Letter: Caring about changes to BC voting system

To The Editor:
 
Why should I care if the voting system changes in British Columbia ?
 
I feel I should care because our votes are one of the only ways we can influence important decisions that have to be made collectively.
 
I care because until we have a fair voting system all voices will not be represented in government and the complex problems we face require input from all perspectives.
 
As well, a voting system that accurately represents the votes cast is the foundation of a functional democracy and a necessary first step in dealing with the challenges we face in this province.
 
 I urge you to consider why you should care.
