"Chances are the next government of B.C. will be chosen by approximately half of all eligible voters. That means that even in a landslide the winning party will probably have the support of no more than a quarter of all the province’s citizens."

"People who want politics to be better and are staying away because it’s not better reinforce the bad side of politics… If they want politics that’s more focused on the centre, that’s more open to compromise and more balanced, they need to show up so that campaign strategists see them as people likely to vote and then seek their support.
So long as they stay home, the campaign strategists are going to focus on mobilizing their base, which is going to mean wedge issues and fear politics.”
