I'm not surprised, but I'm not disappointed.

The Green Party establishing any presence is the important milestone, any additional seats are a welcome addition but not as impactful.

I have to say -- I am very surprised to see the NDP falling 7%+ behind. I guess people really prefer an utterly incompetent known evil instead of considering the unknown.

Not really surprised..

in all the buildup to the election i litterally never spoke to a single person who backed the NDP, so who was voting for them?

I probably had a fairly small sample size but i guess the seniors and union workers are the ones backing NDP?

I do agree with that but at least we know what we are dealing with and what we are going to get out of her. Dix is a loose cannon and the people are not willing to take that chance right now.

She's puppet anyways, we have nothing to worry about.

Some pundit on news 1130 is saying Clark will be leaving in 2 years.

so what happens if Liberals form a majority but Christy Clark loses her own riding? Will she still be the leader of the Liberals?

She takes another MP's place. An elected MP gives his seat to her.

I can't remember if this is what typically happens at the federal or provincial level, but I think the usual procedure is, the winner from a really strong Liberals riding will resign, and the party leader will run in a by-election in that riding again.

But definitely, for a party leader to lose out in her own riding is always a bit of a blow.

I'd love to see a by-election where Clark ends up losing a strong Liberal riding...

Falcon probably would've handled a lot of things better than Clark.

Pollsters and political pundits were wrong in Alberta during the election last year. They are wrong again this year in BC.
