What does it take to form a new party? How many people are members of nsmb?

The hivemind of nsmb should be elected as premier.
All of us are better than any one of us.

edit:
looks pretty easy to form your own party, if you intend to take it seriously?

I do intend to take it seriously.

Im trying to figure out if its possible to get this funded and properly organized.

Or if there is an easier route working with existing system, but unfortunately it pretty well seems to be a two party system.

PS; I'm aware of the Greens, but they have pigeon holed themselves, IMO.

They have already done much of the heavy lifting of getting a new political party up and running.
Best to glom on and influence.
Plus, I suspect they aren't far off from the things dear to your heart?

The thing is people give too much credit to the average punters political awareness. Most people under 35 are more concerned with Netflix and most over are either dumb as a stick or shit scared of change.

Too many people will lose that sweet sweet home equity if things change

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

THIS X2.

The Globe and others are saying the housing correction is most likely to come from an economy downturn, not rising rates etc. So now 'we're all in this together' as economy = jobs…so the luxury of saying 'no' is fading or else we risk having a housing 'house of cards' come crashing down.

So the NDP jobs plan better be gold plated otherwise Christy's team is the only hope…

I'd vote for my last stinky shit for premier before I vote for Christy and her corrupt band of pirates.

you that the odds are relatively high that even typically non-corrupt people can become corruptible when put in a position of considerable influence or power.

by the way happy birthday!

The "correction" could be a deep double-whammy. Almost 19% of BC's economy is Real Estate. BC's economy is now more dependent on Real Estate than Alberta's is on Oil:

A housing selloff could be catastrophic, especially if people start getting laid off in a downturn.

As homes go underwater (their market resale value falls below what their owners paid for them), hundreds of thousands of could be in the hole for a lot of money. That will not end well …
