Final day of campaigning for party leaders in BC election


While Clark has spent much of the campaign in ridings where her party is in a pitched battle with the NDP, her party likely made a decision to return to Abbotsford - a BC Liberal stronghold - for a final show of strength and support prior to election day.

Clark has a packed schedule on the final day of the four-week campaign, with stops scheduled across the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island.

- This election has 87 seats up for grabs, but at dissolution the Liberals held 47 seats in the legislature, the NDP 35, and there were three Independents including Weaver, the first Green to be elected to the house.

Since the post-debate poll released by Ipsos in late April, the B.C. Greens have witnessed their support rise three points from 14 percent up to 17 percent.

BC voters head to the polls Tuesday, May 9 to elect the next to the Legislative Assembly in Victoria.

That being said, there is no way I could bring myself to vote for Lori Iannidinardo, because her past actions have shown me she doesn't actually follow through on her stated beliefs.

Getting "big money out of politics", proportional representation and climate change are among the Greens' top priorities, said Weaver, whose party has banned corporate and union donations.


Aaron Mueller, a teacher-librarian at Parkland Secondary School in North Saanich, accused Clark of refusing to engage with anyone but party supporters and donors.

Horgan began the campaign as the leader who connected best on two other issues, but now trails Clark on helping residents become homeowners (Clark 28%, Horgan 24%, Weaver 11%) and Weaver on fundraising for political parties (Weaver 22%, Clark 20%, Horgan 19%).

"We know people got it wrong in B.C.in 2013".

- Horgan said everywhere he's been during the election campaign, people have been telling him they can't wait to have a government that works for them.

Among British Columbians who voted for the Liberal Party in the 2015 Canadian federal election, the BC Liberals continue to lead (51%) with the BC NDP a distant second (32%).

BC Liberal voters say they are motivated primarily by the party's ideas and policies (38%), a desire for stability (29%) and the party's candidate in their riding (13%).
