Referendum challenge quashed
VANCOUVER (CP) — British Columbia’s top court has dismissed an application by a group trying to halt the province’s referendum on electoral reform.
The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association asked for leave to appeal a lowercourt decision that in August denied an interim injunction after allegations the B.C. government undertook a rushed process for fundamental changes to the democratic system.
B.C. Appeal Court Justice Gregory Fitch says there was no merit to the association’s argument that disputed the lower court’s ruling.
