Referendum Primer for Progressives

From Marc Lee at Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives:

Today, we released a primer on the referendum, and in it we address some key issues and legitimate concerns that have emerged in the lead-up. We are not fans of determining tax policy by referendum, and what’s on the table is not perfect. But the overall package represents a major increase in transit service and infrastructure, and is much needed.

Our primer is available on-line here (also as a downloadable pdf). While you are at it, check out this related post from research associate Marvin Shaffer on the provincial government’s role in undermining transportation decision-making in Metro Vancouver.
