Future bleak for B.C. NDP

To the Editor,

The B.C. NDP aren’t in for a very good year.

I don’t believe that the B.C. NDP are happy about the upcoming B.C. election because of what is happening under NDP rule in Manitoba and Nova Scotia.

Also, if you review the results of the B.C. 2009 provincial election and gave the NDP 48 per cent of the popular vote, it would still be the official opposition party.

Federally, they are now in third place overall in the polls with the federal Liberals taking second place behind the majority Conservative government.
