After year long deliberations by panel composed of citizens representing a cross section of British Columbians, they recommended a STV system. We had two referendums on going to it and both times, the bone heads turned it down. Now they are back to bitching about the same things that are wrong with FPP. We had our chance and screwed it up because those in power are quite happy with the status quo.

I don't know about BC, but the panel set up by the Ontario Liberals was designed to fail. Perhaps the referendum should be about is the status quo acceptable, instead of suggesting an alternative and doing very little to really educate the broader public.
