Proportional representation rally at 17 Street Bridge in Courtenay Saturday

Fair Vote BC’s call for a Day of Action is being answered by Fair Vote Comox Valley on Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to noon on the northeast side of the 17th Street Bridge.

Are you concerned about your student loan debt? Do you need access to affordable housing? Do you want the province to act now to curb climate change? Are you frustrated by politicians who care more about staying in power than the needs of voters?

These are just some of the issues that proportional representation could resolve.

Come out and join other like-minded people who feel that changing B.C.’s electoral system is necessary. There will be information to share and signs to hold, urging honks of support as cars drive by.

The Day of Action also includes canvassers heading out to Puntledge to speak with voters later in the day.

If your group wants to learn more about proportional representation, contact Fair Vote Comox Valley at fairvotecomoxvalley@gmail.com to arrange for a speaker.
