Last night, My wife told me that I am obsessed with BC-STV.
Thinking about her remark today, I fear she is absolutely right. There are two things I am increasingly passionate about:
1) Getting information out about this important referendum on the way we vote in BC - from both sides of the issue.
2) Explaining to people my rationale for voting Yes.
There is no doubt that BC-STV, like an electoral system, will have many problems. But, to me, it solves more problems that causes.
A lot of sane people cannot sit through an all candidates forum in any election - too partisan, too nasty. STV is a great step in bringing more civility and compromise to our political leadership.
In my view, the more representation better. STV attempts to create a system where more people feel represented in politics. Yes, government might be slower but ultimately I think it will be better.
