2014 – Ontario

The 2014 Ontario general election is to be held on June 12, 2014, to elect the members of the 41st Parliament of Ontario. The Liberal Party hopes to move from a minority to majority government. This would be the Liberals’ fourth consecutive win since 2003 and an improvement from their performance in the 2011 election. The Progressive Conservatives and NDP will be hoping to change this. The election was called on May 2, 2014, by Lieutenant Governor David Onley, upon the recommendation of Wynne following the announcement that the NDP, whose support was critical to the survival of the Liberal’s minority government in the Legislative Assembly, would vote against the Liberals’ proposed budget.

2021 – Canada

The 2019 Canadian federal election resulted in the Liberals, led by incumbent Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, losing both their parliamentary majority and the popular vote but nevertheless winning the most seats and remaining in office as a minority government. On August 15, 2021, after a request from Prime Minister Trudeau, the governor general dissolved parliament and called an election for September 20. Trudeau’s Liberals are enjoying a poll lead but what will happen during the campaign?

I can’t think of anything else to add at the moment so for now the beta has become the full version.

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.
