Yesterday was the Liberal nomination in the new riding of Burnaby South, BC. Banker Adam Pankratz defeated Ken Beck Lee to win the nod. The NDP have already nominated the incumbent from Burnaby-Douglas, Kennedy Stewart. Burnaby-Douglas is being divided into Burnaby North-Seymour and Burnaby South, and Stewart chose to run in the safer riding, as Burnaby North-Seymour is a notional Tory seat.

Tonight is the Liberal nomination in Yellowhead, AB where we just had a by-election. The Liberals will acclaim their by-election candidate, Ryan Heinz Maguhn tonight. Tory MP Jim Eglinsky gets to automatically be the Conservative candidate because he won the by-election. The Libertarians have also nominated a candidate, Cory Lystang.

The PCs won a lot of support last election from moderates who normally vote Liberal/NDP in an effort to stop Wild Rose. This flies in the face of those people. One could say they get what they deserve, as someone on the centre-left should never settle for a party on the right (I'm looking at you, John Tory voters).

I guess it's impossible to keep conservatives apart for very long. I imagine UKIP wont last very long in Britain, either.

Nirmala Naidoo wins the Liberal nomination in Calgary Rocky Ridge.

Tonight is the Liberal nomination in Ajax, ON. Former Pickering-Ajax MP Mark Holland will be acclaimed. He lost to Tory Chris Alexander in 2011, and will face him again in 2015 in the re-drawn riding, as the Tories have already nominated the incumbent.

If there's one province that doesn't need to "unite the right" it's Alberta. This is most disappointing. Just when Alberta politics were about to get interesting.

Danielle Smith was a good leader for the party, I doubt they can find someone of similar qualities.

Actually, there have been a few provincial polls from forum in November.
http://poll.forumresearch.com/data/ON%20Horserace%20News%20Release%20(2014%2011%2029)%20Forum%20Research.pdf
37% OLP (-3% from last poll)
37% PC (+2%)
17% NDP (-2%)
7% Green
Not good news for the NDP, but take it with a grain of salt as this is province-wide, Forum underestimated the NDP in June, and we don't have any other pollsters to confirm. Nonetheless 308 has moved Subdury to "Likely Liberal" based on the liberal strength in the Forum polls, and maybe Thibeault's candidacy.

Remember that 308 is a terrible projector, especially with by-elections. Has he even got any of the Newfoundland by-elections correct?

Wow... I guess he figures he has a better chance of winning a by-election after this Liberal scandal than holding on to his seat in the federal election.

ETA: Holy f*** he switched parties???

Today is the Liberal nomination in Calgary Rocky Ridge, AB, a new suburban riding in the northwest corner of Calgary. CBC News Anchor Nirmala Naidoo has to be the favourite against Qamar Khan. The Conservatives will name their candidate at a further date, but have 5 candidates running so far in this safe Tory corner of the city.

Question for Hatman and RogueBeaver or anyone else who wishes to comment

How many of the current crop of NDP Members of Parliament from Quebec will survive the next election in your estimation?

Roughly 30 are safe due to their only relevant opposition (the Bloc Quebecois) being in even worse shape than they are. These are mostly in rural Quebec and parts of Montreal.

10ish are lost causes. These are mostly in Montreal and will be picked up by the Liberals.

The remaining ridings will depend on vote splits. The Liberals will win a few ridings in rural Quebec, the Tories might be able to snag a seat or two around Quebec City, but the NDP should hold a few of these.

I expect the Bloc Quebecois & Forces et Democratie to not win any seats.


They should hold most of their seats in the 450 area code (Montreal suburbs) as well. Outside of Quebec, the NDP is looking at mid 2000s level support, and may only win 20 or so seats.

Perhaps the media will change the rules to exclude parties that do no run a full slate. I think Elizabeth May has earned her right to be in the debate at this point.

Good news for the NDP, because they need a scandal if they're going to hold the seat. Even better news for Andrea Horwath, because a loss would be a huge blow for her leadership.

Yes; I live almost exactly 1 mile NE of the hospital I was born in.

Administrator Steve MacKinnon was chosen by the Liberals to run in Gatineau. He was their candidate in 2011.

Karley Scott, a Metis lawyer won the Liberal nomination in Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola.

Today: The NDP will acclaim their candidate in Gatineau, Fancoise Boivin, who is the incumbent.  She will take on Mackinnon in what could likely be an NDP-Liberal race.
