For years, Vancouver seems to have elected a surprisingly high number of public officials with surnames starting with letters at the top of the alphabet.
This could be due in no small part, of course, to candidates being sorted in alphabetical order on the ballots themselves.
But thanks to a motion by Clr. Andrea Reimer, moved earlier this spring and voted on this morning, this will change for future civic elections.
Except for the Vancouver School Board.
Council: motion on randomized ballots goes to a vote. Councillors Ball, Carr and De Genova opposed but the motion passes. Municipal election ballot for Mayor, Council and Park Board will be randomized. Over to you @VSB39
