NDP, Liberals neck and neck in B.C. polls, but Christy Clark could have edge
The Liberals also potentially have a turnout advantage. Mainstreet finds that the Liberals have stronger supporters and give the party a three-point lead among those voters who are most likely to vote and least likely to change their minds. Both Mainstreet and Ipsos give the Liberals a significant lead among older British Columbians, who also vote in larger numbers.
This is ABSOLUTELY BEWILDERING given that older British Columbians have been offered next to nothing by the Liberals, and yet they remember and are so afraid of the letters NDP, they vote from fear not sensibility.
If we had the BPP ( BC BOOMER PLUS ) party, with a platform that catered to what boomers and seniors need and want in this province, we would steal votes away from the liberals.
Seniors across the province are so upset about hospital care, emergency over crowding, surgical wait times, lack of affordable housing, home care, poverty and yet, like my parents , they vote for the party not the policies.
The irony is that older British Columbians value voting more than young people, and yet the Liberals are trying to appeal to families and young people with the economy, jobs & housing, infrastructure , benefits of the site C dam, roads,etc etc and the seniors will vote them IN despite knowing that none of this benefits their daily lives.
And so the result is, without the young people showing up at the polling booth, Liberals win, because Generation X, Y , Z, and Millennia’s don’t trust any government. No wonder; the Centre For Public Integrity has said;” we are at the lowest level of trust in government and companies since the 1930’s”.
Hey young people, next time you see a senior on the street, THANK them, for doing you a favour by electing a party that has ZERO interest in their welfare.
And then when you get old and you need the same things that they need and you are pissed off at the government for not caring, remember May 9th, 2017, when you had ten good excuses for not voting, or had better things to do than prepare for the day either you or parents will need the services that simply aren’t there.
There is a term for all of this , and it’s called “Common Sense Disorder”.

On the BIG BROADCAST this week we open the Xmas Treasure Chest of music and memories of some of my favourites. Our special guest Ken Lavigne is a singer, composer, communicator and consummate entertainer. Currently joined onstage by his band (Piano, Guitar, Bass, Drums and Violin), has charmed his way into the hearts of concert goers across North America with his sincere delivery of ballads, show tunes and classical crossover hits in the style of Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban. It’s easy to see why one New York critic described him as having “a voice of liquid gold”. In his new touring concert, Mr. Lavigne takes his audience on an riveting and enchanting journey, retelling his personal campaign to sing at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops. It’s a unbelievable account of a man who, against all odds found a way to live out his dream of singing on the world’s most prestigious concert stage. Told with spectacular songs and entertaining and hilarious stories Mr Lavigne embodies the spirit of the underdog – audacity, tenacity, tragedy and ultimately… triumph.

WHAT YOU MISSED ON THE SHOW TODAY
With the shock of the U.S. election still causing or stomachs to be upset and our minds confused and bewildered with anxiety, It’s the perfect time to sit back and remember the good times that we enjoyed as kids, teenagers and parents. Let’s drift back to those happy times with the memories and the music. I hope you’ll join me TODAY. Take some time to breathe and reminisce !
Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, rock music’s man of letters whose songs fused religious imagery with themes of redemption and sexual desire, earning him critical and popular acclaim, has died at the age of 82, according to a Facebook post on his official page. We’ll pay tribute to this Canadian icon in music and words.
Shortly after his 82nd birthday, Leonard Cohen sat down with KCRW’s Chris Douridas for an interview. The two talked about Cohen’s health, the role of religion in his life, his 14th and final album, You Want It Darker, and much more.
The conversation took place at the Canadian Consulate in Los Angeles on Oct. 13 as part of a special listening session for You Want It Darker. It’s the last interview Cohen gave before his death on November 7.
After thanking the audience for coming — and Douridas for his support — Cohen said he may have made a mistake in October when he told The New Yorker he was ready to die. “I may have exaggerated,” he tells Douridas. “One is given to self-dramatization from time to time.” Then he added, “I intend to live forever.”
Cohen was joined at the interview and listening session by his son and producer, Adam Cohen. He released a statement late Wednesday night about his father’s passing:
“My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records. He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humour.”
ARE AMERICANS REALLY GOING TO FLEE TO CANADA AFTER THE TRUMP WIN?
Before this week’s stunning election result, many Americans, including Boomers, declared their intentions, perhaps jokingly, that they would flee to Canada if Donald Trump pulled off a win for U.S. president. As Trump continued to rack up votes late Tuesday and into Wednesday, it appeared that many of them might be serious. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website crashed around 11 p.m. on Tuesday due to what a department spokesperson called “a significant increase in the volume of traffic.” Since then, the department has confirmed that visitors from the U.S. accounted for half of that surge. And so, I’m going to interview someone who is an expert on knowing exactly what it will take for Boomers, their families, and friends to move to Canada. Immigration lawyer, Sandra Hakanson will join me.
This week Roger Currie, observer of life, on the Canadian prairies and elsewhere in the universe as it unfolds remembers a friend at Remembrance Day and he also reminds us that in the lifetime of the Boomer generation he cannot recall a more dramatic contrast than what we saw this past week with the U.S. election compared to that amazing night in 2008 when Obama was elected on hope and change.
