Election Update

This seems to be an "issue-less" campaign for now, and if things are going this way, I'm sure that the Liberals will form government again.

However, this majority government will be much smaller. I predict that the NDP will win about 25-30 seats. The BC Liberals will lose a lot of support in Vancouver Island ridings. Also, there are tough battles in Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port-Coquitlam, Port Moody, and Surrey.

In the Interior, the toughest battles should be in Kamloops - due to the privatization of the Coquhalla Highway.

On the other hand, the media is focusing so much on the sponsorship scandal and have their attention on federal politics. The provincial campaign is basically "off" their radar screen.

Tonight could be the last chance for Carole James and the NDP to turn things around at the Leaders Debate. Should be interesting!!

By the way, does Carole James look "scary" on the NDP web-site??

That is not a very flattering picture. You should never use close ups.
