They don't need Plecas assuming they keep Nanaimo

 

They need Plecas. If this mess he started backfires on him then he's baked and theres no way the Libs will allow another of their people to be Speaker....so yes, Plecas is a big thorn in the NDP side, but they need him stable and functioning

Recall campaign revving up for Darryl Plecas at the end of January. They only need 16,400 signatures from his Abbotsford riding

 

“We have over 300 volunteers to campaign throughout the riding,” said Roy. “With having all the volunteers, we’re breaking the entire riding up to a grid system and will have every home hit, morning, mid-day, night, twice every time until every signature is collected. We have a plan.”

 

 

if that's true they have a good chance of succeeding.    53 signatures per volunteer.

The Burnaby South federal NDP candidate lives in Toronto 

There is a long history of party leaders in Canada being initially elected in by-elections where they do not live.   This is nothing new.

 

Tommy Douglas was elected as the MP from Cowichan at one point.

John A was elected as MP for Victoria 

Mulroney was initially elected in Nova Scotia

In 1990 Jean Chretien returned to parliament as leader of the Liberals after he won a by-election in New Brunswick

Stockwell Day was elected Canadian Alliance leader and then ran in a BC riding, not Alberta where he lived

When Joe Clark was elected PC leader again in 2000 he ran in Nova Scotia

It's hard to put any faith in the garbage that pollsters have promulgated in recent years.

 

9,000 voters have opted to vote early, btw. That's a lot.

That's 20% of registered voters!

Compare that to the by-election in Kelowna-West almost one year ago. Similar number of registered voters, but just under 15,000 valid votes cast.

Be interesting to see who paid for the poll. I don't believe Mainstreet disclosed that.

The Liberals, apparently, have already come out to say the poll results are a little fishy so I don't think it was them.

I have a good idea who it was but we will see.

So, today's the day. 

 

I certainly don't expect the Liberals to win, but from what I've seen of Tony Harris, he seems like he'd be a valuable asset to the BC Liberals as a MLA.

A total of 9,322 individuals voted in advanced polls representing 20.6% of eligible voters.

I can’t find the voting place close times on Elections BC’s website nor when we can expect the first results to start coming in. I expect that will be publicized at some point tonight, yes?

Polls opened at 8 a.m. and you can see results and reaction in special byelection coverage live on CHEK Wednesday night starting at 8 p.m.
