Are these the soft cookies that taste like an orgasm? If so, then good, of course. Even better if they're chocolate.

Bushie will quit first, just like he did with Allison. And then his boss will say that he wasn't going to fire him at all.

I only go to Walmart (and very rarely at that) because it is literally the closest grocery store (13 minute walk). I don't mind the extra walk (19 minutes in total) and the extra expense to shop at the next closest Grocery, Farm Boy.

You be the judge:


English is a lot stronger than i remember, of course the map I saw was either from years ago or a ancestry map. Anyways yeah there is a definite correlation but also other things going on.

Note that there is next to no one living in central New Brunswick.

308 fails again. 10 ridings wrong. (I got 9, 5 of which were in Fredericton)

I spent very little time on my model, yet I still did better than him. When will he fix his s[inks]y model?

The NDP strategy in these types of provinces has always been to focus on one or two seats. It's all you can do with a small budget. Get your foot in the door first, build the party to win government in the future. It worked in Nova Scotia.

Also, is anyone else finding the new look of CBC's "New Brunswick votes" less user-friendly than the old clickable maps they used to have?

Yes, I tried using it. It's terrible.
14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: New Brunswick: September 22, 2014 on: September 22, 2014, 08:43:29 pm
I'm worried about the municipal elections in Ontario. Some municipalities will be using internet and telephone voting. Horrible!

I knew it...

Oh God, that's terrible. At least there's a paper trail.

The NDP needs someone to be leader for more than one election, so they can spend a few cycles building the party. Right now it's just a revolving door. They haven't had a leader stick around in over a decade.

Machines may be faster in general, but if humans were counting, we would know who had won by now, due to the machine delays.

25-23 Libs now.

I hope it's tied and the Greens hold the balance of power and they force the government to implement proportional representation.

Is this not the largest vote share for NDP ever in NB ?

Yes. This is why Cardy should've stayed.

21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: New Brunswick: September 22, 2014 on: September 22, 2014, 07:53:26 pm
Cardy is resigning. Another dumb decision on his part. Now who is going to lead the party?
22  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: New Brunswick: September 22, 2014 on: September 22, 2014, 07:48:09 pm
That stupid sun logo didn't help either. What happened to the ship logo they used to have?

Interestingly though, this is the best NDP showing ever in popular vote.
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: New Brunswick: September 22, 2014 on: September 22, 2014, 07:46:33 pm
Bad news for the NDP. Sad



Well, they did a terrible centrist and vague campaign, targeting nowhere. They must learn lessons the hard way.

No, it was downfall-gate Wink

Cardy should have run in Fredericton South. Dumbest decision he made. What's so progressive about his riding?

It's urban, suburban and rural, so it's representative of the province! It's the reason he gave. Dumb targeting, as usual.

Yup. One problem with the NDP these days is totally ignoring electoral geography. The Greens have obviously started to pick up on this (ever since Elizabeth May's disastrous run in Central Nova).
