Commentary
The BC New Democrats attract high numbers of support in every region of the province, while the BC Liberals after governing for a dozen years appear to be getting shown the door by BC Voters (2009).
The BC Conservatives are growing support particularly in the Fraser Valley and North and Interior. The BC Greens are very strong on Vancouver Island, Vancouver and Suburban Vancouver.
The BC New Democrats appear set to win an estimated 55-70 of the 85 seats in the BC Legislature.
One half of British Columbians, and slightly more women than men, support removing the carbon tax from the price of gasoline at BC pumps.
The BC Liberals announced during the survey period that they intend to freeze carbon tax prices which were previously set to rise in July 2013. How does this impact on the recent provincial budget?
Federal Conservative MP Mark Warawa’s now defunct private members bill seeking to ban abortion based on the sex of the unborn child, attracts support from nearly one in two British Columbians – with a number of respondents to this question wondering aloud how such a ban might be realistically implemented.
A huge majority of British Columbians are “stunned”, in “disbelief” and “angry” at the prospect that Ottawa could be collecting the PST – which in FACT continues to be the practice.
