A tale of two provinces and contrasting NDP situations

Seven cabinet ministers deciding not to run a sign of things to come?

B.C. had a snap election call for Oct. 24. Saskatchewan had an election on Oct. 26.

The election in Saskatchewan was as per the fixed election date schedule.

In B.C., the NDP won the election with 55 seats out of a total of 87 seats.

In Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Party won 50 seats out of a total of 61 seats.

The Saskatchewan NDP have lost four elections in a row and in the last three elections, the NDP leaders even lost their own MLA seats.

Amazing how voters in B.C. and Saskatchewan are the direct opposite of each other.

B.C. NDP leader John Horgan never did really give a logical reason for calling a snap election, only to say that he wanted to know from the taxpayers, who they wanted to lead B.C. with the present pandemic.

Seven B.C. NDP cabinet ministers retired from politics and did not run in the election. This is an indication there is going to be a hidden agenda next spring in the budget. This hidden agenda will have major tax increases that will affect all taxpayers to be paying more out of their pockets.

These seven cabinet ministers did not want to run in the election because of the hidden agenda.

The hidden agenda also proves why Horgan called a snap election. He knows that with the hidden agenda, he could not win the scheduled fixed election date in October 2021. Horgan can now proceed with his hidden agenda as he now has a four-year mandate of governing B.C.

In the past, four provincial governments had elections called when they were not necessary. All four governments lost the election, but not in B.C, once again proving that B.C. voters are totally different from voters in the other nine provinces.

Many say Quebec is the backward province in Canada, but Quebec does not have one NDP MLA in its provincial legislature.

Once again, B.C. is the only province in Canada with a NDP government.

To all voters who voted for John Horgan, do not blame him for his upcoming hidden agenda. Blame yourselves for voting for a hidden agenda costing you more money to pay in taxes.
