hacked twice. With ballots already mailed out, voters are going to be bombarded with letters to the editor, “opinion” pieces containing more opinions than facts, paid ads that allow the person paying to say anything they like, regardless if it’s fact or fiction. As well as messages from your MLAs and MPs who retain their ‘safe seats’ because of First Past the Post.
Please ask yourself, is this person benefitting financially from keeping our outdated voting system the way it is? Does this person really care about having a voting system that represents all British Columbians? As PR will make it much easier to vote them out.
