I kind of agree about the arrogance... I'm just not 100% sure about the alternative.

The NDP platform looks REALLY EXPENSIVE to my eyes.

The stuff Horgan is talking about on his TV commercials does strike an emotional chord with me.  I'm concerned about the things he talks about. Affordability. All the fees and tolls and premiums we pay.   I feel terrible for people who live in areas where they have to pay a toll every time they want to drive anywhere. The cost of housing in the populous areas of this province is completely through the roof, and I don't think the Liberals remotely give a crap. That concerns me.

I'm trepid about Horgan too but I'm willing to give him a chance.  At least there is hope he'll work out whereas Christie Clark has ruined the province as far as I'm concerned.
 She waited way too long to act on the housing market and that alone merits a boot out the door. 

Horgan isn't making empty promises like 'a doctor for every family' but he's at least trying what could potentially end up being feasible solution to the shortage of doctors by coming up with urgent care centres.  I think that's one of the most brilliant things I've heard in a long time.  Somewhere to go in between doctor and hospitals for things like stitches and casts and ease up with wait lines in emergencies.

To me healthcare and housing are the two biggest issues and he seems to recognize that.  We moved to the outskirts years ago and I still have to travel an hour to go see my family doctor because nobody here is taking new patients and clinics all close by noon. 

As my family grew I find we've become even priced out of the burbs and I don't want to move but we may not have a choice.  We're not rich, but we both make above average wages, it's ridiculous that we have to be eyeing the Fraser Valley just to have a little extra room.

I hate Christie Clark with a passion.
