The mayors of Fort St. John and Dawson Creek have added their names, to the growing list of BC-STV supporters.

Mayor Lantz is quoted as saying, the new voting system would allow us to move away from the antiquated party system and, vote for the person, not the party.

He calls it democracy in its purest form and, he says it will ensure our political representation will be more fair and equitable.

Dawson Creek’s Mayor, Mike Bernier says, after looking into the proposed change he also believes it will offer all British Columbians, the opportunity to ensure, they have the correct representation, in Parliament.

For the second consecutive BC election the Single Transferable Vote system will be the subject of a referendum tomorrow.

To be passed, it will require 60% voter approval…about 2.5% more than it received in 2005.
