Thank You British Columbia

For sparing us any electoral reform conversations for a bit. The margin that STV was defeated was sizable but frankly, predictable. It is increasingly clear that the 2005 referendum was the anomaly. With the freak elections of 1996 and 2001 further in the rear view mirror, the margin last night was comparable to the results seen in Ontario and PEI. STV is dead, and it deserves its fate. Strange that the histrionics that we saw after the MMP debate didn't re-emerge today. I guess there's some resignation from the Fair Vote crew today.
