This has been a really fun project.
I brainstormed the idea with my friend Dayla Hart; and she took the lead as director while I pulled out bins of pieces and started building sets. I’ll write up a little more on the creative process soon, but wanted to put this up now. With the Municipal Elections over, I hope that voters across the province will turn the attention to the extremely important issue of Electoral Reform.
Election BC has an excellent, in-depth and non-partisan explanation of both questions in this referendum and the potential new systems.
I also recommend Fair Vote Canada’s perspective, which is strongly in favour of Proportional Representation. Or my long rant in favour.
And last, if you have already heard on the radio that the skies will fall if we change our voting system, it’s worth having a look at this excellent Fact Check Site.
If you want a fast and simple explanation of all three new systems, I suggest this one.
