Well, We Repelled All Boarders
Our community, Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, denied the barbarians even a toehold last night. Not one seat was to be had by Liberal or Conservative.
The Tory 'home on the range,' the oil and gas areas of central and eastern BC grew a bit. Vancouver and BC's Lower Mainland is still Liberal territory of a sort. They lost seven seats including the crown jewel, Vancouver-Granville, that went to Jody Wilson-Raybould. The NDP dominates the coast from Washington to Alaska.
The big losers last night were the Trudeau Liberals and the Singh New Dems. The Libs dropped 20 seats but the NDP dropped a proportionately far greater 15-20 seats from 44 in 2015 to 39 at dissolution to just 24 today.
