    As an aside, looking at the distributions of Stable Conservative Seats: Fucking get it together, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

    Hey, we just drop kicked a 40 year provincial government dynasty to the curb, we might be able to mix it up for the federal election too.

    Fingers crossed, anywah.

    I really, really hope that any seats you guys bop down in the prairies don't pop back up around Québec City.

    Those fuckers will throw a monkey wrench in every campaign.

    If there's one thing we can depend on in this crazy mixed up world of ours, it's Newfoundland.

    Well, Alberta went full Kraft Dinner* in the provincial elections, so there's hope they'll also vote NDP federally.

    *I mean they voted orange**.

    **Orange is the NDP colour.

    Man, there are barely more ridings in all of Saskatchewan than there are in just Montreal.

    Also that is nnnot surprising (the vote breakdown I mean).

    I hope Ontario stops being afraid of a NDP government because of what they did in the 90s as a provincial party (my dad brings it up and ot drives me insane). Maybe Ontario will realize that Harpers continued the destruction of its manufacturing? I hope so.

    You would be surprised at how many gm emoployees still believe in the cons despite the fact they have essentially ensured GMs gone in 2019.

    Ontario went Conservative in 2011 because an unusually weak LP and unusually strong NDP split the left vote. I fully expect them to go back to full red this time around.

    All I can say looking at those Saskatchewan numbers;
    Saskatchewan, you're going to disappoint Brent Butt if you act like that. You don't want to disappoint Brent Butt, do you?
    Sure, he's not actually from there, but he did film his show in you.

    I would remind everyone that when it comes to politics, Alberta internally and Alberta externally are two different animals.

    That being said, my riding might go Liberal for the first time in a decade.

    According to that one "Who should I vote for?" site, I'm 77% liberal, 74% NDP, 72% Communist, 65% Green and a whopping 42% Conservative.

    So, I mean, I could really swing either way with the top three. What's a few percentage points?

    Pre-post Edit: Apparently there's no Communist Party member in my riding. However it will be incredibly difficult to not pick the Con based on his last name alone(Yes I'm 8. What of it?)

    At least we actually have a chance (a couple pretty good!) to defeat the Conservatives here in Saskatoon now that we're not saddled with Urban-Rural split ridings. We've got shiny new Urban only and Rural only ridings in Saskatchewan now.

    I'm happy my vote will have a strong impact on getting rid of a Conservative. Saskatoon-University; NDP ftw!

    My MP used to be Dick Harris. His signs suddenly read "Richard Harris" after a dick-drawing spree during the last election.

    I used to work with a guy named Harry Dick. Nice guy who totally owned his name. If people called him "Harold" he would correct them to Harry.

    It didn't work so well the last time the Liberals and NDP worked together to undermine a Conservative minority.

    Orange is our left-wing party, the New Democratic Party.

    As for chances of winning, the Conservatives have a decent chance to form a minority government, but not a majority government. They are facing stiff opposition from the Liberal party, who is ahead in some polls.

    What are the chances of Harper (or his party) winning again?

    Right now they're polling slightly below Justin Trudeau's Liberals, but the Liberals aren't polling at a majority either. The most likely outcome seems to be a minority Liberal win, followed by a minority Conservative win as the second most-likely outcome. Hard to put a percentage on the odds (at least to me who's not a political science major).

    the "meta" in the media is that the most likely outcome is a Liberal Minority, possibly a Liberal Majority.

    My opinion is that it is so close and that polls have been so often wrong in the last few years that anything in the range of con minority, con majority, liberal minority or liberal majority are very possible.

    I personally don't believe an NDP government is possible, but who knows. Unless of course it is a Liberal-NDP coalition which is also a thing that could actually happen.

    edit: as far as Harper winning in his own riding (which is a question you might be asking??) he has about a 99.999% chance of winning there. If he didn't I would find it extremely hilarious

    Australia had the same Prime Minister for 11 years. When he was finally booted he was booted HARD. He lost his own seat during the election, and it was the first time the other party had won that seat in 30 years.

    Well, if Harper loses (or possibly even if he gets a minority, thus losing the majority he had), he'll probably be out as leader anyway, even if he wins his riding.

    Canada had something like that in 1993. The Progressive Conservatives (a very different party from the current Conservative Party) were the incumbents, and had basically managed to alienate every single part of the country. They were reduced from 156 seats to 2, with their leader losing her seat.

    well, the progressive conservatives (who were more center right) merged with the reform party (who were fringe right).

    the were the Conservative Reform Alliance Party for about a day before someone realized what the acronym was.

    Canadian Alliance existed for a number of years before the Progressive Conservatives agreed to merge. So there were a few years where the "Alliance" wasn't actually an alliance of anything.
    But yes, they really did call themselves CRAP for a brief time.
