It Is Finished
After 16-uninterrupted years of rule by possibly the most corrupt provincial government since Grant Devine's, British Columbians are rid of the BC Liberal government.
The Lt. Gov., perhaps fearful of angry mobs taking to the streets with pitchforks and torches, has taken the safe route and invited NDP leader, John Horgan, to form the province's next government. Many feared she might instead call another election, giving Christy Clark one last desperate chance to claw her way back to power.
One bunch of Liberals has been sent packing. Next up is the Liberal gang in Ottawa. With his numbers ebbing in the latest polls, the Dauphin is going to have to do some tough calculations. Are there more Liberal seats to be lost in British Columbia than his party can ever dream of capturing in Alberta? Well, duh.
This is not a great situation for two-faced prime minister who pocketed a handy number of seats on the Left Coast on the strength of promises he tossed aside like so much garbage once he gained power. Out here we've got scores to settle with Trudeau the Lesser and many of us would see him pay dearly for his perfidy.
But enough of Christy Clark and Justin Trudeau and their ilk. This is a great day to be a Green or First Nations or even a New Dem.
It turns out Christy did try to get the Lt. Gov. to call another election. Her argument was, in essence, the veiled threat that a Horgan government would be unstable, too weak to govern, and her Liberals would see to just that. In other words, right from the get go these despicable Liberals intend to do everything they can to subvert government in British Columbia. What a pack of utter reprobates.
