Just out of interest lets share our ridings, MPs, and the party the MP comes from.

It would be nice to if you linked in the Wiki page for the riding name and MP.

Riding: Brandon-Souris

Region:

MP: Mervin C. Tweed (Goes By: Merv Tweed) - Conservative Party of Canada - 2004-Present

Election Results from '04 and '06:

Results for '04 Election:

Conservative - 18,209 - 51.72%
Liberal - 8,522 - 24.20%
NDP - 6,740 - 19.14%
Green - 1,264 - 3.59%
Christian Heritage - 351 - 0.99%
Communist - 118 - 0.33%

Results for '06 Election:

Conservative - 20,247 - 54.40%
NDP - 7,528 - 20.20%
Liberal - 6,696 - 18.00%
Green - 1,707 - 4.60%
Independent - 611 - 1.60%
Christian Heritage - 290 - 0.80%
Communist - 120 - 0.30%

As you can see my riding is a very big Tory region. 50% + always vote Conservative.

Biggest run for their money in this riding was the Reform/Canadian Alliance

We have been Progressive Conservative/Conservative since the foundation of the riding in '53 except in '93 where we went Liberal. But in '93 the Reform was 1000 off from taking us.

So I am happy to be in a riding with many like-minded people like myself and to be represented by my party! :D

Lets share!

Results for '06 Election

Mauril Bélanger in Ottawa-Vanier

Canadian federal election, 2006
Party Candidate Votes % ±%
Liberal Mauril Bélanger 23,567 42.31 -6.86
Conservative Paul Benoit 15,970 28.67 +4.48
New Democrat Ric Dagenais 12,145 21.81 +3.27
Green Raphaël Thierrin 3,675 6.60 -0.27
Progressive James C. Parsons 221 0.4 -
Marxist-Leninist Alexandre Lageais 117 0.2 -0.29
Total 55,695 100.00%

Lefty hot-bed... a Liberal stronghold (since it became a riding in 1935).

Last year was a good run. I helped out a bit, did some door-to-door with Paul Benoit (great experience). It can be aggravating living in such a hot-bed of socialism... but its kind of fun being so different

No cool graphic available for mine, unfortunately.

Myron Thompson in Wild Rose (AB)

Federal Election, 2006
Party Candidate Votes % +/-
CPC Myron Thompson 39,487 72.16% +1.57%
Green Sean Maw 5,929 10.84% +2.58%
Liberal Judy Stewart 5,331 9.74% -2.90%
NDP Shannon Nelles 3,972 7.26% -1.22%

Voter Turnout: 66.69%

The Wild Rose riding extends roughly from Red Deer south to the TransCanada, and the QEII west to the BC border. It includes Airdrie, Olds, Didsbury, Cochrane, Sundre, Canmore, Banff, and the MDs of Rockyview and Bighorn, as well as the Stoney First Nation Indian Reserve.

The riding has always elected PC/Reform/Alliance/CPC since its creation. We frequently hold the distinction of having the largest margin of victory in the country, and in 2006, we were (AFAIK) the only riding in which the Green Party placed second (distantly).

New Westminster - Coquitlam

Dawn Black, NDP

<u>2006</u>
NDP 38%
CPC 32%
LIB 23%

<u>2004</u>
CPC 33%
NDP 32%
LIB 27%

<u>2000</u>
Alliance 44%
LIB 31%
NDP 15%

This riding has gone through a couple of redistributions over the past years. Paul Forseth held this riding (or at least the part that made up most of the new riding) from 1993-2006 for the Reform, Alliance, and Conservative parties. He benifited from a vote split in 2004 (and most other elections), but in 2006 the lefties went to the NDP tent when Dawn Black re-entered politics.

New Westminster - Coquitlam riding is a typical suburban "working class" area (with the exception of Queen's Park and a couple of other pockets). When the Reform Party hit the scene, it was an amazing feat because the NDP dominated this area since 1962 only losing it once to the Liberals in 1968. It will be a tough battle to take this one from the NDP. A big name candidate would be helpful, but I don't think they would get the favourable vote splits that Forseth got over the years.

Riding Souris-Moose Mountain (Saskatchewan)


MP: Ed Komarnicki - Conservative

2006 results
:

    Conservative Ed Komarnicki 19,282 62.81%
    Liberal Lonny McKague 5,681 18.50%
    New Democrat Michael Haukeness 4,284 13.95%
    Green Mathew Smith 1,448 4.71%


2004 results
:

    Conservative Ed Komarnicki 11,306 36.90%
    Independent Grant Devine 8,399 27.41%
    Liberal Lonny McKague 6,001 19.58%
    New Democrat Robert Stephen Stringer 4,202 13.71%
    Green Sigfredo Gonzalez 537 1.75%
    Christian Heritage Robert Thomas Jacobson 191 0.62%


Solidly Conservative/Reform since 1997; it's an upset if the Conservatives get less than 60% of the vote. "Independent" Grant Devine is the former Conservative Premier and tried for the party nomination in 2004. Didn't get it, ran as an independent, came in 2nd to Conservative Ed Komarnicki.

Just guessing (I'm not politically active and don't have any inside info), I suspect the Conservatives have lost a bit of support to the Liberals, but have more than made up for it in gains from the NDP who are in free fall in this province.

You're in lovely country, urbanmonk. The Moncton area is on my short-list of places to retire when I'm tired of fighting crime & evil.

Or, as I've heard a few members say, the twin evils of drunkenness and stupidity? :lol:

Yes we are very content here, this will always be our home I suspect!
For retirement I'd recommend the Sussex area, but hey isn't Vancouver like the Canadian paradise?
PS: drunkenness and stupidity abound here too.
