‘Til the BC vote. Woo hoo! I’m so excited! But I have a decision to make people. Not Liberal vs. NDP – that I think I now have figured out. It’s the other question on the ballot: Do I vote in favor of STV? What is STV? See this website: http://www.electoral-reform.org.uk/votingsystems/systems3.htm#STV.
In BC, it would mean electing up to 7 MLAs, and the ridings would be larger. David Suzuki is in favor of it. I don’t know. I think it would be interesting to try it. Let me know what you guys think. And I must say that it’s refreshing to actually be able to vote on something significant such as democratic reform.
And a note to the men’s hockey team: what the heck was today’s performance? Absolutely ridiculous. Either start forechecking or fly home, boys.
