They did a great social engineering job with the referendum.
It was never about electoral reform.
It was all about tricking people into believing that a 40% minority veto was ok.
Anyway , mission acomplished! The powers that be have one more layer of protection from public interference. Campbells 60% supermajority (in reality exactly the same as issueing 1.5 votes to supporters of the status quo) has now been legitimized in the eyes of the canadian public by 2 referenda here and one in ontario and one in PEI.
So it is the defacto new referendum rule for the country.
Electoral reform by citizens assembly and referendum is now totally and absolutely dead.
The only likely possibility now is one of the provincial NDP groups (Not in BC because the NDP is not into reform here) offering to impliment electoral reform as part of their platform for their election to power.
Is any provincial NDP party ready to make that move?
If STV gets more than 50% in this referendum, and the NDP does badly, there is a small posibility of a coup in the provincial ndp by reform minded people. (People willing to impliment electoral reform rather than talk about it ) unlikely but possible.
