Of course they count but i can't count the number of comment I have seen  (not here) that say the rest of the province doesn't count because it didn't vote the right way.

They don't actually, that's why the Liberals only got 11 out of 42 seats in the last election.

The Fraser Health Region is 1.6 million people compared to 1.25 for Vancouver Coastal.

Did the Liberal party get 37% of the vote last time?

No but it was very concentrated in one area. I don't see that changing much. Where the votes are is more important than how many. If it were only total votes, Scheer would be PM.

Liberals give Canadians a gazillion million billion free dollars, more money than any Canadian government has ever given people ever in the history of country by leaps and bounds, and their support goes up while the CPC has a lame duck and nobody gives an eff about the NDP.  Ok.

So you think no money should have been provided because of the pandemic?

No.  I'm saying people like "free" money.

The 37% in BC would be in the same place as the last election, metro Vancouver and the North Shore. The rest of the province would go Tory, NDP and Green.

Where do you get this info from?

Being up 10% in BC from the 2019 election is huge...

So you're saying they're doing the right thing and people appreciate that sort of governance.... 
 
How enjoyable do you think it is for people getting all this "free money" if you used to make $5000 per month but now get $2000 per month because of the gov't program?  You think people are ecstatic about needing this?   ::)

So do you think JT will call an election? Wait till the Conservatives get a new leader and the bills start coming in.

The question is whether an election is called before the CPC chooses a new leader.  Liberals obviously want a majority.

Not likely to...  He doesn’t need to, given who the next Conservative leader is going to be.

Liberals decided they wanted to shut down Parliament during a state of emergency so their MPs can hang out and drink beer over the lovely summer months while the Liberals spend gazillions of dollars that won't be properly scrutinized in Parliament.

Meanwhile, though the Liberals are giving out money to everyone, they won't properly fund the AG so that they can do appropriate audits.  https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/house-committee-unanimous-in-petitioning-morneau-to-cover-auditor-generals-funding-shortfall

So Liberals want to suppress oversight of their massive spending.  Good job.  Enjoy your summer vacation, paid for by the billions you don't want any oversight on.  Oh yeah and the government wage subsidy the parties are taking too.
