Yesterday's post (I CAN'T support that kind of campaign, or a party that would allow a leadership team to okay that kind of campaigning) sure generated a lot of interest, and comments.
From personal emails I received, to comments on my own blog, to comments on the Armchair Mayor's blog, people certainly had thoughts on me spoiling my ballot. Here's a sampling of what folks had to say:
I never thought much of Ms. Clark, I think even less of her now and it is obvious she has to go. The “X”, no matter how big it is across the ballot won’t help. Hold your nose, put a smaller “X” where the pollsters tell you to and then pat yourself in the back, because that’s the rightful thing to do.
Good blog this time. I am in the same camp. You can slap me if you want but I think the best thing for BC now is a strong NDP majority putting the BC Liberals in the penalty box for 4 years and decimating the party like the Socreds under Vander Zalm/ Rita Johnson.
How’s that for crazy, LOL. I will not be voting this time. I refuse to be a part of the problem.
Use the thought but not my name.
It’s too bad that BC has basically a 2-party Provincial system. There is no balance of power as can happen with a 3-party legislature, and a minority government.
This time, for me, it comes down to a personal choice for the candidate. Do I wish to vote for someone who wouldn’t give me the time of day over a great concern in our neighbourhood spread over 4 years, or to a person who answered my very first email?
The answer is very simple and I can hardly wait for election day.
