NDP Announces Referendum on Electoral Reform
There’s going to be a referendum on electoral reform in British Columbia.
The provincial NDP government has introduced legislation that would allow the referendum before the end of November of next year.
It’s a big part of the Confidence and Supply Agreement the New Democratic Party has with the Green Party. If the referendum passes, the government says proportional representation would replace first-past-the-post in time for the 2021 provincial election.
