There seems to be an embarrassment of choice!

Vancouver Island Party? This Wexit Party sounds interesting. Probably overlaps a bit with the Cascadia group though.

BC Ecosocialists?  British Columbia Excalibur Party?  Sounds like a good cartoon.

Instead of an election, how about a cage match? All the leaders go in, one comes out. Welcome to the Thunderdome.

I'll bet the conservatives have a record result in the next election. Not saying they'll get any seats, but the bc libs seem a bit lost right now. I'll bet more people will throw the cons a vote for the hell of it

They're so disorganized that they won't be able to run for than a handful of candidates. Any riding where they don't run, the BC Liberals will hoover up their support.

Does anyone actually like the bc liberals? I feel like they are just the "not ndp" choice

I don't perceive any huge excitement about them recently. Never been the same since losing Bloy and Krueger.

But seriously, I don't think Wilkinson has really distinguished himself as leader. All feels kind of low energy.

Most of the time I can't even remember his name.

Wilkinson is not the Leader they need, he's very effective and has a lot to bring to the table. A leader needs to have charisma and appeal to the average person.

^And Wilkinson has absolutely no charisma, he seems angry all the time as well.

I have never voted for the NDP but I just might this time. I think they are doing a pretty good job with the pandemic and once they see the financial hole we are in they will start to approve pipelines.

They just might. But the obstacle could be Trudeau. Freeland has already intimated how she feels about the energy equation.

Who do folks think would be a better bet? I at one time thought Polak, but I think she's more engaging in person and comes across less so in public, on camera, etc. Plus she could easily be painted as ultra-conservative, even though I'm not sure she really is.

Remind me who the leader is. They have one, don't they?

Wilkinson is right to stay quiet. He’s got nothing to add, really, during a state of emergency. The knives will come out once we have a better feel for the fall COVID numbers and impacts. Todd Stone is being groomed, no doubt, for the leadership.

Lori Ackermann 

Stephen Fuhr 

Jas Johal

Michael Lee

Todd Stone

 

Could also be one of the new MLAs, like Bruce Banman who's running Abbotsford South. He's the former mayor of Abbotsford. Or potentially someone else who's currently municipal? Although I can't imagine who.

 

Todd Stone would definitely be the best choice. He's rural, but has a background in the tech sector and is a moderate, so would probably be more appealing to Lower Mainland voters.

B.C. NDP members have become embroiled in a bitter internal battle in a key battleground riding on the eve of a potential election, after the party’s entire Fraser-Nicola riding association resigned and pledged to work against the candidate.

The 13-person riding association quit en masse Friday, accusing B.C. NDP president Craig Keating and executive director Raj Sihota of disrespectful behaviour in a campaign to appoint local First Nations lawyer Aaron Sumexheltza as the candidate against the wishes of local members.

^ This maneuver has existed since the beginning of party politics within all parties.

What do the grassroots foot soldiers know anyways? What does democracy have to do with which candidate should represent a party in any given riding? Father knows best when it comes to big business.

The “D” in NDP in this case doesn’t mean democracy....it’s more a case of disappointment.

Grace Lore, who came 11th in the 2018 CoV local election (about 1500 votes shy of a council seat) is seeking the NDP nomination in Victoria-Beacon Hill, against Stephanie Papik.
