NDP bus spins its wheels as all parties leaders push before Tuesday’s election

NDP bus spins its wheels as B.C. election nears

SURREY, B.C. — With just one day left before the British Columbia election, the New Democrats’ campaign was left spinning its wheels — literally.

At an election stop in Surrey on Monday, the NDP bus was hung up on a bump, leaving some of its wheels briefly spinning in the air.

NDP Leader John Horgan tweeted that he was less worried about his bus and more concerned about British Columbians getting stuck with four more years of Liberal Leader Christy Clark.

A large tow truck got the bus back on the road.

The party made light of the incident, playing the song “Truck Got Stuck” by Canadian country singer Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans after everyone got back on the bus.
