It looks like people in the northwest are favoring a proportional voting system.
That’s according to 81 percent of 558 respondents polled at a telephone electoral reform town hall this week.
The poll also found 39 per cent favor a referendum, with 41 per cent saying they’d like to try a new system prior to any referendum.
Vice Chair of the Electoral Reform Committee, and Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen, has been pushing for a proportional system as the NDP Democratic Reform Critic.
“The mood for change is very strong…the change that people want to see is overwhelmingly towards a fair voting system,” says Cullen.
He says committee members from across party lines are still collecting information from town halls across the country.
