Keeping the socialist hordes at bay: 4 things BC’s Premier Clark must do to stay in power

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

The BC Election is over and the Lieutenant Governor has asked Premier Clark to continue to govern. In just under two weeks we’ll have the recount and final vote tallies in a couple of ridings the NDP won in close races that could put the BC Liberals back into majority territory if there’s a change. 

Ideally, I wanted to take a break from talking about the election but there’s been far too much speculation out there in the press --- partly from the media party, partly from progressives dying to chime in and pressure the Greens and NDP into a coalition, and partly from far too pessimistic BC Liberal and conservative voters.

To address this, I made a short list of what’s next for the BC Liberals, for this province, and why I’m more optimistic than most about the concessions, if any, the Liberals will make to the Green Party.

Watch as I show you four key things Premier Clark and the BC Liberals have to do to stay in power.

Whether any of this will matter, mostly comes down to whether the Liberals get that 44th seat and a majority or if someone from the NDP or Greens decides to cross the floor.

But if things hold the way they are, these four things are how the BC Liberals can hold onto power and be back ready to win a majority next time to continue to keep the socialist hordes behind the gates.

Stupid inept conservative party couldn’t even make a dent.

My grandfather spent most of his working life and all of his retirement years in the East Kootenays and he always said that if they ever had a referendum in southeastern BC on joining Alberta the results would be very embarrassing in Victoria.

Sorry Christopher, make that Mr. Wilson. No excuse, but I had just finished watching the Robinson update.

Good stuff Mr. Robinson, and I agree with your points, particularly that political donations should not be tax deductible. I don’t see why a socialist should support my donations to W/R and CPC any more than why I should support theirs to the NDP or LPC.

However, I still think that physical geographical line down the centre that corresponds to the political division cannot be healthy. Fly over country in BC is speaking. Except that one sore thumb where hypocritical Alberta boomers retired to after earning their money off resources.

I cannot think of such a distinct provincial alienation problem, except maybe Ontario. Even the Notley fiasco in Alberta was spread throughout, as is the, hopeful solution.

WILSON , I like those 4 basics
Have a well deserved " extra " day off — you should have a longer break , you worked hard the last little while
I’m going with your optimism, but……..

Wilson—You have stated a great format for the Liberals to follow, at least for the next two weeks.

Billy Howard, Amen!

Just as important as stopping corporate and union political donations and activity is banning 3rd parties’ not-so-subtle promotion of (mostly) leftist politicians and then LIE about not being funded by those same political parties or billionaire ideologues.
