Isn't Dallas more liberal than Saskatoon?  I'm only guessing here, I know very little about Saskatoon.

I wouldn't say so. Dallas is in Texas after all (Austin notwithstanding).

Saskatoon as a whole is right of centre these days, but it and Regina are the most left wing parts of the province. Saskatchewan used to be very left wing, it was the first jurisdiction in North America with a socialist government.

Dallas like most big Texas cities is quite liberal.  Austin really isn't any different than Dallas.  Once you step out of the city of course things change, but that happens in Austin too.

Dallas certainly doesn't have the reputation that Austin does. Anyways, it's hard to compare both cities, but I am fairly certain Saskatoon would be more Democratic than Dallas County at least.

There are so many other reasons to support Saskatoon over Dallas, as well. Not everyone prefers warmer weather, you know. Especially on this forum.

Well, I think there are probably a few popular Tory incumbents that will hang on. The thing about these by-elections are, there are no incumbents.

Humber East may have been the best riding for the Tories in 2011, but I wouldn't call it a safe Tory seat. Obviously Marshall had some personal strength. But, every single poll went Liberal there in the federal election. I'm thinking a riding like Ferryland will be a little more impenetrable.

Humber East had the highest PC vote in the last election, so if that swing happened across the province, the Tories would be wiped out. It wouldn't be a Campbelling, it would be a McKennaning.

Thanks for repeating me, MaxQue, you must have me on ignore Wink

2-party PC to Lib swings in recent by-elections in Newfyland:

Carbonear-Harbour Grace (Nov 2013): 34.9%
Virginia Waters (Apr 2014): 25.7%
St. George's-Stephenville East (Aug 2014): 25.2%
Conception Bay South (Sept 2014): 32.1%
Trinity-Bay de Verde (Tonight): 37.2%
Humber East: (Tonight) 44.9%

Looks like it's getting worse for the Tories.

Liberals leading in both by-elections so far. Race to watch will be Humber East IMO.

Dallas.

^^^

and im guessing dallas has a better economy.

Not sure how the economy is in Dallas, but Saskatchewan is experiencing a boom right now, especially Saskatoon.

I've never been to Saskatchewan, let alone Saskatoon, but I think my answer here is obvious.

Waterloo, Ontario, not the (somewhat smaller) Waterloo, Iowa.
WATFOR did you have to clear that up?

Canadaland was talking about Waterloo, Ontario. Perhaps it's a coincidence that Angus brought up the other Waterloo, if so I apologize.

Cosby's not so much a racist, as an elitist. But, his obvious downfall is that he's a rapist. Anyone not voting HP is basically condoning rape.

Jesus, where are you?

It was damn cold this morning here (10F) with wind gusts in my face at 30m/h, but I still biked to work!
Near Waterloo as usual, that day was just a special one. I actually tried biking that day. LOL what a fail that was. Tomorrow isn't much warmer. Not as much snow expected though, may try biking again if the roads are clear.

Edit: You from northern Ontario Hatman? It's been one of those weird weeks where we're colder than places 1000 miles north of here.

You're probably confusing me with Holmes; I'm in Ottawa.

The roads have been pretty good here, though I did fall on my bike yesterday on an icy sidestreet. I made it through the polar vortex last year on my bike, I'll be able to do it again this year.

This will be a big test Horwath. If we lose Sudbury, then perhaps she might consider resigning.

The whole Saint John East fiasco shows us that voters are willing to punish the party of the candidate who quit too early.

I eagerly await the promised byelection in Ahuntsic

They made a correction, she's not joining the caucus.

Interesting that the NDP is "trying" in a riding they finished 3rd in. Fool's gold for sure.

The Liberals will win both ridings, of course. There's been so many by-elections in Newfoundland recently, and the Liberals have won all of them (most of them gains as well). Plus, they've had a lot of floor crossings. If the last election was anything resembling a close one, the Tories would have a minority by now.

The big question is, which ridings will the Liberals not win in the general? I'm guessing Lorraine Michaels is safe, and Paul Davis will probably win his seat.
