While some might whine and complain about the planned redistribution of federal ridings on Vancouver Island and in the Comox Valley, I’m as pleased as punch!
By dividing the CV in the proposed way, the riding of Vancouver Island North gets rid of people who mainly vote for loony leftist parties; thus ensuring the North Island will be represented by Conservative MPs for a long, long time. (Let’s hope Mr. Duncan runs again.)
In fact, even by lumping most of the CV’s tree-huggers, hippies, enviro-extremists and Communists with the new Nanaimo-Alberni riding, the Conservative MP, Dr. James Lunney, will still win his riding.
There won’t be enough left-wing nuts to overcome the strong Conservative plurality in last year’s election.
So rejoice fellow Conservatives! We have a bright future on Vancouver Island!
