As the Maritimes go, so goes the Nation...

In elections past, the Maritime provinces have been an excellent predictor early on during the returns as to how the Nation as a whole will go. It's an interesting phenomenon, one which I perfectly understand being a Maritimer myself.

You see, it's very simple: we are at the bottom of the totem pole, but that's a good thing. When you are at the bottom, you get all the information that flows from the top. So, really, Maritimers are the most well-informed of all Canadians! Therefore, when it comes to these kinds of decisions, we are the perfect "sample" or "predictor" for how the Nation thinks as a whole. Simplistic, I know, but I like it...

SOOOO, what does that mean? My prediction: Conservative minority come Monday. One of the 3 seats in question for New Brunswick will flip to the Conservatives, the others will stay Liberal. Which seat will flip? My first choice would be Tobique-Mactaquac, second choice is Saint John. However, on election night, if both of these "questionable" seats go Conservative along with Miramichi, then we are in big trouble, as this scenario would indicate that a Conservative majority is all but certain... God help us all, in THAT scenario.

If you are interested inlooking at the poll numbers for the Maritimes a little more closely, go to DemocraticSpace.com.

Yahoo from Calgary! I cannot wait for the Auditor General to get access to those Canada Post, Canadian Mint, HRDC, and the 9 billion dollar trust fund books that have been off limits for her.

It is my feeling, that there is a ton more scandals just waiting for us to learn about. yahoo!

Wow, good call, Emmajoe. :) You hit the nail right on the head, and for pretty much the right reasons, too.
