The 9,751 votes that swung the BC election

green we did itcrusty and fustyHere are the 12 BC ridings where a Liberal victory depended on a split in the progressive vote.

9,751 plus 12 more votes for the NDP and they would have had a majority in the legislature. Instead we have four more years of fish farms, pipelines, tankers, fracking and a Dam C so the frackers can get cheap energy…..

The Conservatives did their bit. They started out with 20% of the popular vote and declined to 5%. We can assume that 15% went to the Liberals.
