Advance Voting

Conventional wisdom holds that heavy (relatively speaking) turnout at advance polls means a change in government — a rush for people who want change to get out and vote for it.

If this holds true, the current numbers do not bode well for the Liberals. Country wide - at a time of year when people are supposed to be less interested - 300,000 more people voted in advance compared to last year.

For what it’s worth, David Emerson appears to have given up and just thrown in the towel in Vancouver Kingsway. With it looking like an Ian Waddel riding anyway, why not? Who wants to go from senior minister to opposition in only eighteen months? He doesn’t have the temperment.
