Nirvana's Novoselic: BC-STV could be "shot heard around the continent"

In a telephone interview today with the Georgia Straight, Nirvana bassist Krist Novolesic spoke of the importance of British Columbians voting for BC-STV.
"This is an opportunity, a rare opportunity, for British Columbia voters to impact American politics... If you vote yes for single transferable vote, that's the shot heard around the continent, OK? I'm serious. People can say, 'They passed it in British Columbia. They're using it in British Columbia'.

"One of the biggest barriers to participation is the single-member district."

Novolesic is coming to BC! On May 1st, he'll be joining BC-STV spokesperson and Citizens' Assembly alumnus Shoni Field at a STV forum to be held at UBC Robson Square, starting at 7:30 p.m.
