I wrote a companion piece to this editorial about Elizabeth May's campaign to be included in the televised leaders' debate. On election day, early results showed Murray and Meredith in a dead heat, see-saw race. But the Conservatives will still fall short. I can’t see the Liberals losing here, they won by 12000 votes last time and the CPC aren’t strong in Vancouver, they barely managed 25% in any of the ridings prefaced by Vancouver. If the NDP isn’t putting out for the voters of Vancouver Quadra, why should the voters put out for the NDP? During the first term of the Campbell government, the Straight chronicled incredible environmental destruction in northeastern B.C., where a rush for natural-gas reserves was launched.

He also doesn’t talk enough about the inequalities in our society. This may be a centre-right riding provincially as even though the BC NDP won Vancouver-Point Grey, using these boundaries this would have been one of the BC Liberals strongest showings. They were much invigorated, and Liberals disheartened, by the too-close byelection result. but her future will also be decided by several other factors. The Liberals were pretty clearly the first out of the gate in the riding -- Joyce Murray's signs were up before those of anyone else (at least through the Point Grey/Dunbar area), with Dan Grice's appearing very shortly thereafter. The environment is extremely important to the voters of Vancouver Quadra, and the federal NDP has refused to promote a carbon tax. Also consider that it made the news that the Chinese New Year's card drop seems to be a repeat of the ‘Indian Day’ gaffe in 2004. Since electing Prime Minister John Turner in 1984, the riding has consistently sent a … Although Gauthier resigned after the other two by-elections had already been called, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the by-election on August 11 for the same date as the others.[3]. If I would predict now I would predict a much smaller turnout as should be expected and a party vote of about 19,000 Liberal, 16,000 Conservative, 6,000 Green and 5,000 NDP. Game over: easy Liberal win. The Vancouver Quadra EDA Board is a group of volunteers who are dedicated to supporting the Liberal Party. [10], Beatty, who was a New Democratic Party MLA in the Saskatchewan legislature until her federal candidacy was announced, also faced some criticism, both for her switch in party affiliations and for resigning to run federally just seven weeks after being reelected in the 2007 provincial election. My weigh on this riding is: Currently leaning Liberal, but if the Conservatives nominate Mary McNeil, it may be an interesting race. The Bloc Québécois, which came in second in the seat in 2006, selected Belgian-born, Lacanian psychoanalyst Jean-Paul Gilson as their candidate.

First elected MLA for North Island in 2005, Trevena was re-elected in 2009, 2013 and 2017, when she was appointed the NDP government’s minister of transportation and infrastructure.

Unless the NDP vote flees green, this resignation makes this virtually a Liberal lock, even if the Tory vote goes up (and it will). With No NDP candidate I don't see how this is competitive. David Eby. Her campaign was focussed on environmental issues.

The Greens poll well in BC but have never shown any organizational ability. Although she’s retiring from politics, Trevena said she still hopes to foster positive change. A third factor is the ndp/greens and what they do for candidates, you would assume after this weak finish the ndp will run a new candidate next election. Liberal candidate for North Island, Young climate activists want new Green leader’s attention, B.C.

I’m done, I need my freedom. With 50% of the 'public purse' going to Health Care - a very good point of experience to have on a resume. With the recent oil spill there is no way this is going to the Conservatives. Despite Coad’s hard work as a candidate, the NDP organization isn’t doing everything it can to win this by-election. Anybody who thinks the Conservatives will win here must be smoking a lot of BC weed. Wow...the Liberals were short just 151 votes of another Outremont.

The Red Tories are gone from the Conservatives; gone to the Liberals and Greens.

There are a lot of basements, towers and low-rises.

The very latest Ipsos-Reid, released February 16, suggests the Conservatives have a wide lead in BC as a whole (Conservative 46%, 26% Liberal and 19% NDP)...the 2006 results were much narrower 37% Conservative, 27 Liberal and 29% NDP.

Never mind this also includes UBC and Kitsilano which tend to be centre-left so even if the Tories won Shaughnessy, Kerrisdale, and Marine Drive area, this would be offset by Kitsilano and UBC.

Both the Liberals and Conservatives are a full force in this riding right now. Create your citations, reference lists and bibliographies automatically using the APA, MLA, Chicago, or Harvard referencing styles.

The by-election was scheduled for September 8. The by-election was triggered when Lapierre resigned from the House on January 28, to accept a position as a political analyst with Quebec television network TVA and Montreal radio station 98.5 FM. The results of the by-election shouldn't be used to inform the results this time.

The Liberals, seeing very little of a Tory campaign, thought they had the riding in the bag and normally Liberal voters thought it was safe to sit it out or cast a protest vote against Dion's leadership.

Quadra is the safest Liberal seat in Western Canada. There is good news to share since my last MP update. Mary also sits on the Vancouver Police Board, so understands urban policing issues (which the Feds - as the top tax collector need to do more on) so that will be another plus. Notably, Roberval—Lac-Saint-Jean was a district which the Tories had heavily targeted in the 2006 election but had narrowly lost. Mary McNeil is extremely well networked in the riding, having lived on the West side her entire life. But, Stephen Harper desperately needs a Vancouver MP to replace Emerson and will spend a lot of time and money on this. Red since '84, this is the only truly 'safe' Liberal seat in BC. oooh wait! With Conservative support slipping as the economy slows, and Deb Meredith having been unable to win the riding in the byelection, this seat only goes blue if the NDP and Greens manage to split the progressive vote. Loooong time ago, the Liberals have decent support in BC now to sweep the Vancouver ridings(except Vancouver East). Green Party candidate Dan Grice, a technology consultant, ran a campaign based on cutting down on carbon emissions and tax shifting, hoping for an electoral breakthrough for his party. A vote for Grice will send a message to every federal party that it’s time for a carbon tax. The Liberal lead was marginal even before the Georgia Straight endorsed Dan Grice and Elizabeth May spent several days campaigning in Vancouver Quadra, and should be virtually nonexistent now.

This riding could be fertile ground for the CPC if it wasn't for Dosanjh's personal popularity. It's interesting to see Marc Emery endorsing Grice's candidacy. Search is currently unavailable.

Easy Liberal hold. [17] Godfrey's office stated the delay was due to a private members bill Godfrey had worked on not being given royal assent until June 26.[15]. Besides which, the Liberals have already proven in Ottawa that they won’t stop the Harper Conservatives. It is too wealthy to elect an NDP MP, but with UBC, and progressive neighbourhoods like Kitsilano, there is no way the Tories can win here. Likewise Manhattan is a pretty wealthy area yet votes solidly Democrat. The ministry of water, land, and air protection, which Murray headed, lost more than 1,000 civil servants during her tenure, according to numbers contained in the government’s budget estimates.

Apparently, there are non-Chinese residents whose last names happen to be Lee who aren't all amused about getting those cards in the mail (including those in Toronto Centre). The election result presented a major breakthrough for the Green Party.

If Dan Grice is elected Monday, not only will Vancouver-Quadra voters make history, they will assure May a spot on the televised debates in the next federal general election.

The Conservative candidate in Vancouver Quadra, Deborah Meredith, missed several all-candidates meetings for the by-election, including two attended by the Straight.
