The BC Liberals are facing heat, two weeks out from the provincial election, after a video emerged of the party’s candidates laughing at disparaging, sexist, and misogynistic comments about an opponent.

If they win....adios social programs.


You sure you want to go down that path?

New Democratic Party isn't exactly what one would expect from the name either, given they are more socialist than anything else, with a penchant for robbing Peter to give a handout to Paul.

About the only thing they've proven themselves expert at (other than increasing the public service payroll), is spending other peoples' money, and believe you me they haven't been around quite long enough, for people to appreciate how nasty things will get, once taxes get raised left right and center, to pay for all the vote buying bills that come in.

The "wealth tax" that they call speculator tax to make it more palatable, is but the beginning.

Give the grinning fool a majority, and you best buckle your seat belt cause it's gonna be a wild ride.

Pity that it would appear there are enough gullible voters out there to give the goof a majority.

One big thing to remember is the difference between the Liberals and NDP when it comes to accepting racism etc. Liberals candidate states rude comments, quickly removed as a candidate for the Liberals, NDP does the same, nothing done, weak apology and off you go.

Racism is not a problem. If you think racism is a problem, you are out of touch with the real world. I never see racism. I do see weak justice systems, foolish spending and dumb policies that only tax society and produce no results. Want more affordable housing, create massive jobs and build industry to produce construction products extremely efficiently. THe government is not about solving problems. Its about control and manipulation.

We are doomed, recent study shows more than 50% of BC votes not for the party they want or approve of, but the party they want to block. Listed on Castanet today.
That s where we are now. How absolute pathetic that this is all we are left with when making our decision today of governments of choice. How pathetic all the parties have become and even more so the individuals within. :cuss:

Interesting that the race has apparently tightened with a 20-point lead now a 10-point lead. If the latest poll is to be believed. I still expect the NDP to win their majority but it may be that people are listening to Horgan and not buying his explanation for why he called an unnecessary election during a pandemic.

1998 is the last time the NDP won a provincial election and in that election they did not win the popular vote. That's why we have to be careful at looking at even a 10-point and concluding beyond all doubt that the resulting seat distribution will correspond. Again, I do think the NDP will get their majority but it might not be as big as Horgan was expecting. We'll see . . .

Is that down to a 10 point lead over the Liberals Urbane? I wonder how many NDP votes might go toward the Green Party.

Thanks. It is going to be interesting. Too bad we might have to wait two weeks to find out the results

I had look at it and there's plenty of feel-good terminology, but, and I may have missed it, how do they plan on paying for these billions of annual expenditures?

That is what potential Green voters should be asking.

You've touched on the main item that the Greens have in common with the NDP.

Both are excellent at spending other peoples' money, and both also think voters pockets are endlessly overflowing with cash, allowing for them to pick said pockets at will.

What neither has figured out yet, is what happens once you've spent everyone elses' money?
