I appear to have a spare moment so here I am. Pacific Front’s new release is out on promo on Beatport now. I’ll be posting shortly about that with some details and samples. Anand is coming over tomorrow and we’ll be jamming on some new Tiebreaker material, which I am thinking is going to sound a lot different than anything we’ve done in the past. I sent over the parts for Emily’s China to Justin earlier this week so we may see a remix of that at some point in the future, which would be very interesting to say the least.
British Columbia had an election this week and I am not too sure what happened. I voted but the majority of eligible voters did not – only 48% did. STV got shot down in a pretty serious manner – in 2005 it garnered 57% in favour, and in 2009 it only held 38% in favour. I am not too sure what happened but the facts are there – people don’t want it. Except for in Victoria – Beacon Hill, 62% of people were in favour. Only one other riding had that much approval for STV and it was one from Vancouver. The next closest riding was down around 55% and that was also in Victoria, but almost everywhere else was much lower, hence the results. For STV to be approved, a 60% “supermajority” of the popular vote was required, and needless to say it wasn’t even close.
Why is British Columbia so apathetic when it comes to voting? Was anyone else surprised by the results?
