With BC Liberals jumping ship en masse, I reflected on my role in helping to destroy this 21st century free enterprise party.
Paying $10 to join the party short term and vote in Christy Clark seemed like the only thing to do. Clark winning 52-48 was probably the last thing any ‘true’ B.C. Liberal wanted. So I take some credit in helping to make a permanent change in B.C. politics.
Given that electoral voting reform failed, and no Liberals I shared the stage with in the last election were supportive of BC-STV, it should be no surprise that power will fall to the NDP again.
Conservative leader John Cummins and company (or will it be a shinier suit for the BC Cons?) will surely help split the vote up and get even more NDP into Victoria.
I’ll probably still be stuck paying 12 per cent on private sales of vehicles and trying to figure out why I am another $15,000 in the hole from the days of HST.
Having removed my name from the voters list, I am doubtful I’ll even bother adding it back on next May. I told you so.
