There're calls for her to do so, but I doubt if her successor can save the BC Liberals - hey, maybe Justin Trudeau can make a try.

I've heard that said a lot, but I've yet to hear anyone say what a Liberal is. I would say they ARE a true Liberal based on Liberal being a free enterprise party. Liberals are also renowned for taxation.

JLM in actual fact the BC Liberal Party is the rebuilt Social Credit party
Yes it is the coalition of the Federal Conservatives and the Federal Liberals.
Once again the Party is about to sink in the waters of self interest.
She is done and I believe the people will be waiting for what comes after,
the immediate future will feature the NDP.

Yep, for however long that future will be!

I don't see the Provincial Conservatives taking over, so, yes, it will be the NDP.

'Fraid so, it's getting scary. When we see all the new taxes, the H.S.T./G.S.T. debacle will seem like a picnic!

You'll probably have it reinstated or nailed as a transit or infrastructure tax on gas.

No, the BC liberal party was originally a Liberal Party.Then the socreds imploded, and campbell and his cronies did an end run and took over the Party.

Maybe they have learned their lesson. Too bad the Conservatives can't take up the slack.

True but since the Socreds hijacked the Liberal party, and they were the ruling conservatives for so long, the Party is more conservative than liberal. They are still selling off our grandkids' future, keeping Whacky Bennett's legacy alive.

In hind sight old Wacky looks pretty good, although at the time we regarded him as a miserable old curmudgeon. He had a lot of basic common sense like in not spending money you don't have- deficits and debt was unknown. He had more knowledge than all the Liberals and N.D.P. today combined. He was the boss and didn't take any sh*T. Possibly the only Canadian alive today who was even close might be Ralph Klein.

Yeah, it's too bad, she just doesn't have it as far as being premier is concerned- you have to be downright mean for that job- Bill Bennett (from Cranbrook) would make an ideal premier, he doesn't take any sh*t from anybody.

damngrumpy..."the immediate future will feature the NDP
Serious question, is that really a good thing? From anything I've heard about any NDP, it's not..?
In Alberta, I would not want the NDP running the show but the leader and his sidekick sure throw alot of crap at the government

I think petros has nailed it. Alberta government insists "there will be no new taxes". We keep seeing more 'fees' for things. Budget comes down later today. We'll see how many more 'fees' skyrocket. And how many 'tax increases' are snuck in the back door with a different name. Premier promised the world during leadership vote and Alberta government promised the world during elections. So many voters were royally sucked in.

I think once in a blue moon an N.D.P. Gov't can be a good thing just to balance things off, but in good times not in times of austerity. There are a few things (damn few) that Gov't is better at managing than the private sector and those are things that shouldn't be done for profit. There is no way enterpreneurs should be profiting off the handicapped and unfortunate.
