Tired of skewed system; voting yes for PR

Now that the local election is over, I’m excited to cast a “yes” vote for a better voting system in B.C. when we get the ballots in the mail.

I’m tired of British Columbians not getting what we voted for under an outdated system that consistently skews the results in favour of one party or another.

I’m also unimpressed with the fear mongering of the “no” side, which masks the fact it is led by the same political insiders who have most benefited from a rigged system all these years.

I’m voting “yes” to a system that better reflects the will of the people so that politicians will actually need to listen to people. I hope you’ll join me.
