Commentary
Adrian Dix and the BC New Democrats are sailing toward a super majority government in the province of British Columbia based on this Glen P. Robbins – ROBBINS Sce Research (1998) poll. The BC New Democrats would win 56 seats if an election were held “currently”.
BC Premier and Liberal leader Christy Clark has indicated she wants to keep her job and Premier’s salary – (double that of her job at CKNW) - for another year and one half.
BC Liberal leader Christy Clark is not seen as ‘fit’ to govern by a clear majority of British Columbians – based on her “performance as BC Premier to date.” These numbers clearly contradict her numbers in popular support provided by mainstream pollsters of late. Why?
A majority of British Columbians are of the opinion that Christy Clark should have attended at least one of the two Gay Pride Parades – in either Vancouver or New Westminster, BC.
A majority of British Columbians have lost confidence in the RCMP and do not want to renew its contract early next year.
Adrian Dix and New Democrats are firing on all cylinders in all corners of the Province of British Columbia including Langley and the Fraser Valley (35%) and the North and Interior of the Province (35%). The BC New Democrats are most impressive in the Greater Vancouver region with (48%) support. In contrast the BC Liberals are faltering badly in Greater Vancouver (36%) – and tumbling in Langley and the Fraser Valley (39%) and North and Interior – including the Okanagan (39%).
Much of the BC Liberal difficulty can be attributed to the rise of John Cummins and BC Conservative party who attracts a modest (but crucial) (10%) in Greater Vancouver and (24%) in Langley and the Fraser Valley and North and Interior of the province.
(51%) of British Columbians residing in Greater Vancouver are of the opinion that Christy Clark ought to have attended at least one of the two Gay Pride parades in either Vancouver (where she sits as an MLA) or New Westminster – a riding which has become available with the resignation of NDP MLA Dawn Black.
(42%) of respondents in the North and Interior were also of the opinion that Christy Clark ought to have attended at least one of the two parades. The question following is ----why didn’t Christy attend to at least one of the Gay Pride parades which have become a regular event for many years – what harm could doing so - have done her politically—unless of course her reasons are personal? Is Christy Clark anti-gay? How often is the ‘too busy’ excuse going to be used by her in the next year and one half to avoid taking a position on relevant political issues concerning the Province of British Columbia and it’s citizens, particularly after a decade of former BC Premier and Liberal leader Gordon Campbell hiding ‘out of town’ frequently.
(Stock (Equity) Promoters use these “busy” or “out of town” excuses all of the time when you want to ask them a question about your investment – after they have your money in their bank account. They always return your call when they want your money however).
The RCMP in BC remain more popular in the North and Interior of the Province (47%) and Langley Fraser Valley region (43%), but do less well in Greater Vancouver (38%) and on Vancouver Island (35%)
