Knock, knock it's Sensible BC

Sensible BC is ramping up their efforts for signatures by taking their petition door to door.
The organization is conducting a referendum that could start the process of legalizing marijuana in the province - if they get enough votes.
"While we have received a great local response, to date, if we're to meet the numbers demanded by the referendum process, in the time remaining, we need to make signing more convenient. This means bringing petitions to people's doorsteps," says local spokesperson, Mark Conlin.
The province-wide petition requires the signatures of 10% of registered BC voters from all of the provinces 85 ridings in order for the referendum to happen.
The signatures must be obtained by Dec 5.
Conlin noted that, while the regular local signing locations - as listed at sensiblebc.ca - will continue to be available to the public, the onset of colder weather and shorter daylight hours makes this type of canvass easier and more effective for volunteers.
