The NDP has done a good job with Covid only because of the leadership of Dr Henry and Adrian Dix. Every time Horgan opens his mouth, nothing but stupid comes out.

He is in way over his head and calling this election proves it.

Is this legal to call the elections so far ahead of the time?

Seems the election is coming.

I don't like the call. I don't see the need.

That being said, as long as Wilkinson is the leader of the Liberals, (Conservatives actually, but that's another thread), Horgan will be the Premier.

I would have prefered next Fall but..

No prob voting NDP because Andrew Wilkinson' Liberals are really a Conservative party

And He seems to be totally unknown.

The NDP is much closer to true Liberal philosophy.

Seems the Horgan haters don't like the idea of an election during a pandemic. Does this mean there won't still be a pandemic in 2021 when an election has to be called ? I think the truth is that they don't want an election now , because they know the NDP is in a favorable position to win. I'm sure they would like an extra year hoping that things go badly in BC , so that their party at least has a chance.

I don't mind an election during a pandemic. It would allow us to get rid of the scum at the Federal level. Does Horgan honestly think that he can win? We will see.

Seems like a risky time to call an election with schools reopening and covid cases on the rise. I doubt that the NDP will lose the election regardless but it might not be the blowout that they're hoping for.

Another NDP bows out. To be fair, this person makes a house plant look intelligent. Why are all the rats leaving the NDP ship right before an election?

Darn leftists, anyhow! The nerve of them asking us to go and vote. Imposing an election on us. It would be different if we were in New Brunswick or Saskatchewan where a right wing gubment called the election, but this is BC and an NDP gubment called the election. It's a living hell having to vote.

I think the "warm and fuzzy" feeling created by B.C.'s response to COVID, compared to many other areas of the world, along with the fact that the opposition parties are going to be scrambling to present much of a fight, should lead to a majority government for the NDP.

I'm not super thrilled with the election call in the midst of a pandemic, but it probably wouldn't be any better if they ran out their mandate and it's not enough to make me not vote NDP anyway. They're never going to turn the stubbornly conservative southern interior ridings represented on these boards, but I think they will probably win a majority nonetheless.

People like Bowin ma are leftists but John Horgan is no leftist , he carried on where the Bclibs left off .

They have done a great job on the virus but I think calling a snap election is repugnant.

I wonder how many are going to catch the virus going out to vote?
I hope he can sleep at night after this selfish act.
