I'm about as IT savvy as an 90 year old so I'm not sure but I assume he's got enough on his hands at the moment.

Not every one is that close to bankruptcy even you said 50% so that leaves the other 50% to spend cause they still work.

Keep the numbers in mind.

 

Of that poll it says $200.  The reality is, $400 ish dollars would sink closer to 70% of the population of Canada right now.  Your "they still work" comment is immaterial as that 50% is OF working class Canadians currently still employed.

 

The numbers don't tend to lie much.  $200 to $400 is a shock most under these conditions cannot survive

Not surprised to see BC Liberals promise to cut taxes..

 

Next week they will likely promise to lower the cost of Beer .....

 

Politics really can give a person heartburn.... kind of depressing to see the parties not really discussing some of the big issues i care about..

 

Affordable housing, increasing quality jobs not mcJobs, opiate crisis, BC having the lowest funded school system in Canada..... , poor access to healthcare,  upgrade on the number 1 highway Vancouver to Chilliwack ...,  not enough daycare..., crappy senior care homes,   etc etc.....

yeah you'd think there would have been a way to engineer 7.8 billion in tax cuts for families making under say a combined $120,000 or so. Wilkinson can legitimately claim everyone benefits a little tho, and sometimes theses sort of things work to sway votes. 

 

Instead of something more targeted and potentially useful, we have an unnecessary idea or an unnecessary election. Some sort of universal balance at work here I think.

 

it would have to happen mid-mandate. 

 

have you checked them out tho? they got this really right for once. The 2 door manual with the crawler gear makes me drool. 

Oh, I'm not saying they're not completely tempting...but they're also still Fords :lol:

John Horgan’s early election call gamble seems to be paying off, at least for now.

A new Ipsos poll conducted for Global News suggests the BC NDP has substantial leads in voter preference and leadership, and in every region in the province.

The NDP has an 18-point lead over the BC Liberals just one week into the campaign, the poll suggests.

The poll found 51 per cent of decided voters surveyed would be most likely to support or lean toward the New Democrats.

The BC Liberals are next at 33 per cent support, followed by the BC Greens at 12 per cent.

But the race is far from over. The results exclude the 31 per cent of British Columbians who are undecided or express no preference.

“The good news for the BC Liberals and Greens is that there are more undecided voters available this election compared to the start of the 2017 campaign, 31 per cent today versus 23 per cent in the first poll of the 2017 campaign,” Ipsos Public Affairs senior vice president Kyle Braid said in a statement.

 

The NDP leads by a wide margin across all age groups, according to the poll, including by 18 points among traditionally higher turnout older voters. The NDP is getting the support of 52 per cent of those polled, compared to 34 per cent for the Liberals, among respondents aged 55 years and older.

The NDP have a 25-point lead among women, with 53 per cent supporting the NDP compared to 28 per cent for the Liberals.

In terms of who would be the best premier, Horgan was the choice for 44 per cent of voters who responded to the poll. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson was chosen by 14 per cent of people surveyed, and new Green Party Leader Sonia Furstenau is the choice of six per cent.

agreed - which is why it was so frustrating for Green voters and people that want to see more green industry initiatives when Weaver handed the party over to Horgan. I mean why vote Green if thats the plan? 

 

I haven't heard the new green leaders stance on whether or not she'll make a similar deal to prop up the NDP again, that will be the deciding factor for me if i vote green or not.

I'd be curious to see how many people responded in each area. I don't buy that he's this popular outside of the GVRD.

Well, PG has been BC Liberal and Reform/Con federally for some time.  Lois Boone was NDP up here for a while until she retired and then her riding went BC Lib.  Incumbents rarely lose here, even in municipal elections.  I don't see the incumbent BC Liberals losing here.

As of yesterday nobody is even running against the NDP incumbent in my riding, Nicholas Simons, of Powell River/Sunshine Coast.

It might be the same in my riding. I've seen a grand total of one sign so far and it was for the NDP incumbent.

 

It would be a waste of time for someone to run against her anyway.....the NDP could run a shaved donkey in PR and it would win in a landslide.
