Is it time to change the way we vote in P.E.I.? The UFCW Canada Eastern Provinces Council believes that it is, and islanders are now being asked for our input on this issue through a plebiscite that runs from October 29 to November 7. A plebiscite is a non-binding vote on a public question involving change. In this case, the question is whether or not we want to reform P.E.I.’s voting system.
