Question #5
Kim Jung – Un, leader of the nation of North Korea has the plausible military capacity to hit the North American continent or other US property in Guam and Alaska. It is therefore possible that one of North Korea's ballistic missiles could conceivably hit Victoria or Vancouver, after running off course or some other mistake. If you were made confident that U.S. President Donald Trump could wipe out North Korea's ballistic missile capacity, its leadership and do so with 5,000 or less casualties in North Korea, would you give him the go ahead on a pre preemptive strike?
Yes    51 %
No    42 %
Question #6
The Constitution of Canada provides the federal government with exclusive powers over transportation (railways/highways are a good example). Pipelines carrying commercial oil are held under the Constitution to be part of transportation. In your opinion should federal laws applying to such things as Canada's railway or national highway infrastructure be considered the same as transportation of commercial oil, which cannot claim equal benefit for all Canadian persons potential use - as highways and railways do?
Yes    27 %
No    50 %
Commentary
Q 1
John Horgan & BC New Democrat Party hold a good sized lead over (former Surrey mayor) Dianne Watts & BC Liberal Party, following the recent provincial general election win in British Columbia and the subsequent resignation of BC Liberal leader & British Columbia Premier Christy Clark (officially August 4, 2017).
Only the BC Green Party is holding its voter base, while John Horgan and BC New Democrats and Dianne Watts and BC Liberals slide downward.
This RSR ROBBINS survey in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia (the (majority population base) suggests the BC Greens are remaining relevant in the hearts and minds of voters & that politics in BC – politics (and life) will become quite different because of this. This sentiment was covered in the mainstream press – so as far as that goes – these numbers affirm that theory.
The Horgan BC NDP government has called for Inquiry into Site C Dam construction – already knee deep in tax payers money (and malfeasance and conflict allegations and assertions). He has also announced a BC Human Rights Commission – no mention was made of this during the Election however. We have heard nothing from Minister of Housing Affordability (or whatever the real ministry name) Selina Robinson – who to date appears too much of a light weight for the file and David Eby for Minister of Justice – who is already twisting more than he stands. The Province of Ontario came to their housing crisis long after British Columbia but Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne has moved with greater surety and swiftness than the docile BC government has. What? Problem? Where? The BC NDP still has control of government, both in real terms, in terms of ability to function less fearfully (resignation of Christy Clark as leader) and in public support. This RSR ROBBINS poll – suggests no one is yet cheering the BC NDP – but its summer, who knows?
Historically, the BC 'Socreds' (early free enterprise party) attracted just less than [50%] of voter support. Under Gordon Campbell these numbers floundered under [40%], not hitting above [44%]. A determination of decided respondents in this poll would place BC NDP & BC Green combined support now (15%) below Election Day vote, all to the blame of the BC New Democrats. If we excluded Glen P. Robbins and Modern Conservative Party of BC and Undecided altogether and only considered the support for each of the existing 3 main parties – we would end up with BC NDP (47%), BC Liberals (36%) & BC Greens (17%) in the Lower Mainland of BC.
Christy Clark knew all along that the BC Liberal ship (of stinky state) was taking on water – and jumped like an Italian ship captain – permitting her own regard than the regard of others (Kohlberg I). Given that the BC Election Day was recent, the shenanigans and confusion around Christy Clark, her sudden resignation – it is not surprising that more than a few BC voters are confounded –
