Glen P. Robbins - Proportional Representation Hypotheticals, BC Political Entrepreneurs, Buy Local Buy BC
Rolling Stones - Out of Time  Nov 21, 2018

Question #1
Under a new imaginary voting method proposed for British Columbia – a situation occurs where the 3rd place finisher in one of many election constituency races held in the province – is granted the seat representing his or her constituency in the British Columbia Legislature – to accommodate the objectives of fairness and proportional representation in the Legislature. The winner would receive no benefit. Is it fair and reasonable to your way of thinking that a 3rd place finisher be granted victory?
Yes    38 %
No    52 %
Question #2
Under a new imaginary voting method proposed for British Columbia – a situation occurs where the 2nd place finisher in the election race – loses to the 1st place finisher by 1 percent – is granted the seat representing his or her constituency in the British Columbia Legislature – to accommodate the objectives of fairness and proportional representation in the Legislature. The winner would receive no benefit. Is it fair and reasonable that this 2nd place finisher - - losing by 1 percent - - be granted victory?
Yes    51 %
No    41 %
Question #3
Would you be willing to amend BC Election Act through BC Finance – whereby a one time Tax Credit of $100,000 is provided to any ‘brand new party made in BC beginning 2019’ – able to obtain (1%) of the total vote in a provincial general election, and where total expenditures to obtain that (1%) exceeded $100,000---an approach taken to make more British Columbians become political entrepreneurs and to work hard to get their message out to the Public?
Yes    40 %
No    19 %
Question #4
Are you willing to support a “Buy Local Buy BC” campaign – beginning through Christmas holidays 2018 – as part of overall promotion to ensure BC becomes the number 1 economy in the country ?
Yes    57 %
No    20 %
