BLOCQUENDP


1984
The campaign goes better for the NDP and even the Liberals due to a mis-step by Mulroney in the last week, and an NDP focus on Quebec. The NDP is able to win 2 seats in Quebec for the first time.





200
43
38



1988
The campaign goes as we know it in reality, except in Quebec, where the NDP is able to grow. Due to Mulroney's 1984 mis-step, Bouchard never joins the Tories.



162
81
52




PRE 1993
The Bloc is a flop. The NDP MP for Laurier resigns in 1990 and the new Bloc tries to win the riding, but their candidate, Duceppe, loses to an NDPer who commits to pro-Quebec blah blah. This is because the previous NDP leadership race inn 1989 was very 'bloody' as the Quebec vs West battle nearly splits the party, and Quebec wins the battle by electing Bob Rae as leader.

As the 1993 election approaches, the NDP is down all across English Canada, due to the unpopularity of Grier's Ontario NDP government, which is seen as a failure, even within NDP circles. With Rae more than willing to play along and with the NDP gaining strong candidates for the coming election in Quebec, it will be an interesting election night for sure. The Bloc Quebecois continues to outpoll both the Liberals and the Tories in Quebec, but the NDP is ahead of all of them as the election draws to a close.

With all the focus on the NDP and Quebec, the Tories were able to win seats





Rae was narrowly re-elected in his own riding

Then Quebec results came in...

Bloc Leader, Jean Lapierre was re-elected, as were the other leaders save the Prime Minister. Jean Chretien was unable to win back his seat in Saint Maurice, and had to settle for Ottawa—Vanier in a by-election.

Lapierre moved the Bloc towards the centre, trying to be less of a separatist party and more of a pro-quebec party; this quickly ran him into trouble with some of his MPs
Michel Gauthier, from Roberval, became leader of this faction, supported by Antoine Dubé, and Gérard Asselin.
Supporting Lapierre were Stéphane Bergeron, Benoît Sauvageau, René Laurin, and André Caron.

The NDP had managed to get a few strong people elected in Quebec, including Paul Mercier, Stéphan Tremblay, and Réal Ménard. With only 5 MP's from outside Quebec, the new Quebec caucus of the NDP played a very strong role.


Many in the English media were quite pleased that the NDP destroyed the Bloc threat, however, upon seeing the Bloc take a pro-Quebec stand in the commons, and the NDP generally ending up taking very similar stances, lead to some calling the NDP the "Bloc QueNDP" and arguments that the NDP is "just as bad as the Bloc"

Rae, seen as having lost his power, resigned as NDP leader in 1995 and caused a leadership election. This was won by Jack Layton. Layton, who had lived in Toronto for some time, has a long history of family in Quebec and was seen as a good choice by the Quebec Caucus.

Layton's inability to win Rae's old Toronto riding in a by-election was an embarrassment for the NDP, however Val Udvarhely stood aside to allow Layton to be elected in a by-election in Lachine, his Father's old riding. By the time of the 1997 election it looked as though the NDP would not retain official opposition status...

For this story to work, Harper has to decide not to run for CA leadership. The result is Brison gets the 3 votes he needs and wins the PC leadership. The above is the 2004 election. Note the CA logo is real, I took it from the Elections Canada website in the 2 months between when they updated the logo and when they dissolved their party. Any other "alternate" logos, to come, are not real.

2006 election...

The Tories pick up momentum in Quebec, but without Harper to scare people off, they gain a lot of seats.

Day gets tossed as Alliance leader, and the Alliance starts to move back to a more populist stance, as well as social conservatism, but less fiscal conservatism.

Dion becomes Liberal leader...

Between this and the 2008 election, Dion gets replaced by Ignatieff, who takes a seat in 'toby North. The Alliance meanwhile continues to move in a more populist direction. The Bloc, loses it's traction with voters, especially after Mulcair wins a seat in a by-election.

Between the 2008 and 2011 elections, a LOT happened.

The Bloc collapsed.

The Canadian Alliance decided to support a "Back to Roots" campaign, and became Reform again. (Note the logo used is the REAL Reform logo prior to it's becoming the Alliance)

The Liberals voted to merge with the NDP, but it was bloody, far more bloody than the PC merger into the Alliance in our timeline. Many Liberal MP's decided to jump ship and join the Tories. The Greens decide to get in on the action and Elizabeth May gets nominated as a candidate for Canso. After Layton's tragic death, Rae takes over as leader of the Liberal Democrats in time for the November 2011 election, that Brison called due to the economic problems and political changed.
