The results of the 2016 BCPRGIDC plebiscite are in! The purpose of this plebiscite was to engage our members in a process that would determine their support in changing administration of the wheat and barley check-off to be assigned to the BC Peace River Grain Industry Development Council. Voting was open from April 1 – June 27, 2016.
A total of 358 voting members received a voting package. The plebiscite package was also available on this website. In order for the plebiscite to pass, 25% of 2015 levy payers were required to vote and of those 25%, 60% had to be in favour and represent 50% of levy dollars voted.
