EDITOR:

Writing from British Columbia re: your comment about the result of the B.C. referendum on the efforts of electoral reform advocates in P.E.I.

The referendum in B.C. was defeated, and the reasons should be informative for P.E.I. The referendum was defeated by a blatantly partisan campaign by the right-wing B.C. Liberals who were desperately afraid for their political future if PR were adopted. They used disinformation and fear-mongering to defeat PR.
