The STVerdict!

In large rural constituencies, it is possible that most or all elected MLAs may come from a major town within that riding. Why? Because most of the voters would come from the same town. The same could apply to city constituencies like in Vancouver, where west side residents are more likely to vote than eastsiders, for example. Thus, electing city councilors from their locale. (This is the same argument of ‘western alienation’ that Western Canada has been clamouring for years!)
