Minister, Castlegar United Church
As a parent, I’m concerned about the long-term wellbeing of our province. I believe proportional representation gives our decision-makers better incentive for long-term planning, rather than simply positioning for the next election. And as a faith leader, I see proportional representation as our best option to ensure we care for the most vulnerable among us and give voice to the marginalized. I see this referendum as this generation’s moment to set us on a new course toward a fairer British Columbia that includes all.
