NDP goes negative after the election

Failure to acknowledge the facts: 40.3 per cent of 858 participants in a recent post-election poll feel that the NDP lost the election because negative campaigning trumped the NDP’s “positive” approach.

Another 23.9 per cent felt the NDP lacked views with appeal, 22 per cent felt Adrian Dix was a flawed candidate and 7.3 per cent blamed it on media bias. Finally, 6.4 per cent blamed it on a split vote with the Conservatives.

The discernible stat that catches the common eye is the 40.3 per cent who felt the NDP’s negative-free approach ultimately failed them.

A question now arises: why begin negative political propaganda after the smoke has cleared?

Long-time devout public servants, such as Michele Cadario, Nick Facey, and Rishi Sharma, were targeted by the opposition at the legislature for receiving sudden pay-raises upon Premier Clark’s discretion.

Take Rishi Sharma: he has served the B.C. legislature for 14 years, and has not only worked vigorously to promote his party, but has devoted considerable time to volunteering in the community as well.

What the opposition has failed to mention are the facts.

For example, Sharma promised to donate to his community any lift he received in pay – promising to donate back two months worth of his salary each year.
