The NDP more than doubled the BCL here last time. To anger voters here enough to lose this riding again, the NDP would have to form government first.

All MLA ridings receive $119,000 per year to cover riding expenses, therefore, the legislative rule is that when working in their home riding, all expenses become NON ALLOWABLE EXPENSES.
I checked expense claims for Bruce Ralston, and when working in his home riding, he is making expense claims for lunches, trans link fares, parking, and taxi. A NO NO.
I also wonder, do the legislature employees writing out the expense cheques know exactly what is claimable. Seems the whole system is just a license to print money.

Very popular incumbent seeking re-election, low-income riding, significant drug and homelessness issues, above-average crime rate, and lots and lots of renters.
I he BCNDP win only one seat in Surrey, it will be this one.
ek, if the BCCNDP win only 5 seats provincially, Surrey-Whalley will be one of them.
No need to CCTCC this one; BCND lock.
