Castanet reporting of results is way off
At 7:30 a.m today.

Bottom line ..no candidate improved much of anything.

Exception...maybe the Conservative ....Mark Thompson.

Except that the last by-election the Conservatives got 6% and the last other election in the district in which there was a Conservative candidate, they got 11%. Thompson's results are broadly in line with those.
I believe he was a good candidate, but I honestly don't think the quality of the candidates was ever going to impact the results beyond a few percent at most.

Very true, I've accepted every election they go up. I do expect the day after they ALL come down/removed.

Castanet got it right. Stewart won the by-election and the NDP were a distant second. The NDP candidate lost ground from previous elections. Rather than blaming Castanet you should look at why your party has been losing ground.

The liberals could have ran a monkey in that riding and still would have won.

Rather than insulting the residents of Kelowna West you should examine why your party did so poorly in the by-election and why it's lost five general elections in a row.

I can't argue with that. The monkey would have been far more intelligent than the NDP's stable of brain dead morons.

Interesting article in the Cap News yesterday. Horgan didn't bother to show up for 5 minutes and throw some support behind Shelley Cook. Weaver showed, all the Liberal leadership candidates showed, but Horgan avoided the interior, same as he did during the provincial election. https://www.kelownacapnews.com/e-editio ... 8cb340eec5

Oh sure, Horgan was 20 minutes up the road touting a school announcement in Winfield, but he showed utter disrespect for both Cook and for the voters of West Kelowna when he could swing by for a quick visit. What an arrogant, self-centered piece of garbage that man is.

How do you they didn't have conflicting schedules? :135:
It's possible they had a conversation in regards to what they were both doing at the time and realized getting together wasn't practical.

Nevermind.
:sleepdeprived:

This whole thread is bashing.

Why signal one out? :admin:

Horgan made the timing of the election, rather amusing if he then had "conflicts" in the timing.

Let's be real, Weaver wanted face time, and Horgan knows it's a Liberal area and couldn't care less about wasting his time trying to win the unwinnable. Not great qualities in a leader.

Ya, but that's not me. :up:

The NDP run a memo-forging monkey in Vancouver Kingsway and he keeps winning.

Fair enough. "Keeps winning" is the main thing here.

But seriously :topic:

Hasn't Ben Stewart replaced Christy on February 14th? Perish the thought, by has this thread :runforlife: run its course?
