BC Election - Efficiency of the Vote

I heard on the radio this morning yet another reference to efficiency of the vote in the B.C. election.  The generally accepted assumption is that the NDP has the more efficient vote.

This is something that I can use my projection model to measure.  Using a projection based on the 2009 election, TC calculates that the BC Liberal vote is very slightly more efficient but the difference is negligible.  It is too small to be worth thinking about.
