Commentary
GPR Says:
On adjusted basis John Horgan and BC New Democrats @ (51%) on Vancouver Island, (45%) through the populous Lower Mainland including Vancouver City, and (39%) in the North, Southern Interior and Kootenay region.

Andrew Weaver and BC Greens @ (19%) on Vancouver Island, (10%) through the Lower Mainland including Vancouver City, and (14%) in the North, Southern Interior and Kootenay region.
(54%) of respondents on Vancouver Island agree with federal government measures, while (29%) see the stress test (for mortgages) too difficult a standard.
In the Multimillion population of BC Lower Mainland including Vancouver City region, (51%) agree with the federal government while (32%) see the standard as too difficult. In the North (Prince George) South Okanagan and Kootenay region (45%) agree with the federal government and (40%) believe the standard is too difficult.

In the Lower Mainland including Vancouver City (36%) support Rachel Notley, while (25%) support United Conservative Jason Kenney. In the North, Southern Okanagan and Kootenay region of the province (31%) support Rachel Notley while (32%) support Jason Kenney.
On a ‘Decided’ basis John Horgan & BC New Democrats go from (43%) ‘Decided’ in my Jan. 03/ 2019 poll – to – (46%) ‘Decided’ – NOW, an increase in support over the month and following must win Nanaimo by election – of (7%) ‘Nationally’ (B.C.).
In my Jan 03 poll Andrew Wilkinson and BC Liberals scored (35%) ‘Decided’. I have now placed Wilkinson and BC Liberals at (37%), an increase of (6%) ‘Nationally’ (B.C.).
Since the May 2017 BC general election to now the BC Liberals have lost (10%) support (according to me), while the BC NDP has support increase of (15%).
During the same polling period Weaver and BC Greens have gone from (21%) ‘Decided’ to (14%) or one third less support. However, BC Greens obtained (17%) of Vote in the 2017 election – reflecting a decrease of only (14%) to this poll today.
Without any doubt more British Columbians believe the federal government policy of mortgage stress test for first time homebuyers is a winner as is the BC provincial government Speculation Tax.
Alberta NDP Premier Notley is far more popular in British Columbia than Alberta Opposition Leader for United Conservative Party Jason Kenney is.
BC public perception of power in terms of advice and consent confers more power on US Senate over President than power drawn by Canadian aboriginals under the same legal requisite – from Canada’s highest courts.
Debating whether a newborn should live or die is very disturbing to British Columbians and rejected as Not acceptable (“unbelievable”) by a large majority of British Columbians (well known for progressive nature).
2 Percent Margin of Error Estimate.
