COMMENTARY: Political pros will be watching to see if the Liberals lose any seats in Newfoundland, and if that is followed by seat losses in the other Atlantic provinces, writes Darrell Bricker. ElectionDay canadavotes2019 CanadaElection2019
The first results from Atlantic Canada might offer clues as to how the rest of election night will unfold, Darrell Bricker says.
Something similar applies to the NDP. In 2015, the NDP won 16 seats in Quebec with 25 per cent of the vote. Current polling has the party at less than half of this in voter support. Going into this election most analysts assumed the NDP would be lucky to hold on to any of their seats in Quebec. If they are to have a stronger than expected night, Quebec could be where it starts.
This brings us to Ontario, which has 121 seats, the lion’s share of the 338 seats being contested on Monday. Political pros will focus mostly on the 905, which is the belt of suburban seats circling the City of Toronto.
The 905 has no partisan loyalty. It goes with the winner. On Monday, if the 905 moves again in a block, there’s a possibility that either the Liberals or Conservatives could win a majority.
The City of Toronto, or the 416, is also worth watching. There are a few ridings with a history of switching back and forth between the Liberals and NDP. If the NDP is on the right side of the switches this time, it will be a difficult night for the Liberals.
In 2015, Justin Trudeau declared ‘Canada is back’— so where are we now?
This brings us to B.C. The election could all come down to what happens on the west coast this time. Along with Quebec, B.C. is the most competitive jurisdiction in the country with four parties seriously threatening to win seats.Read more: Globalnews.ca
Trudeau did a fantastic job repairing the devastating cuts from the conservatives and people understand that money had to be spent to reverse the hurtful cuts that hurt most. Economy grew and will continue. Liberals for all, conservatives for wealthy? Liberalism is done. Liberalism is dead. Liberalism is weird. SCHEER4THEWIN
