what year will this election be set?

2010. I have started the basic outlines of the scenarios but I really cannot get rolling until I have a Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition, Leaders of all of the parties (except Libertarian), Premiers, MPs, and Senators. Once I have more candidates I will be able to move faster.

by the way, the prime minister can be a member of either the conservatives or the liberals. the seat totals from the 2005 election was:

Conservative 111

Liberal 111

NDP 47

Bloc 29

Independent 8

Green 1

Libertarian 1

Perhaps there should be a new charismatic NDP leader (Retired hockey star?) who decides to break a coalition with the liberals with the confidence that the party could become the official opposition.

thats fine. give me the info and i'll make him a candidate.

Updates:

I have finished the ridings in:

  • Prince Edward Island
  • Nunavut
  • Northwest Territories
  • Yukon

I still need more party leaders. I also need a Prime Minister and leader of the Opposition. Premiers as endorsers would be good too.

I am still accepting candidates from everyone, so please submit. I would like to finish this scenario asap but it will only be as good as the help I receive.

Ok, in terms of leaders, here is what I still need:

Conservative (I have some candidates, but no leader)

Bloc Quebecois

Independent

Marijuana

Communist

Animal Alliance

People's Political Power

Please note that I would gladly accept candidates from parties not listed. I could definitely use more Liberals, Conservatives, and NDP members. I am also still looking for some Premiers. This scenario will likely be the basis for many more. We might see some leadership elections with these candidates...
