BC Premier Gordon Campbell steps down

It's a bit of a shock, but things just weren't looking up for him come next election.

My questions to conservative-leaning folks in BC:

With the useless carbon tax and the HST, these aren't exactly conservative things are they?

Are you finally going to throw money and support behind the BC Conservative Party and get a strong leader with some good candidates or continue to prop up the Liberals just so the NDP don't win?

Because now's your chance.

Update:  Leadership rumours are already abound.

It's just a pity that McGuinty is too dumb and stupid to do the same. After all he as bought his directorship with Samsung on the back of Ontarians so will have a job.

Then maybe the Harper Sales Tax can be killed in both provinces.

Unfortunately, the BC Conservative Party can't get past petty in-fighting.

Currently, the BC Conservatives are a tiny, leaderless fringe party beset by infighting, with a bunch of cranks fighting for the scraps. As much as I hate to say it, a successful free-enterprise party in British Columbia needs a credible leader and team, and the backing of Howe Street.

Until the BC Conservatives elect a credible, moderate conservative leader with gravitas (like Danielle Smith in Alberta) and cleans house of the cranks, they are not going anywhere.
