Gracious? What on earth would you and your cozealots know about gracious, after spamming the board with fertilizer for the last four years?

If you feel that way, you probably should leave. Don't let the door hit you on the way out ;)

This is far reaching, I know federally that the Liberals must be having 6 fits about this coalition. It won't last. BC wanted change but for some reason it seemed to be (for the most part) aimed at Christy. I think that once she is gone and another leader chosen the liberals will have their majority back......depending on who they chose as leader. A lot of anger directed at the old liberal guard as well.

Why? The BC Liberals are not at all associated with the Liberal party of Canada.

After the next election, you may be right, but it's unlikely beforehand. Honestly, they should change their name first, because it is terribly misleading.

The Liberal name is more associated with centrist policy than any other party.

In BC, there's no strong right party and the BC Liberals offer enough to the small c conservatives to make them comfortable: smaller government, free enterprise, less meddling.

But they're also on board with some very leftist ideals, like the carbon tax. And despite all the complaints we've seen about how social services are delivered, I can tell you from experience those on disability have seen a big improvement in what they're allowed to earn and keep in the last couple of years. We see improved spending on health care and better direction on education spending (although that cost us dearly), other than the ridiculous "buy us with our own money and throw the trustees under the bus" business last spring. There's always room for improvement, but the extreme promises of the NDP and Greens during the campaign were pie in the sky, and no one is going to want to pay the piper when the bills roll in.

Like the Federal Liberal party, the BC Liberals are the BC party centrists feel most comfortable with, a reasonable mix of idealism and pragmatism. Changing their name won't change that.

My answer to Neil's question:
It has nothing to do with party affiliation and everything to do with a few deals that the feds have going like the Kinder Morgan pipeline and probably even site c. Really you should probably get off Castanet and watch some news.

Or be merged into a new coalition and called the BC Party or something like in Alberta. To play the "George-" game, if the Conservatives hadn't syphoned off votes in Courtney Comox the Liberals would have won (because of course all of these voters would have voted Liberal, duh) and they would have a majority now and billions of dollars of investment in BC wouldn't currently be in jeopardy. It was just pure divine intervention that the NDP are so freaking stupid that they cost themselves two ridings purely out of their commitment to blatant sexism and racism.

You mean like calling it the "New Democratic Party," when all they do is dust off the same old playbook decade after decade?

That kind of misleading?

I agree, it has happened 3 times now that I can remember, The Social Credit Party, the Reform Party and now the Liberal Party. they will soon run out of names. Each of those names came with a dagger to the back of the leaders at the time.
