Sarah Blyth
Independent Candidate for Vancouver City Council

Testimonial:

I’m voting for Proportional Representation because our current “First Past the Post” system effectively shuts out independent voices from our legislature and council chambers, and puts nearly all the power in the hands of political parties that don’t always put people first.

No person or party has a monopoly on good ideas. Bringing more independent voices into our politics will make for better policy, better decisions and real debate. I hope you’ll join me in supporting proportional representation.
