Commentary
Observations
BC Liberals are in ‘trouble’ with city of Burnaby residents. The BC New Democrats have a 55/45 per cent lead over the BC Liberals who have been hammered by poor public relations relating to gang violence in the lower mainland and the highly visible issue of a remand centre and minimum security facility in Burnaby which attracts only minority support from city of Burnaby citizens.
Burnaby residents have more confidence in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s ability to deal with escalating serious gang crime in the lower mainland--20% more in fact than AG Oppal and SG Van Dongen.
Nearly one in two Burnaby residents are of the opinion that the BC government is “indirectly involved in BC’s drug trade and indirectly part of the gang problem.”
