If that's not voter apathy, I don't know what is.

Kinda sad when you realize that basically a quarter (okay, maybe a third) of the population of BC determines the fate of the province.

How do they deserve it? Do we give out seats like "participation" prizes now?

You are referring to Vicki Huntington? She is from a PC dynasty.. Honestly PC would have been stronger if she had led instead of John Cummins. But I think she is too smart for that.

The Green party split the vote with the NDP. In a lot of ridings, the combined Green + NDP vote would've beat the Liberals.

I'm good with no NDP government.

I dunno how anyone in the Fraserview riding could vote for her, esp given how they have seen her running in the municipal election.

Somewhere out there, there's an NDP-supporting Leafs fan that could really, REALLY use a hug right now. #bcelxn #bcpoli

You would be surprised who would even vote for Gabriel Yiu in this riding. Have you heard of the crap he talks about on the Chinese radio? This hood is mostly immigrant families, lots of which care about the damn economy.

In 2009 Liberals randomly dropped Kash Heed into this hood and he still beat out this dude.

The riding is fairly affluent, so voting against the NDP isn't too surprising. But really, Suzanne Anton?!

I am also a bit surprised by how close a lot of the ridings are. (I remember Fraserview being one of them.) There was one dude leading the runner up person by only 60-something votes...

Whats wrong with Anton? I didn't really look in to her Municpal election but when she held City council and commissioner of Park Board she got shit done

she's a hard worker for sure

New party....

Taxes still go up
Gas still goes up
Cost of living still goes up

Which party actually helps reduce this? None!
