The NDP is dead

Does not matter when the writ is dropped. The 2017 B.C. provincial election will be won by the B.C. Liberals.

Recent letter writer Bernie Smith writes: “I can hardly wait for the writ to be dropped a year from now.”

Does not matter when the writ is dropped. The 2017 B.C. provincial election will be won by the B.C. Liberals.

Why? In the 2011 federal election, the federal NDP won 103 seats and in the 2015 federal election, the federal NDP won 44 seats.

Saskatchewan will have a provincial election on April 4, and the official opposition party, the NDP, will still be the opposition party after the election.

Manitoba will have a provincial election on April 19 and critics say that the present NDP government will lose the election and finish in third place.

The NDP government in Alberta is presently destroying Alberta and recent polls show that the Alberta NDP are in third place in popularity with the Alberta taxpayers. Unbelievable for a government being in power for only 10 months.

The Alberta NDP only won government because of vote splitting. Previous NDP governments in B.C. also won government because of vote splitting.

Smith fails to realize that the NDP is dead all across Canada.
