Province to allow ranked ballots in local elections

    Wow, do they really think this is a better system? Out of the whole province only 3400 submissions, doesn’t seem like a majority to me to make legislation. Sounds more like a waste of tax $’s and time. I think I need a better understanding of why they want to do this.
