    Yes, it's a lot easier to make promises when nobody holds you accountable for failure.

    Final EKOS preview (Frank Graves, EKOS president):



    Surprisingly bullish for the Liberals. He's had some comments earlier that the expected result feeds back into the vote choices, providing a narrow-ish range for the Liberals who pick up votes from skittish third-party supports when they're doing poorly and shed them when they're doing well.

    Philpott or Raybould? They’re running as Independents.

    Raybould, I think - not guaranteed but she's ahead according to the tea leaves. Philpott is polling in third place in her riding.

    Strong liberal minority, but not majority (so they have to play ball with further left parties), would basically be best-case scenario, right?

    Yeah, in the world of ‘things that might actually happen’, a Liberal minority that has to work with the NDP is probably the best case scenario.

    Worst case is Conservative majority, followed by Conservative minority, followed by Liberal minority that for some reason works with the CPC, followed by Liberal majority.

    I think #3 there would be more of the traditional minority government - "we 'won', here's our budget, if you vote it down we're doing this all over again."

    I'm running on the assumption that Liberal minority = Conservative PM within 18 months and would reorder the 'best case' list accordingly.

    According to 338, my riding will likely stick with the NDP incumbent. However, if I lived like three blocks over, I would be in a riding that seems much more split between another NDP incumbent and the Liberal candidate. Would kind of been neater to live there.....

    yea, Calgary Confederation here, will vote Liberal even though I havent seen hide nor hair of the Liberal Candidate, but they are still polling waaay higher than the NDP (which is a shame cause the guy was out door knocking)

    My riding looks to be staying Liberal so I feel safe voting NDP. Cons basically never have a chance and the fact that a PPC candidate is even running is hilarious.

    Just went in voted. Kinda picked up the top clean shirt in my laundry basket and it was the 150 Canada Day shirt.....total coincidence, I swear.

    Weather was really nice for an October day.

    Well, I live in Trudeau's own riding, so that one is on lock no matter what.
    Also, can't actually vote so I'm kinda reliant on everyone else not to fuck this all up.
    No pressure.

    Someone in Canuckistan make a new thread and I'll lock this one so you have 100 new pages to complain about that the new government.

    Can't we wait until the end of the day/tomorrow? Then we can have a brand new thread with a brand new(-ish?) government? :)

    The election will no doubt cause a spike in posting and I'd rather get ahead of it than wake up and find you're on page 107 or something.

    That is something they should get shit for. A polling centre on election day is no place to advertise.

    SwashbucklerXX has not been online since June. Anyone got a funny OP and a passion for rotating joke titles?

    EDIT: If it helps.
