I’ve spent some time today trying to figure how to vote on the BC-STV. It is not a “no-brainer” decision.
At it’s simplest, the current 81 MLAs in 81 ridings would change to 81 MLA’s distributed over 20 ridings. The ridings would have multiple MLAs. For example, the North Shore would have 4 MLAs.
Here are some sites that I’ve found helpful
- The most balanced site I’ve found so far is http://www.understandingstv.ca/
- The Yes site is http://stv.ca/join
- The No site is http://www.nostv.org/
- The group that put it together http://www.citizensassembly.bc.ca/public
