No; but ideally, there would be more people with college degrees in the first place.

Re: Trost. Even with his name listed in our poll, he still received less than 1% (worse than Ambrose who wasn't even listed).

No one knows who he is...
He'll gain eventually if no other socon runs. Patrick Brown started at 3% because nobody knew him, but gained quickly because no other socon ran.

I agree. Polls right now are just based on name recognition. Though I would argue name recognition counts more at the federal level, and Ontario PCs love picking the biggest no name. At least in the last 2 contests.

15 minute longer commute. THANKS, OBAMA.
7  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is 50% a Sufficient Threshold for Major Referenda? on: June 28, 2016, 08:07:28 pm
Yes, or maybe this:

what about a threshold of 50% of registered voters, actually?

Any other measure is arbitrary.

Referendums should be used sparingly though, but are appropriate on constitutional matters (coupled with legislative approval).

I've been getting pretty much the same scores for the last 14 years (if you also count the political compass), when I was in high school.

The only possible end to bipartisan politics in the UK is the end of FPTP. See : USA.

Or Canada. Oh, wait...

FPTP + Polarized political culture. Canada is not as polarized as the US or UK (regionalism is too strong).

Isn't saying you'd vote for someone the very definition of an endorsement? Not necessarily a ringing one necessarily, but...

Also keep in mind there is no reason for the parties to merge. Alberta has no business having one conservative party, for democracy's sake. Wildrose doesn't need to merge to win the next election. And what would probably happen is Wildrose becomes the mainstream right of centre party, and the Tories die a quiet death. No need for a merger.

Where would the P.C voters go then?

Pretty much what Njall said. Where did the SoCreds go when they folded?

I agree GPS is dumbing down people's navigation skills but Jesus Christ, this article is offensive.

Not a single Canadian team in the NHL playoffs? No. Not even close to the greatest year in sports, for that reason alone. Also, Las Vegas is getting an expansion franchise and not Quebec City. So, that too.

Miramichi NB mayor Gerry Cormier died of a heart attack yesterday.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/miramichi-gerry-cormier-dies-1.3643020

According to Elections NB, there are "municipal by-elections" scheduled for November 14, but don't say which ones. I'd imagine it's a planned date for any vacancies that should occur between the last elections and then, so I guess Miramichi will get a by-election then.

In the underwhelming battle of the backed progressives for the TDSB by-election in Toronto Centre-Rosedale, Chris Moise won.
Moise was backed by both NDP aligned Councillors Pam McConnell and Kristyn Wong-Tam and unions OSSTF and CUPE. On the other side Li Koo was the Liberal, supported by MPP Glen Murray, MP Chrystia Freeland, as a former TDSB chair and MPP Donna Cansfield.

Moise - 36%
Koo - 28%
http://election.toronto.ca/epr2014/eprDetail.do?114 - Turnout was low, as to be expected. 15% or so if I did the math right.

15% is very good for a school board by-election.

Since when is Parc-Extension a neighbourhood of 'dirty hippies'?

I was being facetious.

16 votes for the anti-wall candidate? Mount Royal residents love their wall. Gotta keep those Mexicans dirty hippies in Parc-Extension out! I suppose they're all backing Trump too?
