Late gains put British Columbia's ruling Liberals in frame for election win

New Democratic Party Leader John Horgan voted in the advance polls and spends all day in Metro Vancouver, with two events in Surrey. The Liberals ran with the interaction, painting Horgan as an angry man who doesn't have the temperament to govern.

The rest said they either hadn't decided or would support one of B.C.'s smaller parties or independent candidates.

The two main parties are keeping about four-in-five of their voters from the 2013 provincial election (79% for the BC Liberals, 80% for the BC NDP). "That's the message we want people to hear". Election campaigns are about a marketplace of ideas.

While Clark has spent much of the campaign in ridings where her party is in a pitched battle with the NDP, her party likely chose to return to Abbotsford - a BC Liberal stronghold - for a final show of strength and support prior to election day.

"We're working on professionally developing ourselves in order to better support kids in B.C., but we haven't been able to do that in the last 12 years because we haven't had the resources, we haven't had the support, we haven't had the specialist teacher roles", said Parkland teacher-librarian Aaron Mueller. However, with up to 16 percent of registered voters still undecided, the winning party on election night will be the one who can incentivize the most voters to show up to the polls. "I'm just working hard to make sure British Columbian's know what I stand for, what I believe in and the choice, the really, really stark choice in this election".

But along with all the cheers for Clark as she walked down the street, here were also jeers for the B.C. Liberal leader. Across British Columbia, 49% of residents say they would be "very upset" if the BC Liberals form the government again, while 46% claim they would be "very upset" if the BC NDP wins the election.

At an election stop in Surrey, the NDP bus was hung up on a bump, leaving some of its wheels briefly spinning in the air.

"We can't afford four more years of Clark", Horgan told supporters.
