2024 BC Election

In this Poll, BC Conservatives lead in polls and seat projections are tied with NDP. The Green Party with 1 seat are King makers. That’s very dangerous as the NDP would be even more beholden to the radicals in BCG for every single thing.
BC Cons need to dig deep and move the needle in the NDP ridings.

Note growing NDP support in parts of interior. Things are very much in motion.

Not sure who conducted the poll they talked about on the Mike Smythe show, but the results were:

NDP - 42%
BCCP - 32%
BC Greens - 12%
BC United - 12%(!)

They estimated that with the vote split in certain ridings, the NDP could get 80 ridings if the election were held today.

It loos like the Greens might be the 'Kingmakers' ;)

 
Dropped our loader off for repair today and was listening to some folks talking about how screwed they will be if Eby wins and the NDP starts handing their land over to FN. Exactly what they said I will not repeat here, but let me tell you the starting point will be violent.
 
I'm not sure if he's bragging or not...

Patient went to ER 180 times, says Eby, as he names science adviser on drug crisis​


VANCOUVER — In Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, one person made 180 hospital visits last year, according to Premier David Eby, who said the patient was part of a crisis of repeated emergencies among people with overlapping health and addiction problems.

They include people with brain injuries from overdoses who show up in British Columbia hospitals far more often than most, he said.

 
Maybe we should treat our medical system like a prepaid maintenance package you'd buy for your car.

You get it if you buy into it, otherwise it's pay as you go. I have to imagine that person making 180 visits a year has used much resources and probably contributed very little. They are essentially spending other peoples money for their addiction.

Tie in the LEO and Legal resources that I imagine they are scooping up and they are a drain on society and social systems.

I'm willing to help people, but they have to want to be helped and there has to be limit, after which their life is in their hands.

Ok… So I show up to the passed out person call and they’re absolutely out of it, cannot be roused and require medical attention, which in the normal course of things would necessitate ambulance transport them to emerg. What would you have happen in these circumstances? We and the paramedics have a legal duty of care.

I appreciate that you're a compassionate guy, and that's a good thing especially as a LEO.

But perhaps your duty to care should only extend so far.
 
Survey says... trouble for the NDP and BC United....

BC NDP Lead Narrows as British Columbians Ponder Choices​

June 25, 2024By Mario Canseco

Voter consideration for the Conservatives and the Greens rose since May, along with the approval ratings for their leaders.

Vancouver, BC [June 25, 2024] – The governing BC New Democratic Party (NDP) remains ahead of the Conservative Party of BC as British Columbians consider their options in this year’s provincial election, a new Research Co. poll has found.

In the online survey of a representative provincial sample, 40% of decided voters (-2 since a similar Research Co. poll conducted in May 2024) would cast a ballot for the governing BC New Democratic Party (NDP) candidate in their riding if the election were held today, while 33% (+1) would support the Conservative Party of BC.

The BC Green Party is third with 15% (+3), followed by BC United—currently the Official Opposition in the Legislative Assembly—with 11% (-1). Other parties and independent candidates are backed by 2% of decided voters (=).
