Royal Roads communications professor Dr. David Black was interviewed by the Times Colonist about the selection of entrepreneur Brennan Day as the new Liberal candidate for the Courtenay-Comox riding, which was won by the NDP last election by just 189 votes.

Here is an excerpt:

“Black…said the riding is a bellwether with both its current and previous populations. ‘We have here a kind of political barometer for where partisan opinion is in the province,’ Black said, adding that most polls are showing the NDP with a 10 to 15 point lead right now in the province.”
