"Strong Economy, Secure Tomorrow" advertising missing on Transit Plebiscite, but that's okay, the Mayor's have the last say before X

A Vancouver Sun Letter to the Editor writer is asking Why there is a YES side campaign on the Translink Ballot.

Ballot contains Yes side ad (second page, last opinion)

I received my Metro Vancouver Transportation and Transit Plebiscite ballot today and I was very surprised to find the top half of the ballot paper devoted to what I would consider to be Yes-side advertising.

How can this be considered a fair vote if the ballot itself carries what amounts to a political message? One has to wonder what other problems exist at Elections BC if they can’t even make what should be a simple ballot fair?



Past Practice on a Referendum:  No First, Second or Third Party advertising

 Past Municipal Election:

Next time around ......
