The referendum is part of our Confidence and Supply Agreement with the B.C. NDP. During the 2017 election, the B.C. Greens campaigned to implement a system of proportional representation, which we would have done if we had formed a majority government. However, the B.C. NDP ran on a platform of holding a referendum and campaigning on the “Yes” side. Since we didn’t form a majority government, we felt the most democratic thing to do was to go forward with a referendum.
