A week or so ago, I thought I would try my hand at making a map and a scenario for PMI Canada, with the result being a scenario for Prince Edward Island’s 2015 general election, found below.
Any and all feedback anyone has to offer would be very helpful and very gratefully received – the issues are just the basic ones from the Canadian federal scenarios with those only relevant to the federal government removed and the only local endorsers I have are the two newspapers from Charlottetown and Summerside so any help there would be great!
PEI – 2015
Change is in the air. Ontarians have grown tired of the Liberals after 15 years in office. The Tories have just finished a tumultuous leadership race to replace the disgraced former leader, Patrick Brown. Can they maintain their 20 point lead or will Kathleen Wynne defy the odds and win re-election? It is Andrea Horwathís third election as NDP leader. Can the New Democrats capitalise on the unpopularity of the Liberals and chaos in the Conservative Party or will they remain the third party? It is far from certain who will lead the next government and if it will be a minority or majority government.
During their term in office, the Liberals regularly polled above 50%. However, recent labour disputes with the NSTU has resulted in a slip in Liberal support. There are now talks about the possibility of Liberal minority or even a change in government. Can Stephen McNeil reverse these trends or will he be the leader of second one term government in recent history?
Nova Scotia- 2017
Four years after sweeping to power, the Dexter led NDP are fighting for their political lives. Public disenchantment with business-friendly subsidies, a broken no tax increase promise and an MLA expense scandal has made this election an up hill battle for the incumbent New Democrats.

With the US having closed the border due to fears of mad cow disease the cattle producers have had a disastorous Summer, the harvest has been mediocre and SPUDCO, a failed potato processing plant venture has cost $28 million in a province that’s already struggling economically. There’s a lack of education and 2/3 of the voters want a change. The province also faces its perennial problem of young people leaving and the lowest proportion of working age people in Canada.

“Do you agree that Quebec should become sovereign after having made a formal offer to Canada for a new economic and political partnership within the scope of the bill respecting the future of Quebec and of the agreement signed on June 12, 1995?” 15 years after the first sovereignty referendum failed the sovereigntists have tried again and so far haven’t done very well but now Lucien Bouchard takes over their campaign.
