Why I am Pro-proportional Representation

In British Columbia, we are finally getting serious about replacing the first past the post electoral system with one that will provide proportional representation.  Why?  For starters, the idea that our elected officials are representative of the desires of the voters just seems like a good idea.  Secondly, gerrymandering is quite frankly evil and should not be allowed to continue in BC (or anywhere).

There are some who say that the new electoral system will not allow our BC government to function at 100% efficiency.  I would state that no system can guarantee such, including the current one.

If you have not yet mailed in your ballot, please consider doing so.  Make our politicians represent what we want.
