Tyee Poll: Who Do You Trust in the Electoral Reform Debate?

It’s only about 30 days now until the ballots go in the mail in B.C.’s referendum on proportional representation.

The leader of the BC Liberal Party has vowed to make defeating proportional representation a top priority.

The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association is trying to invalidate the referendum in court.

Millionaire Jim Shepard ran pricy full-page ads in newspapers across B.C. opposing the referendum and proportional representation.

Clearly, the stakes are high for those who benefit from our current first-past-the-post electoral system.

Who do you think is most determined to stop pro rep, and who do you think is the most trustworthy source of information about it?

Fair Vote Canada BC — a non-partisan, grassroots citizens campaign for pro-rep — will use your answers to inform their strategy and invite you to stay informed about their campaign in the weeks ahead.

* Please note that all poll answers will be publicly viewable, but anonymous.

Fill out this week's poll.
