Discussing B.C. election results

Several UBC political scientists spoke with numerous media outlets about the results of the B.C. election.

Richard Johnston told the Canadian Press there’s a possibility there won’t be a minority government. The CP story appeared on CTV, the Toronto Star, Toronto Sun and Metro News. Johnston was also quoted in the Globe and Mail, Maclean’s, the Vancouver Sun, The Province, and The Tyee.

Johnston and Kathryn Harrison also spoke to the National Observer, the Canadian Press (Castanet and Huffington Post) and Metro News. Harrison also spoke to CBC about the flawed narrative that Green voters split the vote on the left.

Maxwell Cameron spoke to the Vancouver Sun about the potential shift to a green economy with the influence of the Green party.

Gerald Baier spoke to CBC about the NDP ignoring rural ridings is a risky electoral prospect. He was also quoted in another CBC story on the Greens’ historic win and in a CTV story.

Global News interviewed David Moscrop, a UBC political scientist about the “fairly uncommon” nature of a minority government in B.C. Moscrop also spoke to the National Post and Metro News about the influence of the Green party.

Carey Doberstein spoke to the Kelowna Daily Courier about the decrease in popular vote support for the NDP in the Central Okanagan.
