Welcome to Tyee’s reader poll.

Tyee Poll: What Can’t You Believe the BC Liberals Are Now Supporting?

British Columbia’s post-election period of limbo has presented its latest twist: the BC Liberals unveiling a Throne Speech totally packed with progressive policy ideas… many put forward by their political opponents during the election campaign.

No wonder some are calling it a deathbed conversion for Christy Clark’s party.

Confused? You’re not the only one.

For starters, the Liberals are promising to eliminate tolls on the Port Mann and Golden Ears Bridges, an election vow plucked from the NDP platform.

Then there’s the new commitment to provide $1 billion in child care to create 60,000 new affordable spaces over four years. That’s more than four times the spaces they promised before the election.

And, perhaps one of the biggest shockers, the Liberals are also planning to impose a number of restrictions on political donations.

The Tyee’s legislative reporter Andrew MacLeod outlines a few more highlights from the Liberals in his story here, and a Port Coquitlam councillor muses on how Liberal faithfuls must be feeling about this seeming betrayal of their party ideals here.

We’re wondering what has you most bamboozled.
