The data is based on data compiled by Elections Canada from a random sample of the last two municipal polls conducted by양산출장마사지 Mainstreet Research in January and February. The poll showed a slight lead for Green Party candidates Rob McEwan and Jonathan Denis in B.C. and Nanaimo, B.C.

“It’s a significant swing that we should be aware of, I believe, because you can’t buy a political vote that way,” said May’s campaign manager Adam Gant.
