whats interesting is none are in Quebec even though we've heard for years about how the liberals plan to target quebec ridings . of these 25 , 7 are ndp ridings and 18 are cpc ridings . mostly core conservative ridings that haven't voted liberal since 2000 or 2004 so been blue for a long time .

all these seats are either in Ontario or western Canada . some have never been liberal in recent memory and others were liberal from 93- 2004 before the conservative party merged and won back most of the rural Ontario ridings .


many of these seats would also be considered " long shots " for the liberals even under the best conditions , Michael Chong is very well liked in Wellington Halton Hills and very unlikely a liberal candidate could beat him there .

Banff Airdrie would be another long shot , a rural alberta riding ? considering the results of the alberta by elections it seems like a tough one .

This seems to be a show run entirely from head office, with no local riding association input.

This tendency towards top-down management rather than facilitating local organizations is one more way the oarty protects itself from the people.

The list seems to me to be a long-shot list.

This is a party that is replacing its grass-roots with TV buys and focus-group tested slogans and talking points. They babble on about 'diversity' and 'climate change' while their whole economic plan has been made obsolete by the tax and regulatory changes made in the USA.

Where do you think the Canadian people rank 'diversity' on their list of priorities?

If only ... but the Milk Cartel owns our leadership. Such a shame, the Conservatives could actually offer an alternative (for once) rather than the "me too" position of our current dweeb.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of these ridings didn't have much riding level infrastructure and nominations need to be handled by the mother ship.

However, its odd to fill these sorts of ridings now;
Usually you would do so a month out from an election.

its really tough to say , but according to there new rules these ridings had to meet certain requirements before they were allowed to search for a candidate . needed to have some money in the bank and some potential women candidates identified were some of the rules I can recall

but its hard to believe any of these ridings are top liberal targets , unless there strategy is not about gaining seats in quebec but rather trying to wipe out the opposition in Ontario instead ? much like we saw in the late 90's and 2000


of these 25 ridings I'm pretty sure the last time any of them voted liberal was 2006 election ( Huron Bruce and Algoma Manitoulin had long time liberal mp's until they lost or retired in 2008 ) so none of them are especially likely ridings for the liberals


of the 10 western Canada ridings only Victoria has been liberal in recent memory , when David Anderson was mp from 1993-2004 ? , of the other 9 its hard to believe any are top liberal targets , a victory even in 1 of those 9 ridings would be shocking to say the least

( no surprise , trudeau will run again in Papineau riding )


Trudeau formally announces he'll run again in 2019

The Canadian Press
Published Sunday, August 19, 2018 7:18PM EDT



MONTREAL - Justin Trudeau will run again in the 2019 federal election.

The Liberal leader formally announced his nomination at a party event today in his Montreal riding of Papineau.

The partisan crowd cheered as Trudeau reaffirmed his belief in what he called "positive politics," and took jabs at Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, whom he accused of exploiting fear and division.


The Liberal leader also promised to tackle a number of challenges that include protecting Canada's oceans, raising the standard of living for Indigenous Peoples and narrowing the gap between rich and poor.

Trudeau was first elected to represent Papineau in 2008, and was re-elected in 2011 and 2015.

The riding has been held by the Liberals for almost all of the last 50 years, with the exception of 2006 to 2008 when it was held by the Bloc Quebecois.

Allan Thompson makes bid to lead Liberals to Huron-Bruce victory


Published on: August 20, 2018 | Last Updated: August 20, 2018 1:00 PM EDT

Allan Thompson, standing in a wheat field on his family's former farm near Glammis.



Glammis-native Allan Thompson is once again throwing his hat in the ring compete in the 2019 federal election as Liberal candidate for Huron-Bruce.

Thompson launched his bid to be the Liberal candidate for Huron-Bruce in the 2019 federal election on Aug. 20, 2018, with a commitment to create opportunity and build the rural economy in the riding.

“Now, more than ever, I believe that Huron-Bruce needs a stronger voice in Ottawa, an ambitious, proactive and effective MP who will speak up forcefully for our rural communities and make sure that rural concerns are heard in the corridors of power,” Thompson said in a release.

The 54-year-old, was the federal Liberal candidate in Huron-Bruce in the 2015 election that brought Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government to power. During that campaign, he raised Liberal support in Huron-Bruce by more than 23 percentage points and with more than 23,000 votes, placing a close second to incumbent Conservative Ben Lobb.

“It’s time to build on the momentum from 2015. And it’s time to send a Liberal MP from Huron-Bruce to sit on the government benches in Ottawa,” he said.

Thompson identified working to create opportunity and build the rural economy in Huron-Bruce as a top priority and vowed he would be a voice for farmers and all those who live in the riding’s small towns and on its country roads.

He also said the needs of seniors, access to healthcare and the challenges posed by mental health issues and youth drug addiction in rural communities are particular concerns. And he wants to look for ways to make settling down in the region a viable option for those young people who are increasingly drawn away by schooling and job opportunities.

Thompson will formally launch his campaign to seek the federal Liberal nomination at a gathering of family and friends on Wednesday, Aug. 22, in downtown Goderich, where he has purchased a home and taken up residence.

A former political reporter for the Toronto Star newspaper, Thompson is on sabbatical from his position as a journalism professor at Ottawa’s Carleton University. He recently launched Market Street Strategies, a strategic communications firm based in Goderich. Born and raised on a farm just outside the village of Glammis in southern Bruce County, he went to school at Bruce Township Central Public and Walkerton District Secondary School and began his journalism career as a reporter with the Kincardine Independent and Teeswater News.

While committed to reaching out to potential supporters face-to-face, Thompson will also make extensive use of social media in his campaign to maximize his engagement with constituents.

The main vehicle will be his website allanthompson.ca but you can also follow his campaign at facebook.com/allanthompson2019, at twitter.com/electallant and at instagram.com/electallant .
He can be reached by email at allan@allanthompson.ca or by phone at 613-799-1791

Biography
Allan Thompson currently resides in Goderich but was born and raised in the village of Glammis in southern Bruce County. He also has a home in Ottawa.

His parents Ron and Eleanor Thompson ran a family farm, with beef cattle and pigs. He studied Journalism at Carleton University in Ottawa before completing his master’s degree in International Relations at the University of Kent at Canterbury, England. After working at the Kincardine Independent and the Teeswater News, he became a reporter for the Toronto Star newspaper. He worked as a political reporter in The Star’s Ottawa bureau from 1994 to 2003 when he took up a position as a professor in Carleton’s School of Journalism and Communication.

For 15 years he was also a columnist in the Saturday Star, writing about Canada’s immigration policy.

His work as a reporter with The Star gave Allan the opportunity to travel extensively across
Canada and around the world, enabling him also to spend a lot of time observing and analyzing federal politics, often travelling with Prime Minister Jean ChrŽtien. He spent time as a reporter in the tiny central African country of Rwanda after the 1994 genocide. As a professor at Carleton, he launched the Rwanda Initiative, a five-year partnership between Carleton’s journalism school and its counterpart in Rwanda. The project sent more than 175 Canadian volunteers to Rwanda as teachers, trainers and media interns and also brought Rwandan journalists to Canada to study.

Allan is the editor of the upcoming book Media and Mass Atrocity: the Rwanda Genocide and Beyond and also The Media and the Rwanda Genocide. He is the co-author of The Canadian Reporter, the standard journalism text for Canadian journalism students. He also founded Carleton’s Centre for Media and Transitional Societies, which sends about 20 journalism students to the developing world each year on summer internships. He is the President of the Gordon Sinclair Foundation, which annually gives a bursary to aspiring young journalists.

In 2010, Allan was presented with a Governor General’s medal by Michaelle Jean in recognition of his work promoting press freedom in Africa. In 2012, he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal by Gov. Gen. David Johnston for his work fostering journalism education and human rights in the developing world. He was nominated for the medal by Romeo Dallaire, commander of the ill-fated United Nations mission in Rwanda in 1994.

After the 2015 election, Allan was chosen to lead ProjectRURAL, a Liberal party task force that examined how the party could better serve rural ridings. He has also remained very active with the Huron-Bruce Federal Liberal Association, handling the riding association’s communications and organizing such key events as town halls on climate change, electoral reform and Canada’s international trade deals.

Thompson is an active member of the congregation at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Glammis. He has also served as a guest speaker for various community groups and organizations, with presentations on such topics as fake news and journalism ethics, the role of the media during the genocide in Rwanda and the influx of child migrants to Canada early in the last century, the so-called home children.

Allan is married to Roula El-Rifai, who works for the International Development Research Centre and their son Laith is heading into his second year at Carleton University in Ottawa

( it was revealed today the liberals plan to run a star candidate in Milton Ontario , the riding currently held by high profile conservative mp Lisa Raitt . she has yet to confirm to plans to run again but the cpc would like her to stay in politics is my belief )



Olympic kayak champion Adam van Koeverden to seek Liberal nomination in Milton


By Alex BallingallOttawa Bureau

Thu., Oct. 4, 2018


OTTAWA—Adam van Koeverden, Canada’s most decorated Olympic paddler and two-time national flag bearer at the Games, will make the splash into politics and seek the Liberal nomination for next year’s federal election in the GTA riding of Milton.

In an exclusive interview with the Star on Wednesday, van Koeverden said he relishes the steep challenge he would face in the suburban riding west of Toronto. The seat has been held since 2008 by Conservative MP Lisa Raitt, the high profile former Harper cabinet minister who is now the party’s deputy leader.


Olympic kayak champion Adam van Koeverden is planning to seek the Liberal nomination in Milton for next year's federal election. “I know that I can offer a brand of hard work that I don’t think Canadian politics has ever seen before,” van Koeverden said. (Ilich Mejia / Pomp and Circumstance)


But the political neophyte said he’s ready to take on the veteran — and win.

“I’m really, really excited about the amount of hard work this is going to be,” he said.

“I know that I can offer a brand of hard work that I don’t think Canadian politics has ever seen before.”


Van Koeverden became a household name in 2004, when he won a gold medal in the 500-metre kayak race at the Athens Olympics, Canada’s first for a paddler in two decades. He was also awarded the Lou Marsh Trophy that year, which recognizes the best Canadian athlete as decided by a panel of journalists. He went on to win world championship titles in 2007 and 2011, as well as silver medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

In more recent years, van Koeverden, now 36, has turned to advocacy work with organizations like Right to Play, which aims to teach children through educational games, and the David Suzuki Foundation.

He said he is passionate about sport, physical activity, the environment — values he sees meshing well with those of the governing Liberals under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Asked about Suzuki’s recent criticism of the Liberal government over its purchase of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline, van Koeverden said he believes Ottawa is doing a good striking a tough balance between economic and environmental priorities.

“I consider myself an environmentalist, but like most Canadians I still have a car and I need to heat my home,” he said. “Striking that balance is a really difficult thing to do, but I think this government is doing a really good job.”

Van Koeverden does not live in the riding he wants to represent in Parliament, but said he’s open to moving there. He grew up in nearby north Oakville, where he lived in community housing with his single mother and younger brother. He recalls memories of cross-country running to the Milton city sign, as well as skiing and mountain biking in the local hills.


He got his first taste of public organizing as a teenager, he said, when he sat on his neighbourhood’s junior board. “Growing up there I got a real sense of what working families need to make ends meet,” he said.

In terms of the issues he wants to champion for people in Milton, van Koeverden said affordable housing and transportation will likely be important. But he was quick to note he doesn’t want to presume the community’s priorities before hearing from local citizens.

“My first priority is getting to know the community of Milton a little bit more, and earning their trust in the nomination,” he said.

Raitt, the incumbent Conservative MP was re-elected in Milton for the third time in 2015, though she won the seat by a relatively narrow margin — 2,438 votes — as a wave of Liberal support crested across Toronto and much of the GTA.

“Do I believe that it’s winnable? My answer is that I wouldn’t enter a race that I didn’t think was winnable — unless it was like a charity 5k,” he said.

“This is not a charity 5k.”

Former Olympian aims to unseat Lisa Raitt in next election


CTVNews.ca Staff
Published Thursday, October 4, 2018 8:16AM EDT



After dominating in the sport of kayaking, a Canadian four-time Olympic medallist has set his sights on a different kind of race – federal politics.

Sprint kayaker Adam van Koeverden announced on CTV’s Your Morning Thursday, that he’ll be seeking the Federal Liberal nomination for the Ont. riding of Milton in the next election.

“I’m going to petition on the same Liberal values that I think most Canadians hold dear to their heart and I’m going to work really, really hard for that community. I think that’s what people want,” van Koeverden said on Thursday.


Adam Van Koeverden entering politics
Sprint kayaker Adam van Koeverden announced on CTV’s Your Morning that he’ll be seeking the Federal Liberal nomination for the Ont. riding of Milton in the next election.

The Milton electoral district encompasses a portion of the province that was previously part of the Halton electoral district and is currently held by experienced Conservative MP Lisa Raitt.

If van Koeverden wins the nomination, he’ll have his work cut out for him in trying to unseat the longtime politician. Raitt currently serves as the deputy leader for the federal Conservatives and was a prominent member of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet. She has been elected to Parliament three times.

When asked how he plans to take Raitt’s seat next year, van Koeverden replied that he’s going to win on hard work.

“I like a challenge. I relish a challenge,” he said. “I take that from my years as an Olympian, but also in everything that I do. I want it to be hard and worthwhile. I don’t enter races that are unwinnable.”

With frequent finger-pointing and name-calling, the sport of politics may not be as civilized as the world competitions the 36-year-old athlete is accustomed to, but van Koeverden said he’s already prepared for that aspect of governing.

“I will be a candidate that reduces the amount of mudslinging. I’m not interested in having those types of debates. I respect my competitors,” he said. “I think at the end of the day we all have the same goal. As kayakers we all wanted to win races, well we all want a better country as politicians.”

Van Koeverden said he plans to rely on his strong sense of community and his years of giving back to those in need through numerous charitable endeavours with organizations such as Right to Play, WaterAid, and the David Suzuki Foundation, to guide his candidacy.

he's not from the riding of Milton but he is from Oakville according to posts online , he does not currently live in the riding and his connection to it is weak . says he used to hike and bike thru trails in the area but no involvement politically


its a clear sign the liberals plan to target Lisa Raitt if she decides to run again , but will target the riding regardless it appears as its close to Toronto and a riding they came second in


it also has the feel of a "political hit job " , especially since the announcement was made literally the day after her high profile run in with trudeau and his ambulance chasers comment over the Tori Stafford case . ( something Van Koeverden , made no mention of or said how he'd of voted on the motion )


I respect Adam Van Koeverden for his service to the country and for participating in the Olympics but his entrance into partisan politics is a mistake . this is a political hit job , there is no way around stating the truth . he claims to " be a nice guy and wants to reduce mudslinging " but he's being given the task of doing the liberals dirty work , the job of removing a high profile female conservative politician from parliament


this is a political hit job , no doubt and for anyone to say otherwise is ignoring the obvious

She is targetted as she only one by a slim margin. In other words , she is ripe for the taking.

That is fair enough;
The Liberals need to potentially prepare for a scenario where the seats potentially lost in Atlantic Canada and out West are not Eclipse by the seats they will potentially add in Quebec.

Raitt won the new Milton riding in the face of motivated Liberal turnout by about 5%, the historic Halton riding was normally won by a much larger margin.

Its an interesting attempt in an interesting riding;
But I think the Liberals are more likely to lose seats in Halton than add them.

its obviously a hit job , yesterday she was feuding with the PM in the house of commons over the Tori Stafford case ( which seems to have the PM annoyed ) , literally less than 24 hours later the liberals suddenly have a star candidate for her riding who doesn't even live in the riding and never previously expressed any interest in being its mp

instead of making his announcement in the riding , with people who actually live in Milton . he gives an exclusive interview to the liberal friendly Toronto Star and appears on CTV morning to announce he's running . definitely not how your typical riding candidate announcement is made ( this whole thing was clearly orchestrated by people high up in the liberal party not people actually from Milton riding association )


true the riding only went cpc by 5 % in 2015 , but raitt's 2 other victories , were bigger margins . 11 % in 2008 and 28 % in 2011 . so the riding could in theory be won by a larger margin , depending on how the election goes .

I'm really not that familiar with Milton , never really been there . other than driving thru the 401 . but I know its grown a lot in recent years .


according to Wikipedia its population grew by 50 % from 2006 to 2011 and is now 110,000 people . at one point Milton was more like a small town and had only 30,000 people in 2001 . so the riding has changed drastically over the years


it also has a large visible minority population , around 45 % and growing . the south Asian population is around 22 % of the riding .


Adam Van Koeverden is actually an odd choice for a riding with such a large South Asian population , none of those people are going to know who he is . they likely weren't even in Canada when he won an Olympic medal and he isn't a known person in that community .


it would of made more sense for him to run in Oakville , even the open ndp riding of Hamilton Centre might of also been an option for him as its geographically close to where he lives . maybe he hikes thru the city of hamilton , that is apparently enough reason by his thinking to be its mp

A "hit job" is what the Democrats are doing to Judge Kavanaugh!
