Predictions

Post by Urbane »

Time to go out on a limb and tell us what you think the result will be on election night. Will a majority government be elected? If it turns out there isn't a majority government elected how do you think it will play out?

I think the party with the most votes will win and no matter who it is they will totally screw us.

Nuh uh. The party with the most seats will win. Which will start folk complaining about first past the post all over again.

And then, no matter who it is... The only question is the degree (some more totally than others), and the methodology.

I believe Scheer will win the most seats. Trudeau has proven over and over and over again that he cannot be trusted.

I'm wondering what will happen if the Conservatives win more seats than any other party but fall short of a majority. The Bloc leader has already said he won't work with any party but will only vote for things that benefit Quebec. But what about the NDP and Greens? Will they work only with the Liberals?

Singh has said he won't work with Scheer and May has said she won't work with any party that favours the pipeline. So how will people react if the Conservatives win more seats than any other party but remain in opposition? If the Liberals are a fairly distant second will the Conservatives still by bypassed?

The incumbent will be asked to form government. Like what happened here in BC in 2017. It may not end up the same way though.......

Libs in a tight minority.

Libs 34 percent
Cons 32 percent
BPQ 10 percent
NDP 7 percent
PPC 6 percent
Other 11 percent

In my perfect world it would be all PPC. Save Canada. Turf Trudeau. ASAP


The 3 left wing parties should all unite. I think this would be good for the country. Paint all evil with the same brush. :D

I agree, Frisk. I'm voting PPC but I don't know how much of a showing they'll make during this election. But I just can't bring myself to vote for any of the others.

I wish there was a way to vote but also to let the Politicians know we are not happy with how they are doing their jobs.

They seem to ignore the fact that we are hiring them to work for us and the country!
So why do the always screw it up so badly?

Speaking of signs... have you noticed that in the last few days there are an increasing number of Red signs at NDP functions supporting NDP candidates?

Is that a sign? Or, did the print shops just run out of orange ink?

My prediction is the print shops didn't run out of orange ink.

Would that be an actual governing Conservative minority or one on paper? The BC Liberals won the 2017 provincial election with a minority government which lasted only a couple of months and might this not end up being a similar situation? Which party(ies) would be willing to work with the Conservatives?

Elizabeth May has ruled out working with any party wanting to complete the pipeline, the Bloc won't work with any party, and Singh won't work with the Conservatives. So how would a Conservative minority govern? And will Singh's announcement that he'd be interested in a coalition government with the Liberals help the NDP on election day? The Liberals? The Conservatives?

I’m not sure if this is a prediction or not, but evidently a record number of ballots have been cast in just the first two days of early voting. Isn’t that usually an indicator that we’re about to see a change in government ?
It seems like these days people only turn out in great numbers to vote when they’re angry with the government.
