@ElectBCCP best possible showings in #bcelxn13

The fact that the BC Conservative Party is running less then a full slate of candidates has reduced their chances. Boundary- Similkameen was there best chance at actually winning a seat, not just a chance to place or show.

These are the constituencies that offer the best chance at a strong performance for the BC Conservative Party.

Chilliwack-Hope: 24.9% (2nd Place)

Chilliwack: 22.1% (3rd Place)

Stikine: 18.7% (2nd Place)

Only two of these seats are over the 20% threshold, we decided to include Stikine as third possibility because it was close to the threshold.
