Corporate body

The Citizens' Assembly on Electoral Reform is a group created by the government of British Columbia, Canada to investigate changes to the provincial electoral system.

On 25 October 2004, it proposed replacing the province's existing First Past the Post (FPTP) system with a Single Transferable Vote (STV) system: this recommendation was put to the electorate-at-large in a referendum held concurrently with the 2005 provincial election. The referendum required approval by 60% of votes and simple majorities in 60% of the 79 districts in order to pass: final results indicate that the referendum failed with only 57.7% of votes in favour, although it did have majority support in 77 of the 79 electoral districts.

Another referendum on adopting the STV system was held and defeated during BC's 2009 provincial election.

Thomas Catterall (1843-1919) came to Victoria, BC in 1884 and established a successful building and general contractor business, Thomas Catterall and Co., at 644 Fort Street. Among some of the prominent buildings erected are: Hon James Dunsmuir’s residence at Hatley Park, and former residence at Burleith, Craigflower Rd; Gordon’s Ltd, Yates St.; The old High School, Fernwood Road; residence of the late W J Pendray; Westover, on Shasta Avenue, off St Charles St, built for Albert Todd; T B Hall’s residence, Rockland Avenue; Snowden residence at Gorge; Graham residence, Hillside Avenue.

Thomas Catterall was born in Liverpool, UK in 1843 and married Agnes Wenzell. They had six children. The eldest, Harry Catterall (1871-1939?] also worked in the family business. In 1901, Harry married Ada Gladding and they had three children, Thomas, Helen and Laura. Ada Gladding's father, Charles Gladding, was a gardener working for the Dunsmuir family for many years and was initially in charge of creating the gardens at Hatley Park. It is possible that Harry and Ada met through their mutual association with the Dunsmuirs.
