Dr. Paul Rowe, Professor and Coordinator of Political and International Studies

As B.C. voters prepare to cast their ballots in this month's B.C. provincial elections, Dr. Paul Rowe, TWU Professor and Coordinator of Political and International Studies, provides insight and analysis to help people better understand the current political context.

"As of Friday, Oct. 2, at 1 p.m. – candidate nominations closed and all hopefuls had to have been submitted to Elections BC," wrote editor Ryan Uytdewilligen for the Aldergrove Star.

"The snap provincial election, called on Sept. 21 by Premier John Horgan, can now stand on somewhat sturdier ground seeing as how the names on ballots are finalized.

Paul Rowe, a professor in political studies at Trinity Western University (TWU), told the Aldergrove Star that the rushed election amid a global crisis is not unprecedented."
