by Sean Orr | Low information voters: Here’s What You Need to Know About BC’s Election. “We’re frankly going to embarrass ourselves if we walk into that English final and/or voting booth on May 9 without at least attempting to understand what the hell has been going on outside of our own dimly-lit basement suites”.

I mean, are there people who actually think that the BC Liberals are, you know, liberal? CBC News stops and explains to viewers that Christy Clark’s BC Liberals are actually Conservatives.
Or that the Greens are actually a far left party like this Vote Compass quiz positions them as. I should know. I ran for them. And although they may have shifted left since 2005, they still have voted with the BC Liberals on many contentious bills, and have historically positioned themselves as fiscally conservative libertarians.
Just read about this teacher’s “meeting” with Green leader Andrew Weaver: “Weaver had dominated the meeting with angry assertions and personal feelings about teachers, the GVTA, and the BCTF, and allowed very little space for them to respond or ask questions. He paid only slight attention to policy and showed very little interest in hearing from O’Connor and Tosczak about teachers’ experience in public education”.
Still not convinced? I’ve been to the mountaintop!’: B.C. Green candidate awkwardly re-enacts famous MLK speech. Politics…it’s a hell of a drug.
Besides, blocking people’s commutes is just rude: Some frustrated commuters blame political supporters for badly congested bridge.
B.C. Liberals’ election platform gives little attention to the fentanyl crisis despite deaths continuing to soar. I guess it could be worse. They could be going full creep.

5 stylistic things that John Horgan is doing differently than Adrian Dix on the campaign trail. “He’s appealing to jocks, some of whom might be uncomfortable with a female premier”. What a terrifying thought. We are depending on bros to save our province. Smash the patriarchy! You just need the patriarchy’s help to smash it.
They’re on to us: BC Liberal candidate: guaranteeing homeless people have homes sounds like communism. Best comment: “I’m sure that the People’s Republic of Utah will appreciate the praise” – Nicole Joliet.
