Three ways to inform yourself for the election
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
