    Kamloops Chamber and Proportional Representation


    Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce acknowledges a resounding defeat of BC’s proportional representation referendum.

    Background:
    From the outset, the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce’s concern has been about a flawed process in the structure of the referendum. The Chamber believes that BC residents have responded accordingly.

    Quotes:
    Joshua Knaak, President of the Board of Directors, Kamloops Chamber of Commerce:
    “Notwithstanding concerns with the process, this is now the third time this issue has been debated and voted upon. The Chamber hopes that our governments will now move on from this issue and take steps to address issues within our democracy and respect the ongoing wishes of the BC residents – to maintain the FPTP system.”
