Bikes, Drugs, Sex and Politics
Sometimes I write stuff and come up with the headline. Sometimes I come up with the headline and write stuff. Guess which method I am utilizing today, motherfuckers?
One of the reasons why (according to me) the BCNDP lost a few elections in a row is because the party lost, for the most part, what I consider the biker vote. The biker vote, also known as the Steppenwolf vote, is really a much wider swath of the population than those names imply. They are citizens, nearly all working class, who nearly always vote who are concerned with bread and butter issues. i.e. feeding their fucking families.
The party reached an awful lot of those folks in the last election and would still be in Opposition if they had not done so. The party still needs to reach a lot of those very same people in the Interior and elsewhere if it is to increase its share of the vote in coming elections.
The party would have lost all chance of reaching such citizens by not proceeding with Site C.
That is all.
