Elections BC Bans the WCWC's "Vote Wild" Newspaper

WCWC:
Yesterday, the Wilderness Committee was given written notice by Elections BC that they are banning the distribution of our "Vote Wild" newspaper as of today. The reason given for suppressing the newspaper is because they've deemed it to be "partisan advertising," as it criticizes the government before an oncoming election. Nowhere in our newspaper does it even mention the names of any political parties, except on the last page where it lists all the websites of the 4 main political parties in BC (BC Liberals, NDP, Green Party, Democratic Reform BC). Nor does it ever say who to vote for or against. In addition, the newspaper (Volume 24, Number 3) is part of a series of regularly published educational newspapers that the WCWC has published roughly six times a year for the past 24 years, millions of copies - it is not a one-time "advertisement".

Is the province equipped to tackle the pine beetle?s long-term impact?
By Ben Parfitt

As many British Columbians know, the province is witnessing one of its biggest logging booms in decades. More trees are falling than ever in the Interior, and will for years to come. But today?s boom presages a dark future wherein resource-dependent communities and the provincial treasury both will be hit hard. Legions of beetles killing millions of pine trees are behind the boom.

BC Vote-Pairing Registry Lets Progressives Cooperate and Avoid Vote Split

Broad Coalition - Victoria: The Broad Coalition has launched its online Vote-Pair Registry so that voters can cooperate to avoid splitting the progressive vote. "Cooperation between progressive voters is a strategy that gives power to people instead of parties," says coalition spokesperson Susan Clarke. "It's an exciting grassroots strategy to avoid another first-past-the-post debacle. Progressive voters deserve better representation in the next provincial legislature." The Broad Coalition is endorsing both Green and NDP constituencies so that voters from both parties can cooperate to elect as many progressive candidates as possible. A Green can vote NDP in one constituency, knowing that an NDP will vote Green in another.

Will STV Voting be Corrupted by Computers?

PEJ News:
Well here we go again.  People just don't seem to get it when you say computer election fraud.   Whenever I talk to STV supporters they seem to go deaf when you say that the process is complex and that computers will be required to figure out who won.  So what; they say.

Why BC's Referendum on STV Voting is So Important

With the provincial election only a month away, we hope the discussion on the referendum on electoral reform will not be drowned out by Liberal-versus-NDP-versus-Green political debate. Gordon Campbell's government deserves credit for giving the Citizens' Assembly on Electoral Reform the rare opportunity to examine our electoral process and make recommendations for changing it. After 10 months of study, research and debate, including 50 public hearings and 1,603 written submissions from the public, the Citizens' Assembly recommended the STV option.
