Do you think it is time for a political change in B.C.?

MSNBC and Fox news can hardly be mentioned in the same breath. One of them has complete superiority in the ratings. We aren't talking sort of more viewership. We are talking about complete different categories of viewership. At best MSBC gets 350 000 viewers for a show. Fox news gets upwards of 3 million viewers for shows. Totally different games.

According to a news release from FNC, Nielsen Media Research found that the network completed the previous 12 months with the top 11 programs in total viewers. Demonstrating the network's dominance is the fact that the evening audience for Fox News topped the ratings of CNN, MSNBC and CNN combined with an average of 2,071,000, up 11 percent.

I myself wonder if there will be apathy within the liberal voting block and they just won't turn out.

How many votes will the new conservative party of BC steal from the liberals?

Like I've said twice in this thread, the team she's putting together is very strong.

Notables:

Dan Ashton - Mayor of Penticton

Peter Fassbender - Mayor of the City of Langley

Sam Sullivan - Former Mayor of Vancouver (not a huge fan of him, but notable name nonetheless)

Andrew Wilkinson - Lawyer and Doctor

Amrik Virk - Notable RCMP officer

Michelle Stilwell - Gold Medal Paralympian

You're calling Sam Sullivan "very strong"? He was one of the worst mayors in the history of Vancouver.

A real change IMO, *might* only happen in the event that neither the B.C. Lieberals or the NDP are elected.

There's just too much baggage with both parties.

Of course the question is whether a party that doesn't have a bunch of corrupt power brokers behind it would be able to get anywhere or do anything in this dirty, dirty province.

Will you be disappointed if the voting goes the way of the polls? Will you accept the new government as yours, chosen by the people?

Prediction: NDP comes in. There's another scandal sooner rather than later. And then they're back out again.

Ho-hum.

I'd say the NDP are the lesser of the two evils.

It'll be a 2 horse race in the election (NDP, Libs), voting for another party will be throwing your vote away or like not voting at all.

agree Dix wasn't the best choice of leader, although don't beleive everything you see in an attack ad Taxi.

In response the OP's question, yes the Liberials need to go!!

Liberals need to be removed, the are an insult to our electoral process at this point. NDP are the apparent lesser of the 3 evils in this case (Libs Cons, NDP) but everyone is in bed with someone these days. At least the NDP are in bed with the unions as opposed to big corporations and banks.

Absolutely not. The NDP would be, and always are, a disaster.

The polls are heavily skewed in this case. Most peolpe who want change are going to be vocal about it. Most people who don't are reluctantly accepting the Liberals due to a lack of other viable alternatives. People who reluctantly accept a position aren't going to run out to the polls, which don't count for anything.

Edit: Also Adrian Dix was a baaaaaddd choice for leader of the NDP party. Given his history of fraud, he should never have participated in politics again. Shocking that the NDP could not find a better candidate than Clark in their ranks.
