Starchuk is an NDP Klimate Kook, just like the rest of their deranged crazies.

That narrative is old and dead. People just want to eat and heat their homes, and not give their last dollar to the tax-hungry NDP scam artists.
If this guy is indeed a Klimate lunatic, how could anyone in their right mind describe him as a "solid candidate"? Clearly he needs to be committed to a mental facility, but that describes almost all of the NDP candidates.
It also described all the ndp supporters … they’re the ones to also blame but it’s only a matter of time until they start eating their own and throwing them under the bus …

Next thing you know he'll be crying about Klimate and his testicles, like that other NDP Kook that was wailing about Klimate and her womb.

How anyone can take anything these NDP Kooks say seriously is beyond me. I didn't think they made people that dumb, but here we are.

Another good reason to kick out the NDP and make some changes to the BC Human Rights Code. Section 42, to be precise, which allows preferential hiring to address systemic discrimination and underrepresentation of specific groups.

What it says is this.
In accordance with UBC’s CRC Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Action Plan and pursuant to Section 42 of the BC Human Rights Code, the selection will be restricted to members of the following federally designated groups: people with disabilities, Indigenous people, racialized people, women, and people from minoritized gender identity groups,

So, if you're a healthy White male, you're S. O. L., regardless of how qualified.

You can vote if in hospital

Electors who live in hospitals and facilities that provide long-term care may have the extra option of voting at a mobile polling station in their residence.

Elections Canada offers mobile polling stations in some residences and hospital wards. If required, we transport the ballot box from room to room to facilitate voting.
So really if one doesn't vote I agree with Erin, you ought not complain
Want change, take action.
I did not vote for school board two elections ago because I was legitimately undecided. If someone is actually undecided on who would be the better politician it seems like a weird thing to do. I guess I could have wasted greenhouse gases causing more climate change by going to the polling station and spoiling my ballot, but I chose to stay home (other political spots were acclaimed).

It seems not right that you or Erin would want me thrown in jail or fined because I legitimately don't know which candidate would be better.

Tell them you're disabled because you voted NDP. That should give you a spot at the front of the line for the job.

When you see things like this, in usage, in this country, we realize, anyone part of those selected groups has absolutely zero interest in themselves supporting what they claim about equality, fairness, etc for all people. Niberalism is a group of people that want only one thing, advantage, payment and power over others.

Amazing, anyone would believe that equality is found through discrimination.

Glen Clark, remember him? He was a former Premier, NDP, but somehow smart enough to go work for the Pattison Group as COO.

He was at a convention and made these highlight comments about Eby's govt.
 it should pump the brakes on land use changes that create uncertainty for business and investors

“Stop making changes,”. “Let business catch up. We need a period – a lengthy period -- of stability.”

"Too many of the policy actions are at odds with each other."

"Today, the B.C. forest industry is in crisis. Sawmills have closed and more are closing. Harvest levels are down to that which we saw in the 1960s. Pulp mills are unprofitable."

"Indigenous rights and title, Clark said government policies in recent years have created uncertainty for business."

“In my judgment, (there is) too much immigration right now in Canada, which is keeping wages low."

The guy has learned a lot working from Pattison. Too bad some hasn't rubbed off on Eby.

I got to say, this could be the first time I agree completely with Clark.

British Columbia is in big trouble.

Not going to bother about most of that rant but I will comment on this. Why are harvest levels down? Why are pulp mills unprofitable? Why are sawmills closing?

The answer is simple. After years of neglect under SoCred then Liberal governments that did not replant the forests or even worse changed the rules so fewer trees were replanted, THERE ARE FEW commercially viable trees left and those that are left are hours from the mills.
Truckers are hauling trees 100 miles and more to mills. In a 12 hour day a trucker cannot make 3 trips to the mill with loads. Some have resorted to making 2.5 trips. Sleeping in their trucks so that they can get the other half trip and going home to sleep every other day.
Then, there were all the trees shipped to the US with raw log exports.
And no, the NDP have not done much to help .
Then we have massive forest fires wiping out thousands upon thousands of acres of trees.
Those jobs are not coming back no matter who is in power because there just are no viable trees left close to the mills. Those jobs are gone just like the trees.

Today’s NDP, and their party faithful, would call Glen Clark’s above comments crazy talk from a far right lunatic. It’s little wonder that NDP supporters from 30+ years ago, are for the most part aligning themselves with the Conservatives both provincially and federally. Old school blue collar workers simply can’t get behind NDP and Liberal extreme wokeism.

Shrinking land supply?

BC's population density is 4.8 persons per square kilometer.

Alberta is 6.7 persons per square kilometer.

Ontario is 14 persons per square kilometer.

USA is 37 persons per square kilometer.

Nice try. BC is vast and sparsely populated.
Alberta is basically FLAT. Ontario is basically FLAT. US is basically FLAT. BC is basically mountains. Population density is calculated by taking the entire square kilometers of the province/country and dividing that into the population. If you were to remove all the land in BC that is uninhabitable due to the landscape, BCs persons per sq. Kilometer would be much higher than Albertas or Ontarios.
You need to take a drive through southern Ontario. Not a mountain in sight. Then you need to drive the Coq and tell us just where in that 4 hour drive you think all that uninhabited land people should live.

I guess all those blue collar workers who can't get behind the NDP are why the NDP still have the highest percentage of support in BC of any political party.

I clearly said “old school blue collar workers”… I don’t know any retired, or close to retired, mill workers, loggers, miners, fire fighters, truck drivers, railway employees, construction workers etc, most having a union background, that would consider voting for the modern inclination of either the NDP or Liberal (now calling themselves BCUP).

ETA; this abacus poll shows the majority of BCers don’t support the NDP. It’s not going to take too many BCUP supporters to change their mind and vote Conservative, to put the Conservatives in the lead.
