He’d probably prefer if it was just a nude.

Everybody claims to take offence at stuff like that but nobody really cares.  It’s just an example of the vast gulf these days between public dialogue and personal priorities.

Also, very few Canadians that do not reside there for part of the year have ever experienced the US health care system, in any capacity, to have a sense of how they differ.

What about ER, St. Elsewhere, Chicago Hope, Greys Anatomy, General Hospital and Good Doctor and Scrubs?

Oh and House.

Liberal minority. Roughly same seat distribution.

And $600 million tax dollars wasted.

This is Collins worst nightmare. 

An early election, an electorate of whom some (most?) were eager to punish her for her very early departure from COV Council only months after taking her seat ... and worst of all, not even close to getting the MP's pension ... not one cent!

 

Folks I know in the COV have little or no sympathy for her, noting that she's in a predicament she quite literally created for herself.

 

I guess she could always push ahead as more polls come in ... but history tells us it only takes a few initial polls to sense which way the wind is blowing.

We shall see.

Collins’ Together Victoria past likely swayed as many voters as the early and costly departure from her council seat.

I guess the wind blew her back into Ottawa ... seemingly indicating that the COV remains solidly an NDP and Together Victoria kind of town.

Something to consider on the south Island is we may have a larger mail in ballot response than other jurisdictions, due to our older demographic.

I am not saying this election was a complete waste of time and tax dollars, I'll just let the results speak for themselves:

Something tells me Conservatives wouldn't be calling this election a waste if they had won, though.

They did? She currently has nearly double the number of votes as MacDonald.

Or do you mean swayed because Together Victoria was quite popular amongst a good portion of the population, and therefore that helped increase her vote?

 

Collins increased her share from 33% last time to 45% as of this post. The Green vote pretty much vanished. Liberals and Conservatives within a couple percentage points of last time, no large gains there. PPC @ 3%, don't believe there was a candidate last time.

Annamarie Paul came in 4th in her own riding with only 8% of the vote.

So she is the only sure bet to be gone next election.

I agree with you V. I have said many times that people underestimate the reach of TV at their own peril. Next year's municipal election isn't going to be the cake walk that some people think it is.

 

I guess Laurel will be able now to follow in the footsteps of many of her NDP predecessors in that she can get her six years, collect the lifetime pension and then return to UVIC to double dip and lecture us about inequality!

In response to another post, my point was any negativity stemming from her early departure from council would have been flanked by her allegiance to TV. But maybe not, I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see what the voter turnout was to see if there was an NDP voting contingent that didn’t vote in this election.

We were all wishing Laurel's TV past would come back to haunt her. But alas, most voters don't care or don't remember. There is what I call a zombie NDP vote...and man, it's solid.

because something would have changed. I wouldn't have called it a waste if Libeals got a majority (despite wanting Trudeau out) because again, change. Cons and NDP gaining a seat or two each from the Bloq and Green with Liberals at the exact same makes no real difference in the house so I think everyone should consider this election a waste regardless of what party you support.
