John Horgan may not be in Penticton this week, but the Penticton NDP Constituency Association is inviting everyone to the next best thing, getting together to watch the pro rep debate Thursday evening at the Barley Mill Pub.
Horgan will be squaring off against opposition leader Andrew Wilkinson to debate the pros and cons of proportional representation, and the Penticton NDP has arranged to have it show on the big screen at the Barley Mill, starting at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 8.
Organizer Tina Lee says it’s a great chance to learn more about the referendum and share a pint over some political banter.
The referendum on switching to a proportional representation voting system or staying with the current first-past-the-post model continues until Nov. 30, when all voting packages have to be returned to Elections BC by 4:30 p.m. If you haven’t received a voting package, you have until midnight, Nov. 23, 2018 to request one.
More information about the referendum and the various voting models is available online at Elections BC.
