Both leaders have had a credible campaign.

The Greens are not credible.

Christy Clark has won you over and you now find her credible. How about that! She's certainly run an outstanding campaign as she did in 2013. I'm not a fan of Andrew Weaver's policies but I appreciate his civility. I know that he and Christy Clark have worked together on issues and I know that will happen in the future if she wins today.

Like increased carbon tax?
No Site C?
No Deas bridge?

Liberals and Greens?

Very strange bedfellows.

Better off to vote NDP.

You're thinking old politics. They'll look for areas of agreement and ways to work together. Hulk Horgan explodes on people but Andrew Weaver and Christy Clark can sit down, have a civil conversation, and it doesn't get personal. That's as it should be. As Weaver said at the debate, the NDP opposed everything. They were automatically against whatever the Liberals proposed and that made some NDP MLA's uncomfortable because they had to vote against things that they liked. That's old politics. Good on Andrew Weaver.

You should take a look at Weaver's voting record .

It is the system that is screwed.
