Good riddance. It was getting pretty hard to vote the way I wanted to locally, when Campbell was the nasty side-effect provincially.

No difference for me federaly OR provincialy up here its all NDP … because the 1st nations carries the vote

the town of smithers always votes liberal or conservative and I could see this pretty easily when I was a returning officer (pays 300$ a day BTW) BUT out on the res they vote red

I work in the construction industry, so I can't say I didn't like a lot of what he did and I am not the only one considering that he was re-elected twice. Obviously, like most BCers I was pissed about the lies of the HST and I also did not support his privatization efforts, but all in all, BC has been in great shape during his tenure.

BC rail made sense, I have plant on the old BC rail line, CN's performance is much improved.

they would have had do go out and buy/lease alot of rail cars if they wanted to keep that line running.

Most of the women in my life work in the public healthcare system. From what I've heard, it's probably a good thing he resigned voluntarily before someone decided to step in.

It also has to be noted that this is the right move, both for the province and for the party. I can't say as I'm going to miss the guy, but we've had waaaay worse.

I can't say I know for sure, but I found this graph which I thought was interesting in the Tyee.

The Tyee saw this as evidence that the NDP did the best job overall, but what I noticed is that the Liberals were the only party to keep BC's growth consistently higher than the rest of Canada. It was that bit of time in the late nineties where BC was doing shit compared to the rest of Canada that probably hurt the NDP the most.
