British Columbia's Provincial Liberals Announce Their Top Priority: British Columbia's Provincial Liberals

It is not a surprise that threatened parties oppose reform. What is surprising is to see them admit just how important disproportional representation is to them.
BC Liberal leadership candidate Dianne Watts wrote:
If we do not defeat this referendum, there will be no majority, there will be forever a minority of BC Liberals…. Defeating proportional representation is my #1 priority. I am hell-bent on defeating it.
Not health care.
Not economic growth and prosperity.
Not the People. Nor its will.
