Maclean's: Andrew Coyne--a shorter explanation of support for BC-STV

Earlier this week, Andrew Coyne wrote a lengthy piece about why he support the Single Transferable Vote in British Columbia's referendum on voting reform.

Today, Mr. Coyne provides a shorter piece on his blog for those of you who want a brief explanation why he supports BC-STV.

If you live in BC and you are unsure about supporting the Single Transferable Vote, give it a try. If you like it, that will be great. If after a couple of elections you do not like STV, then you can always contact an MLA to change the voting system to a different proportional system or switch back to the current one.

If you choose the current voting system and you find that it does not suit your needs, you won't get another chance at voting reform for at least another 20 years.

Vote for the Single Transferable Vote on Tuesday.
(It's the choice shown on the bottom of the ballot.)

Paul Wells has just endorsed BC-STV too! So that's two key figures, including the editor, of Macleans Magazine.

That's great!

I think if we keep getting people to read these comments, we'll get the support of at least 60%.

If every supporter can print 100 copies of Andrew Coyne's short explanation and then deliver them to people. We can improve our chances in winning!

Vote for BC-STV!
