Should British Columbians care about Brexit?

The Vancouver Sun reported on the relevance of the Brexit vote for British Columbians. The vote will determine whether the United Kingdom should leave the European Union.

UBC political science professor Allan Craigie said the side who will vote to leave are driven by an emotional nationalism and nostalgia for the days of the British Empire. Craigie also believes there is an underlying racism and a belief that immigrants drain the system. This notion has been disproved.
