Gregor Robertson for BC NDP leader--and Premier in 2017
Yesterday's convincing general election victory for Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver in the Vancouver civic elections shows that competent centrist government is what voters really want--and if it can also be ethical with a green and progressive tinge, so much the better.
Applying those same precepts to the provincial scene, I have long maintained that what voters want is someone who can pick up where Mike Harcourt left off-- a more competent and effective version of Harcourt--and NOT some one who picks up where Glen Clark left off and provides us with a more effective version of him.
Since Allan Blakeney, Roy Romanow , David Vickers and Tom Berger are not available, that just leaves Gregor Robertson.
The real question is: how do we get around the problem that is Adrian Dix?
To put it bluntly--how do we get rid of him?
