BC Election Result Analysis

Gordon Campbell is back with a third term for his Liberal Government in British Columbia. He does have an advantage getting elected because Conservatives support Provincial Liberals in B.C. The N.D.P. blew a great chance to take over by being the enemy of the environment in the election. Even David Suzuki campaigned for the Liberals and against the N.D.P. I am from Ontario and find B.C. politics interesting and strange. If you are from BC you will probably find Ontario politics boring.

Murray,

I always strive to be a stickler for accuracy. I don't feel it's accurate to say that "Conservatives support BC Liberals". Oh sure, many of us voted for Campbell & his party but it was more an issue of voting against the NDP.

Even if a true conservative party came into being in BC province-wide, I'd have to have some certainty of their ability to wholly capture ridings. Otherwise a vote for them would be equivalent to helping the NDP.

Food for thought,

Robert W.

Many of us in B.C. also find B.C. provincial and civic politics strange. There is currently no real alternative to the "Liberal" party.
