HST: To Hate or Not to Hate-That is the Question!

must say, I have been hugely disappointed with my favourite news talk radio: CKNW. First Christy Clark, whom I thought gave up politics and went into broadcast media, gave up her show on CKNW to return to politics to run in the Premier race. And she won! Much thanks to her popularity on the Christy Clark Show. I must admit, I wasn’t a fan of her views and takes. I would credit the success of her program to her remarkable radio voice. Like wow!

The STVerdict!

In large rural constituencies, it is possible that most or all elected MLAs may come from a major town within that riding. Why? Because most of the voters would come from the same town. The same could apply to city constituencies like in Vancouver, where west side residents are more likely to vote than eastsiders, for example. Thus, electing city councilors from their locale. (This is the same argument of ‘western alienation’ that Western Canada has been clamouring for years!)
