Three ways to in­form your­self for the elec­tion

The Daily Courier - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor: With the pro­vin­cial elec­tion tak­ing place May 9, there are three ways for vot­ers to pre­pare:

1. All can­di­dates should be asked: “Do you sup­port pro­por­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tion? What do you and your party com­mit to do to make sure that ev­ery vote counts?” See: fair­vote.ca/bc-par­ties-pr

2. On April 22, Ken Boon, pres­i­dent of the Peace Val­ley Landown­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion, will be speak­ing at 7 p.m. about the en­vi­ron­men­tal and eco­nomic con­se­quences if the Site C dam is built (Earth Day Cof­fee House, Uni­tar­ian Church, 1310 Ber­tram St.) Free ad­mis­sion.

Jour­nal­ist Zoe Duck­low be­gins her April 19 ar­ti­cle at TheTyee.ca: “Halt­ing work on the Site C dam could save Bri­tish Columbians up to $2 bil­lion ac­cord­ing to a re­port from UBC’s Pro­gram on Wa­ter Gover­nance. The re­port says the gov­ern­ment should stop Site C con­struc­tion and send the project to the BC Util­i­ties Com­mis­sion for re­view.”

3. Google “117 BC Lib­eral False­hoods, Boon­dog­gles and Scan­dals: The Com­plete List,” which is avail­able on the Tyee as an on­line ar­ti­cle and a PDF: thetyee.ca/News/2017/04/18/Ty­ee_Lib­er­alList.pdf
