Have there been any public opinion polls on this question yet? Kevintoronto 21:37, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Not that I can find. There are three organizations that I know of that do regular political polling in BC:
None of these have any polls on the subject. - Jord 14:07, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)

General[edit]

I wish to flag that I have done considerable new work on this Wikipedia page, using what references I could find on line. While I have made many changes of a significant nature, I have not discussed these on this Talk page (which now appears inactive), except for the change noted under the "Timeline" heading below at an earlier stage. Should anyone want to track the changes made and the reasons for them, please use the View History page. Basically, my aim was to make this Wikipedia page as complete as possible and to include enough analysis so that readers could understand the result, considering that the importance of this referendum as the one which came the closest to yielding a binding result in favour of reform in Canada in the 2000s. --Reallavergne (talk) 19:59, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Timeline[edit]

I moved the timelines up for improved flow and beefed it up considerably. However, I removed the bullet about the new party created in Jan. 2005, because all of the other bullets were about the Assembly, and its work, so it did not make sense to have a bullet out of the blue about the creation of a new party. It just seems like a distraction Here is the removed text, so that it is easy to find if anyone feels really strongly about it for reasons that I don't understand: "January 15, 2005 — The Democratic Reform British Columbia party is created out of a merger of the British Columbia Democratic Coalition and the All Nations Party of British Columbia. The party also boasts the support of key elements of the Reform Party of British Columbia. One of this party's main goals is the support of BC-STV."

NOT BC-STV[edit]

The system being voted on in 2005 was not the same as that voted on yesterday (May 12, 2009). This article needs revising, as for one thing the 2005 system was just "STV" and was a pretty simple elimination/preferential ballot, much like the one used in the '52-'53 general elections . The new one involved mega-constituences and proportional rep formauls.Skookum1 (talk) 16:59, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
