According to the latest poll, the BC Conservatives are leading all parties, just ahead of the governing New Democrat Party.   

BC Conservatives gain first polling lead in over 50 years

A Mainstreet Research poll from April 26 has John Rustad’s Conservatives one point ahead of the NDP, and just five months away from the next provincial election.

A surge of support for the BC Conservatives has taken place in recent months, after virtually being dormant for decades. The party hasn’t been in office since 1952, though it’s also true the BC United Party—before its recent collapse—was somewhat Conservative in nature.

Nonetheless, for something that seemed unfathomable even one year ago, it’s a remarkable shift.

The Conservatives haven’t only become neck-and-neck with Premier David Eby’s NDP, but they’ve gotten bold in the process.

Earlier this week, the Conservatives rubbed public-opinion polls in NDP MLAs faces when their leader, John Rustad, introduced a motion titled “Fairness in Women’s and Girls’ Sports Act.” The act sought to ban trans-identified biological men from participating in women’s sports, where they often dominate, and in the process prevent actual women from having a fair chance to succeed.

The act didn’t pass, with the NDP voting against it, showing everyone where they stand on the moral quandary. 

At the national level, of course, the NDP has literally mandated that White men go to the back of the line at public conventions where their party leaders later expressed an appreciation for Antifa.   

Trans rights vs women’s rights

The majority of Canadians have made it clear they aren’t fully on board with gender ideology, at least not in terms of what it states, or the demands it makes, such as letting biological men destroy women in their own sports leagues. 

A new report from the Macdonald-Laurier Institute suggests Canadians predominantly hold anti-woke positions on transgender topics — and significantly oppose the radical trans activist stances that the majority of politicians currently espouse.  

Despite gender ideology claiming that gender identity has nothing to do with biological sex, the nationwide public-opinion poll showed that a mere 15% of respondents believe “there’s no such thing as biological sex, only gender preference.”

And, about two-thirds oppose trans women competing in women’s sports.
