VBH is changing slowly. For decades it was the bastion of unionised govt employees. Then it became the bastion of retired unionised govt employees. Lots of old cranky activists living off indexed taxpayer funded pensions had time to push their agenda on the rest.
With all the new condos going up and those retired unionised govt employees taking advantage of capitalism and cashing out their $million properties its diluting the old tanky base. And being that most current unionised govt employees are out on Westshore etc then there isnt a replacement taking place.
Maybe not this election but the next we may see a change in the base. Watch the numbers this election and see if the NDP vote is as strong as the last 2 elections...thats the 'tell'
