Sorry for not being up-and-up on my neighbour province to the west's party politics, but are the BC Conservatives the renamed Democratic Reform BC, or are they a new party?

Word is that Democratic Reform BC has kicked the bucket. The BC Conservatives are expected to run at least 25 candidates and will probably achieve 2% of the vote overall.

Also the BC Greens logo is different.

Is someoene actually doing BC2009?

If possible, could you make this (or make a version that is) compatible with BCP4E? Most PM4E scenarios get some kind of graphics error when loaded by BCP4E. I'd like to keep all my BC scenarios in BCP4E for conciseness.

Just a question, as about 35 to 40% of the population in BC can be classified as center-right or right wingers is the BC Liberals Party will lose that support due to their unpopular carbon tax?

BTW, why are the BCNDP opposed to the Carbon Tax, as they they can considered more left-wing than the BC Liberals in term of the environment?

My understanding is that the BC Greens are going to try and take away the vote of some moderate and right leaning pro-environment right-wingers (see: green tories) while also holding onto their socially progressive base, we'll see if it happens. The BC NDP are trying to branch out a bit more to get more support, that's why they're opposed to the carbon tax.

Interesting question. The jury is probably still 'out' on the question of the popularity of the carbon tax and the prospect that the BCLibs could lose votes as a result.

Socialists and Conservatives tend to view issues from an economic perspective first and from a liberal or social perspective second. Liberals tend to view issues from a liberal/social perspective first and an economic perspective second. The policy ticks all the right boxes for liberals and brings conservatives on board because it seeks not to increase the overall tax burden. Socialist opposition seems primarily built around a view that the tax burden is felt most by the poorest.

On the economic left-right scale, the BCNDP will consider that they are to the left of the BCLibs on this issue. However, on the liberal/social left-right scale, they are to the right. Most liberal parties tend to be to the left of most socialist parties on environmental issues. What I find most curious about the BC situation is that this still holds true.

There are some exceptions in Canada, for exemple the Québec Liberal Party is seen as center-right (but not as right as the ADQ) as a loose coalition of federalist francophones, seniors people (80-85% of the 65+ plus in Québec are liberals), the business sector, farmers, anglophones and allophones (immigrants). Jean Charest in a former PC leader and about a third of the PLQ members tend to have links with the Conservatives. So, basically the PQ touches other groups (the labour sector, trade unions, travallists, social-democrats, artists, part (about 35%) of the francophone middle-class, some lefists, centrist nationalists and a small minority of right-wing nationalists who sitched over mainly to the ADQ in the last few years). The ADQ has especially right-wing nationalists, people with some social conservative values (in some rural areas like the Beauce which is the region in Québec whis is the most conservative especially in term of free entreprise), some buisness people, libertarians, farmers and the 25-40 (Generation X) vote. Québec Solidaire had some left-pacific protest vote (like RESPECT in the UK) and people of lower classes and some left-wing Yuppies or some Left-Wing ''urban people'' or some in the artistic community especially in urban areas. The Green Party (which could be considered center-right) has the vote of some environmentalists and anglophone left-wing protest vote.

In Ontario, the Liberal Party could be seen in the 80's as more right wing than the PC before the Harris years. Dalton McGuinty also said that he consider himself as more right-wing (at least economically) than many former PC premiers (like Bill Davis or John Robarts).

I'm not sure what your message is about CanadianTory. Are you actually working on this scenario?
