Tabled: March 31, 2008.Stapled in LLBC copy: [Transmittal letter dated March 27, 2008 signed by Leo Perra, Executive Director, British Columbia Electoral Boundaries Commission] (1 leaf)"Submitted to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia on February 14, 2008." [This published version submitted to Legislative Assembly on March 31, 2008]."The report we delivered on February 14, 2008 and the published version that the commission is delivering today are identical in content with the exception of formatting, pictures and a few corrections for typos and grammatical corrections. It would have been the commission's preference to only produce a single version of the report; however, to meet its statutory deadline, the commission submitted the "MS Word" version to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly on February 14". -- Accompanying transmittal letter dated March 27, 2008.To ensure the province's electoral boundaries accurately reflected population change over time, the Electoral Boundaries Commission Act required that a review be undertaken after every second general election. The results of the 2005 referendum on electoral reform also showed great public interest in holding another vote on the STV (single transferable vote) voting model recommended by the British Columbia Citizens' Assembly on Electoral Reform. Under the Electoral Boundaries Commission Amendment Act, 2005 (S.B.C. 2005, c. 30) the 2005 Electoral Boundaries Commission had two tasks. The Commission was to determine what electoral boundaries and representation would look like in the province under an STV system. It was to also examine electoral boundaries and representation under the existing electoral system. With this comparative information the public would be better able to make an informed choice when the next referendum on electoral reform was held. The Act gave the Commission flexibility to recommend up to 85 electoral districts (an increase of six from the current 79 electoral districts) should this be required to protect the representation of northern residents in the Legislature. It also allowed the Commission to recommend up to 85 Members of the Legislative Assembly under STV for the same reason. The Commission must recommend that same number of members under both systems. The Commission was to seek community input through a province-wide consultation before developing its recommendations. It would also have access to up-to-date population data from the 2006 federal census.An initial report was to be submitted to the Speaker by August 15, 2007 and the final report was to be submitted by February 2008. Originally the referendum was to take place in conjunction with the municipal elections in November 2008. On April 27, 2006 Premier Gordon Campbell announced that, due to administrative and cost concerns raised by the Chief Electoral Officer, the referendum would be held in tandem with the general provincial election on May 12, 2009.The Commission’s "Preliminary report", released on October 15, 2007, was not universally well-received. For further details see the listing in this Checklist for the "Preliminary report". Following the release of its "Preliminary report", the Commission held public hearings and received written and oral submissions regarding its proposals for the SMP (single member plurality) and BC-STV (British Columbia - single transferable vote) electoral districts. The final report entitled ‶ Amendments to the preliminary report″ was tabled February 14, 2008. This report made approximately 50 amendments to the original report. ‶ Comparing the commission's final proposals to the Preliminary Report: the number of electoral districts in the Columbia-Kootenay region is increased from three to four; the number of electoral districts in the Vancouver Island and South Coast region is increased from 14 to 15; the number of electoral districts in the North region is unchanged at seven; the number of electoral districts [in] the Cariboo-Thompson region is unchanged at four; and the proposals to add one electoral district in each of the Okanagan, Fraser Valley, Surrey, Burnaby/Tri-Cities, and Vancouver regions are unchanged. This will result in a net increase of four electoral districts, for a total of 83 single member plurality electoral districts. The number of proposed BC-STV electoral districts remains at 20, with the district magnitude of the Columbia-Kootenay electoral district increasing from three to four, and the district magnitude of the Capital Region electoral district increasing from six to seven.″ ( Commission news release: Electoral Boundaries Commission amends its proposals for British Columbia electoral district boundaries, February 14, 2008). The Commissioners, anticipating that politicians may not adopt their report with reduced northern representation, included an appendix with suggested boundaries for the Cariboo and northern ridings. Legislators could then adopt the main report, with an amendment to preserve two northern seats.The Commission report also outlined proposed electoral boundaries under a STV (single transferable vote) electoral system, should British Columbians choose to adopt it. On March 6, 2008 the Liberal Government introduced Bill 6, the ‶ Electoral Reform Referendum 2009 Act″ , requiring the Government to hold a second referendum respecting the single transferable vote electoral system, to be held in conjunction with the next general election on May 12, 2009. For information on the results of the first referendum, held May 17, 2005, see this Checklist under Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform.On March 13, 2008 the Liberal Government moved a motion, approved unanimously by the Opposition New Democratic Party, to adopt the proposals in the Electoral Boundaries Commission final report, with the following alteration: "The proposals for the North and Cariboo-Thompson Regions are not approved and the alternatives contained in Appendix P of the Report relating to these regions are approved in their place." (British Columbia. Legislative Assembly. Votes and proceedings of British Columbia, March 13, 2008, p. 1). The Electoral Districts Act (S.B.C. 2008 c. 14), increasing the current 79 electoral districts to 85 was given royal assent on April 10, 2008.NOTE: This Checklist was published prior to the completion of the electoral boundaries change process. Please refer to the Legislative Library's catalogue for commission reports and related reports of interest published after April 2008.
