I have a close friend who will be voting Conservative for the first time in his life, and his description of the shift he’s seen within himself isn’t far off from yours.


I’m in the same boat. My views don’t align with the conservatives but our options are terrible. I honestly like Singh the best but how could I vote for laurel Collins? Her views are the same as Ben Isitts and that’s just terrifying. Also not sure on how the ndp would handle the economy during the recession that we are apparently headed for. I don’t trust Trudeau, he seems like a liar and a fraud. I actually thought about not voting

not voting is a reasonable option.

Put me in the pool for:

 

Lib - 135

Con - 131

NDP - 35

BQ - 32

Grn - 4

PPC - 0

Oth - 1

 

Turnout - about average overall, but going low-to-high from east-to-west (so, highest turnout in BC)

Who do you think is the ticket to a win, if Scheer loses:
- a Kenney
- a Bernier?

I'm hoping for Michelle Rempel.

I only had the Conservative candidate come to my door and have a little conversation, didn't see any others or have any door hangers delivered.

In nominating Collins, I suspect the NDP may be oblivious to how much resentment there is locally towards our city council, and how folks who traditionally skew NDP cannot stomach the local gang.

i adamantly do not want to vote for Laurel Collins.. she could be running for any party and i would not vote for her... sure voting for her could get her out of council but i strongly believe council would be no better for it, we would be stuck with a big election bill and end up with someone similar to her while she goes and runs off to a new higher profile job with a bigger paycheck and benefits while abandoning the people that just elected her to serve the city.. no thanks

 

from what i'm reading it's fairly safe to assume if i want to vote strategically, and vote for the party most likely to beat her my best bet would be to vote greens?

I don't think for a second that the NDP was obvious to anything. In my opinion this was part of a larger plan. 

 

I won't vote for Collins simply because I think that her planned successor would be even worse for the City.

I wonder if the machine is getting ready to position Jordan Reichert for a by-election run.

Do we know where Scheer is today? I assume he's not just chilling at home so his strategists probably decided wherever he has been would be more beneficial than Vancouver Island.

 

Scheer is in the lower mainland today according to his scheduled public appearances

In all fairness there are 20+ seats in greater Vancouver

 

He had a big final rally in Richmond last night. Richmond has two ridings which used to be safe Conservative seats, but in 2015 the Liberals took Steveston-Richmond East and were runners up in Richmond Centre by about 1,000 votes or 3%.

WTF do you get this sort of nonsense?!? I have to assume you are taking yet another swipe at the, "NDP machine", and I have to ask you why you think they would back a fringe lunatic who is on the same ballot as Laurel Collins today potentially taking away votes from her?!?

I meant Isitt's machine that got him, Collins, Dubow, Loveday and Potts elected.

 

Dude, chill out.

Does anyone know if anyone is streaming their election coverage for someone without any cable to watch? I know various places do for US but everything I've seen for Canada is just live blogs and such.

https://gem.cbc.ca/live/1606007875705

 

CTV also says it will stream live coverage, at https://www.ctvnews.ca/
 

I expect CHEK will also stream live on its website once BC polls close at 7pm.

CBC will be streaming apparently, both online and through their free CBC Gem streaming service. Details: https://www.cbc.ca/n...ow-to-1.5325977

I think most networks will do some form of live stream online. Global, CTV, and CBC (among others) are all putting their broadcasts online in addition to cable.
