Liberals expected to win again; Greens to capture three seats

"Forestry is huge in British Columbia and we said right from the beginning we will use every tool at our disposal to get a softwood agreement and protect B.C.jobs", Mayencourt said.

On the last day of the B.C. election campaign, Christy Clark made a final push for votes on Vancouver Island. British Columbians head to the polls tomorrow (Tuesday).

"I definitely wanted to make the point that this isn't going to be an easy photo op", says protester Dock Currie who plans to vote NDP.

The NDP's share of the overall vote is expected to drop from the last election because of defections to the Greens, the report says, while the Greens should nab a bigger portion of the popular vote and three seats on Vancouver Island, if they continue to engage voters online.

"We came down here to try to talk to Christy because she doesn't talk to us and she hasn't apologized to teachers for the hurt that she's caused", says Parkland teacher librarian Aaron Mueller, who was on a professional development day.

The Liberal attacks peaked April 21, when the party put out five news releases in a single day attacking Horgan's positions on various topics including how the NDP would pay for its campaign promises and claiming a lack of attention on his part to the province's north.

"The B.C. Greens are surging across the province as people realize for the first time in a generation they actually have something to vote for, not against", Weaver told CHEK News from the campaign trail in Sidney.

"After 16 years of people at the top getting their way, it's time the people in this room, the people in this community and the people in this province had a government that's working for them", he said at a stop in Surrey.
