Off the Cluff: Iain Black

The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade has come out against proportional representation - here's why

The proportional representation referendum is in full swing, with ballots due to Elections BC on November 30. The latest polling shows that support for the current system is just a single point ahead of support for prop rep – meaning this referendum could go either way.

Iain Black is the President and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade and was a provincial cabinet minister the last time British Columbians voted on electoral reform.

Iain joined Rick via Skype from downtown Vancouver.
