Post by world2change »

The Green Party has turned a BC Liberal stronghold into a two-horse race in Kelowna-Lake Country

Not going to happen?

The Greens would have to get most of the NDP vote.

Not going to happen.

Best to vote NDP, especially for the Greens.

IIRC, Stupka is the campaign manager for Shaw.

Just because he says it's a two horse race doesn't really mean anything.

However, I think Allison Shaw is a far better candidate than the NDP's dud.

"One of the most interesting races is in Kelowna-Lake Country, which the Green Party seemed to be targeting with Weaver’s visit and a strong candidate in Alison Shaw. Can anyone pull off an upset in this Liberal strong-hold? That remains to be seen and depends on how many people turn out to vote."

I'll throw my support with the Greens. It's a long-shot that the NDP will win here, so I'm not worried about splitting the Liberal vote. It'll send a shock through the Liberals, that's for sure, and hopefully right the ship.

Gee I wonder what your agenda is..................

"The argument about the vote split is a form of voter suppression," said Weaver, a scientist who has taught at the University of Victoria. "It's actually a very clever tactic, because what it does is rile up the (party) base and it turns off everybody else. But if people vote for what they want, we know we can win."

Weaver said the Greens' refusal to accept political donations from corporations and unions appeals to voters who hear the NDP and Liberals "argue over who is the least bought off."

That's a crock.

Who's nervous George? You're the one spamming the place with directives to not vote Green.
