It is difficult for our volunteers to attend all of
the community events. Over 720,000 voters rejected BC-STV
in the 2005 referendum so we are hopeful that many people
will volunteer to speak out. Please feel free to print
materials from this website and use them in your discussions.
There are bound to be people in any group who voted
against STV in the last referendum and who will be willing
to contribute to small group discussions.
