BC election

John Horgan’s NDP will form B.C.’s government. But a few key ridings could still come down to mail-in ballots.
We likely won’t know the full result for several weeks.
Lorraine Brett called Rowling’s “TERF wars” manifesto the author’s "best work."
Chilliwack-Kent Liberal candidate Laurie Throness made the remarks during a debate this week.
A regrettable comment from John Horgan about race and calm moderation stood out on debate night.
In a video leaked this weekend, Liberal candidate Jane Thornthwaite accuses a female NDP candidate of seducing men.
Meryam Haddad appealed her removal from the Green Party leadership race.
Premier John Horgan likely wants a majority government.
There are now four MLAs with indigenous heritage.
There was a lot of stress-eating.
No poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being. Worthy causes, but unattainable aspirations at first glance. What is the meaning of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) if, as critics attest, their attainment is "virtually impossible?"
We cannot allow PharmaCare to force any of the 25,000 British Columbians living with Crohn's or colitis to give up a treatment that's working well in exchange for a lower cost alternative. This is a possibility in the province and a worrying prospect for people who have finally found stability.
British Columbia is larger than many countries and our provincial government is in charge of key portfolios; education, natural resources, health, justice, agriculture, and municipalities, all of which have a huge impact beyond our provincial borders.
During this B.C. election, decision-makers say they're acting on climate change and conserving the environment without acknowledging that out-of-control housing costs work in direct opposition to those goals. Hundreds of thousands of people commute into and out of cities they cannot afford to live in.
This election I am voting NDP because I am tired of fundraising tens of thousands of dollars every year for basic supplies. I am tired of special needs students spending years on wait lists for support they need to fully participate in their education. I am tired of our school board having to decided which service or support they will cut every year. I am tired of attending consultations for school closures that pit communities against each other in fights over which school deserves to stay open.
Clark’s opponents released her schedule ahead of the May 9 election.
I can't say that I was surprised to see your reaction to Linda when she approached you in the grocery store. The fact that you couldn't carry on a two-minute conversation with an average citizen simply because she won't be voting for you is a pretty clear example of how you feel about the majority of citizens in B.C.
Risking our financial future for short-sighted PR tactics has cost B.C. billions of dollars, and taxpayers foot the bill. Despite her heavy PR spins about jobs, her tactics, in reality, have produced lower wages, focused on dying sectors and delayed core infrastructure and maintenance to the point that affordable housing and our schools are crumbling.
John Horgan and the B.C. NDP's proposal for universal $10-a-day child care is sensible, fully costed and will provide immediate relief for parents. We also know that providing quality early learning experiences for our children has incredible benefits to them, the school system and communities.
The May 9 election will give B.C. residents the opportunity to ask candidates if they will end the grizzly hunt if elected. So far, the B.C. NDP and Green Party say they would ban grizzly trophy hunting (but allow grizzly hunting for food), whereas the B.C. Liberals continue to defend and promote the trophy hunt as "well-managed," despite scientific evidence to the contrary.
