Live Streaming of BC-STV Conference

Happening now (Jan 10 and 11). The conference is full, dinner sold out.

Electoral reformers are watching BC to see if, this time, we can break the 60 percent threshold which was imposed by the provincial government and supported by the opposition NDP. We made it to 58 percent in 2005, the largest vote in favour of electoral reform in Canada. That we came so close last time is why BC is holding another referendum May 12th this year.

The big parties DON'T like STV. It puts far greater power into the hands of voters.

(They've broken for lunch until 1 pm - see conference agenda.)
