2021 – Nova Scotia

The 2021 Nova Scotia general election is to be held on August 17, 2021, to elect members to the 64th General Assembly of Nova Scotia. 2021 sees 4 new ridings up for election and currently the Liberals are polling well and look set to be returned to government but what will happen during the campaign?

The campaign polling starts of with a Liberal lead and has a few events to shift the polls to the PCs which seems to lead to a much closer campaign at the end.

1959 – Alberta

The 1959 Alberta general election is to be held on June 18, 1959, to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. Ernest C. Manning, in his fifth election as party leader and provincial premier hopes to lead the Social Credit Party to its seventh consecutive term in government. Previous to this election, the Social Credit government had done away with the Instant-runoff voting system in use in the rural constituencies, and the Single Transferable Vote system in Edmonton and Calgary, both of which had been in place since 1924. This brings Alberta in line with the other provinces using the First past the post systems.

1963 – Alberta

The 1963 Alberta general election is being held on June 17, 1963, to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. The Social Credit Party, led by Ernest C. Manning is seeking its eighth consecutive term in government. Some Social Credit supporters are so confident of their party’s chances that they talk of winning “63 in ’63”, i.e., all 63 seats in the legislature in the 1963 election. Can opposition parties make an impact in this election and win seats?

1967 – Alberta v.2

Ernest Manning aims to lead his Social Credit party into an unprecedented ninth consecutive term in government. Can the Liberals, NDP, and transformed PCs – led by the charismatic Peter Lougheed – succeed in pushing Social Credit into minority status, or will they once again be crushed by the Social Credit machine which has dominated Alberta since 1935?

v.2 – Very small update with some amended surrogate stats/descriptions.
