In the 2005 provincial election, NDP candidate Mel Lehan gathered 10,248 votes – just 2,250 ballots short of Premier Gordon Campbell in Vancouver-Point Grey. Not a bad result for the newbie politician. This time around Lehan is predicting that he’ll close the gap thanks to a shift of Green Party voters his way.
Should make for an interesting result tomorrow night. Hopefully Lehan’s pre-recorded telemarketing campaign calls with 2:45 seconds left in the Canucks game tonight didn’t piss off too many hockey fans.
