The Scott Ross: Success Defeated Alison Redford

Alison Redford was defeated because her party is too successful. And there’s proof.

In politics there wouldn’t be many opportunities to test such a theory; to really know if it was the success of Alberta’s Progressive Conservatives that caused Redford to resign. Luckily for this experiment there just happens to be a control group next . . . → Read More: The Scott Ross: Success Defeated Alison Redford

The Scott Ross: From Canada’s Five Female Premiers To Three

The Scott Ross: Christy Clark Is Unstoppable

The Scott Ross: Christy Clark Loses & So Does Gender Equality

Christy Clark had as much chance of winning BC’s election today as Canadian politics has gender equality, and that’s close to zero.

With six female premiers, soon to be five, Canada looks like a pretty equitable place, but just as with Christy Clark’s chances on election day, looks can be deceiving.

The Scott Ross: The Real Problem For BC Liberals

It’s not the low poll numbers or the ethnic voter outreach controversy, the real problem for the BC Liberals is that there are BC Liberals who want a problem.

Considering it was just 2011 when the federal Conservatives’ ethnic voter strategy made headlines it’s more than obvious that the current outrage against Christy Clark and . . . → Read More: The Scott Ross: The Real Problem For BC Liberals

The Disaffected Lib: British Columbia’s Tumblin’ Crispy Christy Clark

British Columbia’s unelected, unelectable and outgoing premier, Crispy Christy Clark, was nudged ever closer to the exit today – by her own party members.

More than a hundred BC Libs met in Surrey this morning to demand Clark resign to let somebody else, presumably almost anybody,  lead the government party into the May election.  It’s . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: British Columbia’s Tumblin’ Crispy Christy Clark

The Scott Ross: Powerful Women Shouldn’t Be News

Kathleen Wynne becoming our sixth female premier isn’t newsworthy, what will be, is when a premier’s gender doesn’t make headlines.

It’s of course understandable why newspapers should report on Ontario’s first female premier, it is historic, but ultimately what will determine progress on gender equality is whether the media and Canadians in general eventually . . . → Read More: The Scott Ross: Powerful Women Shouldn’t Be News

The Scott Ross: Kevin Falcon’s BC Liberal Commitment In Doubt

The Scott Ross: BC Teachers Hurt The Left & Help The Right

The teachers’ strike in British Columbia this week was bad for the province but good for the BC Liberals.
