What happened in BC?

While the Tories did better than they ever dreamed in PQ, they dropped something in the range of six seats in BC. What happened?

I have to think that British Columbians figured out how to actually strategicly vote. They didn't run scared to the Liberals in Tory/NDP races; instead, they organized around candidates who could actually win. The NDP vote went up nationally, but only marginally - but in close races, the New Democrat often pulled through.

The loss of Tory seats in BC is a victory for smart tactical voting. Another reason for me to be pleased, tonight.
