Well I believe I'll vote for a third-party candidate

Nice to know that Greens watch The Simpsons too. From a CP story on Elizabeth May's whistle-stop tour:

It's a good thing for Green supporters, too, 40 of whom were waiting at the Saskatoon station for one of May's nocturnal rallies. They held signs that read: "I choo-choo choose Elizabeth May."

Go ahead. Throw your vote away!

PS. Don't blame me. I voted for Kodos last week.

If it's the carbon tax thing that is bothering BC - why would any of them vote Green - whose tax plan is even worse?

Some questions have no easy answers. At least not that I can see.

bah... its just a talking head looking for something to talk about.

They don't have to say things that make sense.

But say what you want Harris/decima believes that they are going to.

In British Columbia, the Conservatives lead with 37%, followed by the NDP with 26%, the
Greens at 19% and the Liberals at 15%.

They didn't give a margin of error, but with 1300 nationally the BC should be about 9% or so.... which would move the liberals below a statistical tie with the ndp.

No wonder Harper said he was going to ignore Dion and focus on the NDP.

I wouldn't worry about the greens tho... about 5-10% of their support will melt back to the partys it came from like usual.

Take a look at the sample size for BC in that poll.
