Link to recording of Rev. angel's webcast

Hi PAOV,

in case you missed Rev. angel's recent webcast on Confronting Oppression: How to Practice/ How Not to Practice.
We have the &feature=youtu.be" target="_blank">recording at an unlisted youtube link on the Stand.earth channel. It's unlisted because we're hoping in the near future to host the recordings of Rev. angel's webcasts with Stand.earth with more context than just having the webcasts on youtube but also want to get all of you the recording now, so the unlisted link is a temporary measure.

Our print media report sets off the alarm - help us ramp up now!



Fund a social media ad campaign for proportional representation!

Dear FVC Supporter,

A few days ago, we released the results of a three month study of the electoral reform opinion columns in BC's mainstream print media. With just a few days until ballots go out, the results should set off the alarm bells for all of us working for a fairer electoral system in BC.

Overall, 66% of the opinion columns were negative. Even worse, the newspapers reaching the most BC voters by far - the Postmedia papers - ran a whopping 85% negative opinion columns.

Paov --


First off - thank you!

With giving thanks in mind, we would like to say a huge thank you for your support for our work to protect our public health care system in court - and we also have a number of updates for you.

Without your support, we would not have been able to continue to hold Brian Day and Cambie Surgeries to account, both in the courtroom and in the media. We are working to ensure that not only are Brian Day’s false promises (that two-tier health care will improve wait times) are debunked, but that the public knows what this case is really about: removing the protections that ensure patients can get care based...

Heres how we can win the BC referendum on pr



Dear FVC Supporter,

A recent Angus Reid poll suggests that the upcoming BC referendum could go either way.

There is a strong contingent of popular support for proportional representation (Pro Rep) (34%) but almost as many who oppose it (31%). Remarkably, 34% of voters remain uncertain.

I am writing to you to ask you as a supporter to personally engage to help us win this historical campaign by talking to as many people you know as possible about Pro Rep – your relatives, friends, neighbors and co-workers, in particular those people who remain uncertain or who may have been misguided by the scaremongering or misinformation tactics being used by opponents of electoral reform.

There are tens of thousands of us, and people who know us trust our judgement more than they trust those with a vested interest in first-past-the-post. If each of us takes it upon ourselves to talk to 5, 10, 20 or 50 people that we know, we will quickly reach the threshold of Pro Rep support needed to win.

Can you come to Vancouver to canvass Oct 15-29? Want a lawn sign?



Can you come to Vancouver to canvass for proportional representation between October 15-29? And a reminder about lawn signs!

Dear FVC Supporter,

In about 18 days, the ballots are mailed out in BC's referendum on proportional representation.

The most recent polling put the proportional representation side at 52% - but our voters - young people, renters, those whose voices most need to be heard - are less likely to vote.

Face to face contact with voters is the only thing more powerful than advertising. Your conversation with a voter could make the difference.

Consider coming to Vancouver this month to help the Fair Vote Canada team make history.

We have 22 people in Vancouver willing to offer lodging to canvassers.
