The party’s operatives typically flock across the West like geese when any election is at hand. Notley herself has done it.

The crucial political battle of Premier Rachel Notley’s career just started. It’s the B.C. election campaign.

Patrick Milligan She has seen this before with the wild Rose and the Conservatives. I can only hope the NDP and green cancel eachother out as the wrp and Conservatives did in Alberta. I suspect Notley she is watching to see how the math works. Needlessly taking action and stepping into bc to support the pipeline, and then by default, the Liberals, would do more harm than good.

Peter McClure This split has been in the works since that day at the party convention when Notley chose oilpatch jobs for Alberta over the fanaticism of the LEAP wing of the federal organization. 

When the BC-NDP decided to pirate the planks of the Greens, they did
 so at the expense of their traditional support by the labour movement. Mulcair made a similar mistake in the last election by shifting to the right to try to co-opt some of the Liberal vote. 

In Alberta, the NDP is now the centrist party, with both Wild Rose and the PCs pulling even further to the right.

With growing credibility amongst the middle-class voters, it would be foolish of Notley to publicly ally herself with the 'shut-'em-down' anti-oil factions in BC.

Julie Ali You are joking right? The NDP are not a centrist party. They are the new PCs. I guess if you think the PCs were red Tories --almost liberal you could somehow fit the NDP as centrists once upon a time. Now that the NDP have gone right there are in my opinion no centrist parties left except the Liberals and I don't know if they will be able to get their act together in time for the next election. I'm guessing the NDP folks in power will do anything to stay in power--even go to the point of being on their belly for big oil. So odd. This was a party that railed against fracking and now in power hands over the $30 million that Mr. Trudeau provided for our province for economic stimulation to pay for the orphan well program of the oil and gas industry. Why are the NDP folks paying for the liabilities of big oil? Why wasn't the money used for real economic stimulation to help families out of work? I'm guessing that pandering to big oil might be seen as a good thing by citizens but in my opinion most of us aren't fooled. The NDP folks are not living their values but certainly they are living up to opportunities to try to get rehired.

Julie Ali I agree with you. I think it is doubtful that the NDP will get anything done with the pipelines. It's just that they were born under an unlucky star and got elected at a bust time. As well it appears that there is enough public dissent in BC to prevent any pipeline being built for a while at least.

Brian David She got approval for two pipelines. One on the Trans mountain corridor and one on Line 3 going to the us. 

They've continued funding for the nwr refinery
