BC Election - the Biggest Stories

1) Electoral Reform was resoundingly defeated and is now likely to be off of the political agenda for the next generation.

2) Voter turn out was REALLY low. Looks there will be fewer than 1.5 million voters this time, that means turn out of less than 50%

3) Angus Reid Strategies was right and all the other pollsters were wrong.

4) About 88% of the public voted for the top two parties, the highest seen since the 1986 election

5) The Greens did badly, dropping to just over 8%, clearly the environment was not an issue.
