BC Election 2024

Post by Glacier »

The election is coming on or before October 19th. Are you ready? Will the BCNDP win in a massive landslide or will the BCU (BC United Party) disappear?

Who answers polls anyway? If a human called me for my opinion I would participate up to any personal demographic information. If a robocall calls me with a recording and press 1 for this or that then I hang up before doing anything. Many people wouldn't bother to even talk to a human these days. So is it landline hangers-ons?

I would answer everything truthfully. If Eby personally called I would gladly tell him my exact address and invite him over for coffee so I could tell him exactly what I think.
I don’t care who knows who I am voting for and why.

BC United party thought voters would buy their pathetic Bs by changing their name? Nothing was changed! The same stupid people pretending to serve the voters of BC, but in reality only look out for the upper crust, the upper 1%, 5%, 10%? A party where they have no new blood, but are left with the tired career politician who wants that pension.

The conservatives have finally organized and risen in the polls. This is despite John Rustad as their leader. LOL, a retread BC Liberal/United party member.

I will be shocked if the NDP forms the government, but what is the alternative? We can only hope the NDP forms a minority government with support from the Greens and United parties.

BC Liberal Party/United Party is coalition of liberals and conservatives.

There are far bigger problems that need addressing in British Columbia than time change.

There will be some seats won by the BC United and some won by the Conservatives.
But there will be a lot won by the NDP where the right wing vote was split. In those ridings the BCU and the Conservative votes will total more then the NDP votes.
That's what Eby is hoping for and will likely happen.

The only way to overcome this is for the two right wing parties to pick which ridings to stay in or stay out of. The party with the best chance needs to stay, the other one bows out.
Then possibly they can form a coalition.
I only suggest the above as I feel Falcon is the problem. He needs to join the Conservatives and turn the leadership over to Rustad, but he won't.

Here's the latest polling. The BC UNITED is collapsing.
NDP 39.6%
Conservatives 34.2%,
BC UNITED 14.5%

NDP vs Social credit.

then NDP vs Liberal

then NDP vs BC United party

Now NDP vs conservative party ( Social credit)

Going to watch the next few months before the October election to see if the tax and spend NDP are going to mouth the words " fiscally responsible" [icon_lol2.gif]

BC has to get the resource sector back in the fold again to generate the tax revenues BC has used in the past to make this province what it was 10 years ago. Stop this folly regarding crown land and FN's veto. We have a plethora of environmental standards in place already.

Get the drug addled off the streets and into rehab. And, not for 30 days, for 30 months so they will be contributing to society if they ever get to a stage to be let out.

No end to changes that will make the streets safer and this province great again. So far the NDP have not done it in my opinion, they just dream up more taxes to spend.

Until the right wing in BC gets there :cuss: together the ndp will always win.

As long as the extreme right wing fascist christian nationalist/evangelicals have a little home then the vote can split all it likes. It's when they join together that they become a problem.

Just like the far left fascist tyrannical governments Liberal/Ndp coalition we currently have in power in both BC and Canada. That’s going well. Not.

I am definitely looking forward to both the Provincial election later this year and Federal election next year.

Unless China helps out in both elections, I fully expect changes in both seats of government.

Everyone knows JT is in love with the CCP/China, of course ndp has always been in love with them.

There's a Liberal/Ndp coalition in power in BC? Whodathunk. Not.
So a national dental care program is fascist? Paid sick leave too? Efforts towards countering anti-scab activity, housing, tax fairness, child care and reconciliation commitments all fascist too? Interesting definition of fascist.
Wikipedia defines it as:
Fascism is a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist political ideology and movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation or race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy.
I'll give you dictatorial leader seeing as how that's basically how our parliamentary system ends up as. But that's the same with any Prime Minister/party in power.

Absolutely there is a Liberal/NDP coalition in BC. Federally, the Libs and NDP are interfering. Have you not witnessed Singh and Trudeau courting Horgan, now Eby? :smt045

In regard to your second paragraph, a copy and paste from Wikipedia is laughable however, I will admit I look on there if I want to know the history of a long ago celebrity or something like that.

Trudeau is the most extreme far left dictator Canada has ever had. There has never been a leader in Canada who has put us in such dire straits. His father was bad but imo not this bad. There have been governments in power that were not my party of choice. That said, I never feared for Canada, Canadians, myself or otherwise. This government who is propped up by Singh are terrifying.

I’ll finish off, so this post doesn’t get removed for off topic, both Trudeau and Singh have their influence in the upcoming BC election with the BCNDP imo
