North Shore News Editorial wrote that the HST results split along obvious party lines..............! Doesn't appear to have.

".........Voters also acted with their hearts, with the results splitting along obvious party lines. This should not have been a re-run of the 2009 election."    North Shore News   "A costly Victory"   Editorial


What appears to have happened, is that voters split the BC Liberals' support, right down the middle!.....on the topic of the HST.
