  1. Hello all, I am back! I promised a 2019 Alberta election scenario I think like last year but right when I was about to release it the official version came out and I forgot to keep up with the forum since then. I've spent time since then learning more about the 2015 engine and putting some old scenarios together. I am committed to following through this time so I hope to give out my email possibly so people can harass me for scenarios. So far I am focusing on scenarios from the 1990's - Ontario 1990, 1995 and Saskatchewan 1995, 1999 I have rough drafts for. The only thing I lack in is making maps, so my scenarios have slightly anachronistic maps with regional divisions based on current ridings. If anyone could help in that department a long with general feedback, it would be much appreciated. With some help I can begin dumping the finished scenarios very quickly. I can send people the Ontario scenario's I have, my Sask scenarios need more work, and I am starting up on Manitoba '88 and '90 soon. Is there a new engine for Canada 2019? I haven't looked into it too much, but adjusting to a newer engine wouldn't be too difficult I imagine.

    The rough draft is finished, anyone want to test it out and help me with the finishing touches?

  4. This would be an excellent scenario. You would want to put an inherent weakness in the Liberal campaign, and a lot of emphasis on the attacks between Wildrose and PC's. More issues would be: Housing U.S. Relations Equalization Payments Social issues like Abortion could be useful for the Wildrose as well.
  5. It's a pretty good scenario overall. I find that the other players aren't given enough events/or they don't really do anything, and the amount of time in the campaign is a little long, so it's a little too easy, even on hard. Other then that I would recommend updating the poll numbers, adding some the new pictures and descriptions for the players.
  6. I was wondering who you had for each parties campaign crusaders. For Liberal you should try to include Sheila Copps, Dalton McGuinty, Ralph Goodale, and maybe Stephane Dion. NDP could be Olivia Chow, Darrel Dexter, Adrian Dix, Ed Broadbent, and Nycole Turmel. Bloc should include Pauline Marois and Gilles Duceppe. There really should be no change here. Likewise, Greens could be exactly the same as in previous elections and the Conservatives are really at your discretion since there is a large group to choose from.

    The NDP's slipping polls in Quebec could be their blessing, because the more their support becomes unsteady in important regions, the more party members will be compelled to vote for Mulcair. Once there is a major voice of opposition, there is a wealth of issues and scandals for the NDP to exploit such as Attawapiskat, the CWB, health care accord in 2014, the Long Gun Registry, etc. That being said, knowing Harper and his campaign style, he could easily exploit Mulcair's somewhat extreme Quebec-centric views, such as his early policy of eliminating English language traffic signs in the province. That could become a huge problem for him from anglophone voters. Again, theres another 4 years for Harper to either demonize himself to the voters or establish himself as a competent leader, and 2 more (or 3) leadership conventions along the way.

    It all lies with the leadership convention in March. Polls right now are painful for the NDP in Quebec, but with closer analysis you could easily see that the Liberals are still slipping to the NDP in the Western Provinces, as well as in the Atlantic ones. The only thing cementing the Liberals to a 20-25% range in national polls is their current wave of popularity in Ontario. That being said, the more time without a leader, they slower the momentum gets. If they pick a strong leader and she/he jumps headfirst into opposition they could easily grab back that "Government in waiting" title, and with years to establish themselves, coinciding with the impending provincial win in BC, they could clean up nicely. The Bloc are facing rapid obsolescence and Harper will probably resign by the end of this term, but the party could face a backlash similar to what the PCs got in the 90's. So I'm ultimately going with NDP minority, aided of course by third party Liberals.

  10. Scratch Brian Topp for Toronto-Danforth by the way, Craig Scott will most likely be running as Topp will run in Québec. Whoever is placing the incumbents in might want to place Topp in a non-NDP Montréal riding(there are a few) like Westmount—Ville-Marie, or more profoundly, Ahuntsic.

  12. I will be the first to let you know that I am terrible at editing and won't be able to.
  13. Except for those high profile MP's who lost their seats, such as Michael Ignatieff, for obvious reasons.
  14. I think it would be simple enough to just basically reuse every candidate from this year's election in most of the ridings, but switch the incumbents around to those who were elected, minus Toronto-Danforth, were you can substitute Topp for Layton.
