Commentary
This ROBBINS poll conducted during the majority of interviews relating to the Olympic poll (see Canada polls beside this one) reveals that a majority of British Columbians are of the opinion that elected officials convicted of drinking and driving should be forced to resign. The number who answered "N0" are of the opinion that elected officials should i) be given a second chance; ii) Campbell got away with it, OR iii)ought to resign on their own.
The BC Liberal government has not had the foresight to deal with a multitude of problems which they should have reasonably seen coming.
The BC NDP has not convinced British Columbians that they will be any better.
The BC Green Party (like the federal Green Party) have not been able to convince BCers to join them.
The people want a 3rd party choice, (not a fringe party)to choose from.
