Electoral fairness

Editor:

My congratulations go to BC Liberals and Christie Clark for a successful election of their leader.

The BC Liberals have adopted a policy of fairness to elect a leader. The preferential ballot used ensured that the winner needed over 50% of support in order to win, instead of only 38% of support that would have otherwise been required. Since fairness is a matter of policy for the party, perhapsĀ  the rest of us may expect that this same fairness will soon be applied in the election of MLAs.

I am very much encouraged since Christie Clark is a supporter of electoral reform and preferential balloting.
