Proportional respresentation vote a waste of money

Thank God, the former B.C. Liberal government left a huge surplus for the minority NDP government can splurge on using B.C. taxpayers for complete foolishness.

The mail in ballot vote cost B.C. taxpayers $15 million dollars that had a voter response of only 42 per cent. Even though the deck was stacked from the beginning in hopes that the NDP/Greens would win what they wanted, and money poured into the pro-PR campaign from the NDP friends and organizations from across the border, the referendum proved fatal for the NDP. Total votes was 1,378,753 with 845,235 at 61.30 per cent voting no, and 533,518 at 38.70 per cent voting yes.

Out of the 1,378,753 votes cast, only 779,680 voting taxpayers answered question two on the ballot, because as question two was flawed from the beginning, no one really knew anything about the different options of the three choices given. John Horgan’s home riding of Langford-Juan de Fuca voted 49.14 per cent no, and 50.86 per cent yes. Andrew Weaver’s home riding of Oak Bay-Gordon Head voted 46.53 per cent no and 53.47 per cent yes. Andrew Wilkinson’s home riding of Vancouver-Quilchena voted 70.30 per cent no and 29.70 per cent yes.

B.C. Green party, Sonia Furstenau’s home riding of Cowichan Valley, voted 52.82 per cent no, and 47.18 per cent yes. B.C. Green party, Adam Olsen’s home riding of Saanich North and the Islands, voted 48.62 per cent no and 51.38 per cent yes.

Only five out of the 11 NDP held ridings on Vancouver Island voted in favour of proportional representation.

All 42 Liberal held ridings in B.C. voted no on proportional representation.

Only 14 out of 41 NDP held ridings voted yes on proportional representation.

Out of the three B.C. Green held ridings, only two voted for proportional representation.

The best known B.C. premier in B.C. history is former Social Credit premier WAC Bennett. His definition of the NDP was “The NDP could never operate a peanut stand”.

That has just been proven in this foolish from the beginning mail in ballot referendum costing B.C. taxpayers $15 million dollars. Be sure to pay more in some kind of tax in the new year budget to recover the B.C. taxpayer’s loss of their money.

Unbelievable!
