What PIN issue?


Registered party members (like myself) should have received a letter in the mail this week with a PIN for online or phone voting tomorrow.

I find no pleasure in saying how will you feel when tomorrow night's election is completed without you...

Late-breaking news, mine arrived by late mail-person. :)

I'm in, and can vote at 5am. ;)

I'm among only 90,000 BCers that get to decide our next Premier.

Well that's more than voted for the last one. Please try and get it right this time; though I do pity your choices.

Sort of like 10,000 Victorians voting to fund the new bridge.

When you have 2/3 rds of your membership sign up in two weeks and largely at the behest of a few dozen people, I think that your 90,000 decision makers is a little high!

Not at all. 10,000 Victorians voting on the bridge referendum must equal at least 15% of all elliglble to vote. 90,000 choosing the new premier must be less than 5% of elligible voters across BC.

But you are not eligible to vote if you are not a party member. I suspect voter "turnout" will be well over 85%.

What's wrong with her indeed. I'd certainly take CC over Adrian Dix and some of the hard core Left supporting his campaign. Besides Christy has a better haircut than Kevin Falcon....

She's a leftwing member of the left wing Federal Liberal party, who is fighting the NDP for the same voters.

And the fact that she had the support of only one MLA, a backbencher.

Like it or not, she will divide the coalition, thanks to her lifelong tax and spend indoctrination.

She's the best thing that could happen to the NDP

:confused:

Premier-elect; she has not yet been sworn in by the Lieutenant Governor. Also who thinks she should push Gordon Campbell out of his Vancouver-Point Grey seat so that she can become an MLA? You gotta love a democracy where your new Premier has not been voted into parliament by the electorate at large.

Kevin Falcon would have been the best thing for the ndp. It would have been a case of meet the new boss, same as the old boss - and we all know shat would have happened if Gordo stuck around.

Our voting system is not like the USA, its comparable to the British system. You vote for your representative for your riding and they in turn vote for a leader of their party, you have no direct say in the leader.

However that being said, most folks dont vote for their local MLA or MP when they reach the ballot box, all they see in their mind is the leader of the party.

Yes I understand that. What "irks" me, is that the new leader becomes premier without even being elected as an MLA.

How about the fact that we have a premier who didn't even want to be an MLA!

I agree, there should be a rule that a replacement Premier 'must be a sitting member'

The best possible candidate won this, the one that will keep the NDP out.
