Plebiscite lacks integrity

A plebiscite over any issue in which all the facts are not on the table lacks integrity.
A plebiscite over any issue in which the terms/conditions change during the “voting period” lacks integrity.
A plebiscite which relies on, but has not confirmed, financial contribution from other levels of government lacks integrity.
A plebiscite which takes proportionally more funds out of the pockets of the poor lacks integrity.
A plebiscite which unevenly funds only one side of the issue with public funds lacks integrity.
I therefore conclude that TransLink’s plebiscite, clearly lacking integrity, should be voted down.
