...Especially In British Columbia.
Above are Nanos' rolling thunder numbers from BC for all of September.
Here's the thing.
Those rising numbers for Mr. Trudeau in Ontario just may hold up and sweep first place away from Mr. Harper nationally.
But don't forget that in this Con-Artisinal game of partially whacking-the-moles to make sure both of Harper's main opponents are equally dazed, but only partially to make sure that neither gets a real leg up, the smacking around of Mr. T. has only barely begun.
Regardless all that, as is evident by the numbers above, there really has not been any long, slow Quebec-like descent for Mr. Mulcair here in B.C.
Which means that we, that chunk of the seventy percent in Lotusland who wants to force change, have to keep our resolve and do our best to take away seats away from the Con rump out here in the Pacific time zone.
Well, because even if the Liberals come in first (and that is not a given at this point with almost three weeks to go), we need to make sure that the deal that is done in the end is NOT done with the CPC.
Especially, if say, the brain trust of a second place Con party were to lop off the head of their current leader in an attempt to pave the way with a Kenneyfied accord with Maggie's son.
Which, if it were to happen, has the potential to be very scary indeed.
After all, we here in British Columbia know exactly what just such a 'neoliberal' accord has meant for us provincially.
