First off the mark. If you check out interrnational elections, I have the first riding done poll by poll, Ottawa South, one of the 34 Liberals seats...

Great map! Are the two small towns to the east Oil Springs and Petrolia?

I have seen it as part of a Toronto west, centre and east maps but not as a whole.

But before that, accept my thanks and congratulations for an incredible mapping job!

Is it possible to show iles de la madeleine?

Harper attended Richview Collegiate which suggests that Etobicoke Centre was his riding and not Lakeshore.

I have posted more maps showing federal election results from the 1940s-1950s. Of particular interest are three returns for Trinity riding which was a centre in Canada for the Labour Progressive Party (aka Communist Party), especially its working class Jewish voters. When an LPP candidate was not offered in neighbouring Spadina riding in 1949, LPP voters there swung massively to the Liberals rather than to either the Conservatives or more left-leaning CCF.

Can't be totally sure but in both by-election and 2007 general, the NDP candidate ran very well in the old borough of york polls while the Liberals ran best in North York...the polls of which tend to be very Italian and mostly middle-class. So I am basically agreeing with you!

York South is a riding of the same name, but highly differing demographics nowadays. In fact, in 2007 the Liberals had to take York South back, having lost it in a by-election. In the 1970s, the old anglo-saxon working class neighbourhoods of York Borough gave way to waves of Italian and then some Portuguese immigrants. Many blacks also moved in. All combined to move the riding from an NDP to a (mostly) Liberal stronghold.

In 1984 and 1988, my old roommate in Toronto, Steve Krashinsky, ran for the NDP...came close in 1984 but got badly beaten in 1988 when the ethnic solitary of the voters firmed up behind the Liberals.

It is indeed a neighbourhood that in provincial elections can move back and forth between NDP and Liberals, much like Parkdale-High Park to the south. But federally, it is pretty safe for the Liberals.

Under "election maps" in the gallery, I have posted several maps of York South riding from 1953 to 1972. This shows the progression of the riding from CCF, (precursor to the NDP) to strongly Conservative in Diefenbaker's great 1958 landslide, to NDP under David Lewis.

You will find that the rural poll vote displays a tendancy for German/Catholic polls to vote Liberal, near the village of Mildmay in Bruce . Normanby township (and Hanover town), on the other hand, are German Lutheran and quite Conservative in County Grey.

An excellent question. it is located in the riding of Kootenay-Columbia. The settlement doesn't appear to be "organized" and must be part of another larger town or district. In any event, the OVR has no listing for Bountiful so it must be called something else. It is SE of Creston and very close to the USA border.

I do know that there are more substantial Mormon concentrations in Southern Alberta. Both Raymond and Cardston are small towns that are heavily Mormon and also overwhelmingly Conservative.

My brother's family lived there many years. The north and west are more middle class while the east is more working class...Just as the polls suggest. Now what is rather interesting is that the central core has some very highbrow polls which went Liberal (sadly one where my brother lived).

There is always Toronto. Can the completed Toronto maps be used as part of a larger map?

That takes me back to my home from 1954-1960.

The SE rural polls are the Six Nations Reserve but have a very poor turnout generally.

Up to the 1970s much of Brantford was industrial working class with a much smaller middle class element and literally two high income polls. The Conservative base was in the (few) suburban polls, rural areas and Paris while the NDP/Liberals dominated in the rest of the city. With northern and SW Brantford larger and with rural reas very strongly Conservative, there has been a shift towards the party.

For those who may have ever lived in Toronto, do look at the riding of Toronto Centre where you will see a few green-coloured polls (including Toronto Island). These were polls won by Independent candidate John Sewell. He was considered a radical, anti-development alterman who was also mayor for one term. In 1999, he was a strong third and aside from the island, ran well in ultra wealthy Rosedale.

This is a map of toronto that I just completed for the 1999 provincial election. Harris's second majority. It was taken from our second floor while I placed it on our back deck.

I have also uploaded it to images section but am having my usual difficulties pasting it here.

Great maps...and very interesting. Quite a diverse city.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Canadian federal polling division files on: August 18, 2009, 06:06:17 am
I have been beavering away at Toronto 1999 (provincial). I have completed two of five panels...the two largest ones.

The one you spotted was 5 NDP votes, 5 Liberal and 1 PC...
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Canadian federal polling division files on: August 10, 2009, 05:21:11 pm
The Cumberland polls do trend more PC than the rest of the riding but all in all, the riding is much safer Liberal territory provincially than federally.
22  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Canadian federal polling division files on: August 10, 2009, 08:26:20 am
Hey everyone - I finally am able to post maps and celebrated the event by posting a collection of 2007 provincial election maps. These are all hand-done and will look different than the computer generated maps that you have all seen so far...
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Canadian federal polling division files on: August 10, 2009, 07:59:58 am
SoFA EarlAW...Are you able to make 2006 maps as easily as 2008? That would form an incredible basis for comparison...
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Canadian federal polling division files on: August 10, 2009, 07:58:04 am
In 2008, the Conservatives came mighty close to taking Welland. Their rural strength is obvious but also interesting is a breakthrough in the west side of Welland which tends to be more middle class.

Thorold is an old industrial town which in the period before the 1930s was staunchly Conservative.

Fantastic map and most interesting election result. This riding went far greater to the Conservatives when its substantial Jewish population swung dramatically to vote for Peter Kent. Many polls were nearly 80% for Kent while the other substantial group, the Italian community, remained quite loyal to the Liberals.
