*Every* main argument of the #NoBCProRep campaign is misleading somehow. Pilon's essay… is devastating in understated academic terms but the public debate is even starker.

Here comes a thread where I respond to each of @NoBCProRep's last 10 tweets.

Basically true, according to… . But in same link, aside from the referendum, 57% of those polled in BC support #ProRep. ≥50% in each province polled except Manitoba. That is, 100% have some opinion, albeit unsure on referendum.

FPTP is far more prone to policy whiplash than PR. Look at 1996 and 2001 elections: first NDP get 52% of seats w/ 39% of votes, then Liberals get 97% of seats w/ 58% of votes.

Successive #ProRep governments would have more overlap; BETTER stability.
