The present state of our provinces electoral system is not nearly sufficient for the political and governmental needs of the citizens of British Columbia. A first-past-the-post voting system accompanied by entirely unregulated campaign contributions poses a unique hazard to the very ideal of democracy. Though debate between the various form of voting and funding of political parties are desired and should be had by the public, there are some methods which are more clearly democratic than others. For fairer electoral systems to be put in place a province-wide discourse on such a subject must be, and largely already is being had. The citizens of British Columbia deserve an implementation of much more democratic systems within our province for a higher standard of quality in governmental representation. Such changes are necessary if we as citizens of British Columbia are devoted to the ideals of democracy and desire more distinct and accurate representation in our legislature.
