Just posting the number of agreements on that questionnaire is deceiving; not all candidates are listed for every answer. Yang has been attributed to a stance on all questions, so we are more likely to hit a ‘match’ with him.

There are undoubtedly redneck bits of BC and Liberal bits of Alberta but on the whole are you really arguing Alberta is as liberal, as left wing as BC?

Nowhere in my post did I say there weren't redneck bits of BC either, I just pointed out BC is, on average, more liberal than Alberta.

He probably means the geographical bit of BC that is absolutely everywhere that is not the island, vancouver or whistler. So, the 90% geographical bit that contains 20% of the population.

The liberal bits in Alberta probably run about 50/50 split in Calgary and Edmonton, with the mountains being heavily liberal and the rural bits being heavily conservative. There is more of a population base in rural Alberta than it's BC equivalent, which causes the province as a whole to regularly skew conservative.

To say that Alberta is conservative and BC liberal is a little disingenuous.

I find Albertans to be realists to a higher degree, instead of idealists. That doesn't have a political representation, but because of the level of political representation of liberal in BC and conservative in Alberta, it seems that way. Even when Alberta voted NDP, there was still a realist bent to the peoples views, as opposed to idealist, which Notley found out quickly, and adjusted to.

Outside of Vancouver, BC is redneck as it gets. Always have a laugh at people from Vancouver who think their city is the entire province.

No where is worse than rural Quebec however.

Rural Quebec is tremendously racist.

wish the states had a maximum age to run for president, as they do a minimum age.
If you turn 70 or older in the election year, you shouldn't be able to run.

This just makes me so sad.

Virginians using the right to assemble and right to free speech to protest what they see as an infringement of their 2nd AMD rights.

And people are upset.
