BC election: Key developments from Day 28

"It's a healthy democracy when you have people who protest and have their voices heard, and you've got to expect that if you're going to get into the democratic process and into politics", said Stephen Roberts, BC Liberal candidate for Saanich North and the Islands.

Christy Clark says British Columbia voters who want more jobs and no deficits will have a clear choice when they cast their ballots during Tuesday's provincial election.

He says the Mainstreet polling shows that while affordable housing has been a growing concern, jobs and the economy are the top issue. Perhaps Cowichan Valley where Green Leader Andrew Weaver visited over the weekend.

Clark's team says the Liberal leader has logged more than 12,500 kilometres on this election campaign - more than last election - visiting 50 different communities.

He also blamed Prime Minister Modi for the severe hit taken by the tourism sector in the Valley in the wake of the unrest. He was successful to a large extent in shortest of period", Mehbooba said.

British Columbia led Canada's other provinces in economic growth in 2015 and is forecast to have repeated this in 2016 while also producing five consecutive balanced budgets.

On the eve of the election, NDP Leader John Horgan appealed to anyone who is sitting on the fence to vote for him. Election campaigns are about a marketplace of ideas. "We haven't had any support from the B.C. Liberal government".

"The B.C. Greens are surging across the province as people realize for the first time in a generation they actually have something to vote for, not against", Weaver told CHEK News from the campaign trail in Sidney. Supporters of the two main opposition parties place their emphasis on ideas and policies (36% among NDP voters, 39% among Green voters), desire for change (33% among NDP voters, 25% among Green voters) and disgust with other contending candidates (14% among NDP voters, 23% among Green voters).

Tempers flared as a throng of Clark supporters met protesters' shouts with their own chants of "Christy!" and "Four more years!"
