The rise of the Greens means change. From Keith Baldrey:

For the first time in more than two decades, a third political party appears poised to potentially play a critical role in determining the outcome of a B.C. election.

The B.C. Green Party, buoyed by a strong performance by their leader Andrew Weaver in the televised leaders’ debate, seems ready to flex some electoral muscle not seen by a third party since the 1996 election.

The last person that should ever be embarrassed by anyone else is the drunken bozo Elizabeth May.

The Greens can only be spoilers in this election.

They have too far to go to win many seats.

A stronger Clark majority is a likelihood if the Greens strongly pull NDP votes.

How can you be sure that the polls are accurate? You believed them four years ago and told everyone on here that Clark and the Liberals were on their way out and that your party would win a big majority. Don't trust the polls. Anyway, people shouldn't be bullied into voting for a party they don't want to vote for. I would vote Green long before I would vote NDP.

I voted Liberal. I'm happy that I didn't have to decide between the NDP and the Greens but if I had I would have chosen the Greens. No question about that.

No surprise.

If they win you can sit back and watch the debt pile up.

BC has a lower debt load than most other jurisdictions but I'm confused. When we talked about spending on public education a couple of years ago you wanted the government to stop balancing the budget and go into debt. Why now the concern about debt?

Jeez, Urbane...recognize some priorities.

No Site C . No Deas bridge.

Equals better Education and Health Care.

Hope you were not confused when you voted!

if the NDP win we can sit back and watch the number of people forced into welfare pile up. Just like last time the NDP were in power.

Because of our strong economy we can have that spending on education as well as health care AND projects like Site C. At the televised debate Christy Clark said that the NDP wouldn't add a penny extra to education spending and Horgan didn't deny that. This government has a balanced approach. Strong on health and education and willing to take on needed infrastructure projects.

Our education performance is just fine compared to most places, and the BCTF doesn't really need any more income to go spend in Mexico, while they dream up new ways to fleece their employers.
