No it ain't. The PR referendum will fail just as the two previous ones did. PR is a daft Marxists scheme to guarantee their butts get to sit and collect fat salaries. That's all it is.

The problem is not how the electoral system works, the problem is how the party system works.

The crooked grinning fool Horgan lied to everyone and is now trying steal taxpayer $$ to fund his Marxist political apparatchiks. Horgan is also trying ensure that only the NDP, Greens, and Liberals can ever compete in provincial elections. What a lying thief!

The NDP are trying to destroy our democracy! Stop the corrupt NDP hacks now!

It is simple MJ.

Winners win elections. Dave Barrett WON and election. Mike Harcourt WON an election.

Sad sack losers like John Horgan can't win, so they whine about the rules and the system, and having usurped government try to change the rules and steal money from the public and guarantee themselves fat salary jobs. Absolutely unacceptable! Especially after the grinning fool Horgan specifically stated no taxpayer money for political parties, and now he wants to steal money from everybody - just like the crooked NDP have been stealing union dues for years! Enough with the thievery! The petty thieves in the NDP know they are losers, and that without forced union dues they can't raise enough $$ to be relevant - which they aren't. All the NDP has had for decades is "Noooo".

Dave Barrett changed a lot of things. He was a winner. He didn't try such crooked stunts.

Mike Harcourt changed some things. He was a winner. He didn't try such crooked stunts.

But the grinning fool Johnny and crew, well they couldn't win, so they want to rig the game. That's the height of corruption. Entirely unacceptable.

I've said it before but it needs restating that pressprogress is an alt-left rag that is filled with whacked out articles....like this one. Horrible people spreading lies and their extreme left wing slanted views.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

why would it happen? It's a really stupid idea being pumped by really stupid people.
Remember who is truly to blame for this insanely stupid trade war with Alberta - all of you people who voted for the NDP in the last election. Never let it happen again.

A shortage of politicians? I can live with that :biggrin: . And Dianne is not as smart as some people think she is if she doesn't know that minority governments are the only ones that have ever got any GOOD legislation passed in this country.

With this GDP arrangement we have a hint of what future governments will look like with PR and it's pretty ugly.

We have a difference of opinion and are able to have equal time to express those opinions on social media. That's democracy. Having one political party having the majority of seats and being able to veto every good bill tabled by opposition members is undemocratic.

What you call undemocratic the majority of voters call a "mandate" from the people, something we can forgive you for not understanding, given the NDP don't have one.

^^As it stands right now, a government can have a majority with only 39% of the popular vote, and that has to change.
