BC Opposition leader Andrew Wilkinson will be in Mission on Thursday, Oct. 11 to make a presentation on the pending referendum (running Oct. 22 to Nov. 30) on proportional representation.
The event is hosted by the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce. Wilkinson will be speaking at the Copper Hall inside the Penny, 33128 First Ave., from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Lunch will be provided. A $10 donation is requested, which will be used to support the work of the Copper Hall.
“Proportional representation could have a dramatic impact on our democratic system and how we elect governments here in B.C., so I think there could be quite a lot of interest,” said Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson.
Wilkinson was first elected MLA in 2013 for a Vancouver riding, and was chosen as party leader earlier this year.
