Hi everyone. Here is a public service announcement regarding STV--Jamie Lee.

Public Rally For Democracy And BC-STV -- May 8

On May 17, voters in BC have the opportunity to change BC's electoral
system to a system that's much better. A system that was chosen by
ordinary citizens, such as yourself, who made up BC's Citizens Assembly on
Electoral Reform. That system is BC-STV which is proportional
(reflecting the popular vote), is fairer (because all votes count), and gives
strong local representation.

If you support BC-STV or want to find out more about it, we urge you to
join environmentalist and broadcaster David Suzuki, radio host Rafe
Mair, former UK Liberal Party leader Lord David Steel, Vancouver city
councillor Sam Sullivan, former ICBC president Nick Geer, BC Citizens?
Assembly member Shoni Field, Fair Vote Canada director Dennis Pilon,
political scientist Sabina Singh Arnott, and others:
