Why We Need to Change How We Vote
If a party’s candidates only win 40% of the vote, they shouldn’t win all the power – 40% of the vote should mean 40% of the seats. You should never have to hold your nose and not vote for your preferred candidate, just because you’re worried about someone else you like less getting in. And no matter where you live in BC, you shouldn’t be shut out of government, the way the Interior is now. It’s time for your vote to really count, to make politicians more accountable to you. It’s time for a proportional voting system that will make sure all voices are included in government.
