Liberals Vulnerable To Tories: Ujjal Dosanjh

The next election campaign in Vancouver South should be interesting. Incumbent Liberal MP Ujjal Dosanjh barely defeated Conservative Wai Young by 20 votes in 2008. His support suffered a major collapse, and from what I can tell Wai Young will be back to fight another day. This riding went to the Progressive Conservatives from 1972 to 1993, but the Tories never really recovered from the massacre of 93 in Vancouver South, until 2008. Ujjal is treated as a "star candidate" because once upon a time he was Premier. But he was never elected Premier by the people, he overthrew his boss between elections. When he fought an election as Premier, he won two seats. I'm sorry, his party won two seats. Ujjal as the incumbent Premier did not win his own riding.

I suppose you could call Kim Campbell a star candidate, that doesn't mean she wins elections.


  1. Now that the Conservative "ethnic election strategy" is known, the Liberals will be reflecting on the "why didn't we think of that" strategy. It shall be a very interesting election and I am ready to vote and work for my Conservative candidate, Minister Gary Lunn!!

  2. The same Gary Lunn who used to be the Natural Resources Minister?


    Isn't he actually Alan Thick?

    Oh yeah, just as big of a comedian only not as much talent.

  3. And now you see why they post under "Anonymous"....
