Electoral Reform town hall in Smithers at the Old Church tonight at 7, discussing changes to the voting system

Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen says so far the town hall meetings on electoral reform across the northwest have had record turnout.

Cullen encourages voters to come out and not only learn about the proposed changes to the first past-the-post system, but to discuss how, and if, they want the system changed.

“Every bit of feedback and every opinion we’ll put into one report that gets delivered to the committee in which I sit. Because we’ll be getting reports from MPs from across the country, talking about things like; do we need a referendum, does it have to be right away, can it be after a couple of elections,” or if voters support the Liberal’s reform – looking at ranked ballots, proportional representation, mandatory and online voting.

“This is a large part consultation and education,” says Cullen.

You can have your say tonight at 7 at the Old Church in Smithers on the corner of King St. and First Ave.

It’s expected to last a little over an hour.
