  1. The NDP won three more seats than the PC did, with 11% less of the popular vote. Ah...gotta love FPTP.
  2. The CHP won in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon against Chuck? I doubt it.
  3. Hmm...I already changed them, so it's hard to say... Just go through the ridings file and compare it to the candidate listing on CBC.ca
  4. I've found some remnant issues with the 2006 scenario even after the last update... - British Columbia Southern Interior is still listed as Southern Interior - Several of the minor parties candidates are still either wrong or not listed And a few things that are not really errors, but still kind of make me wonder... - It's pretty impossible for the Liberals to have the level of decline that they've actually had in this election. - The Bloc Quebecois are still way too powerful and manage to finish with 67-68 seats way too easily. - The NDP are way too strong and, without any sort of cheating at all, will finish with 30-40 seats. - The Green Party is way too strong and frequently get over 20% in ridings that they would never do so IRL...like I've had the Green Party beat Stockwell Day in Okanagan-Coquihalla and get over 20% in BC Southern Interior, Okanagan-Shuswap and Abbotsford.
  5. I think this is a little more realistic of what will likely happen. Provincial breakdown: Newfoundland & Labrador: L: 4 C: 2 NDP: 1 (L & C split the vote in Bonavista-Gander-Grand Falls-Windsor and the NDP won it by less than 1%) PEI: L: 4 C: 0 N: 1 (NDP won Charlottetown by a few votes) NS: L: 5 C: 3 N: 3 (Dartmouth-Cole Harbour back to the NDP ) NB: L: 6 C: 2 N: 2 (Madawska-Restigouche was the 2nd one) PQ: L: 10 C: 1 (Cannon won his seat, but Tories came within a percentage of winning 4 other seats) BQ: 64 (Ahuntsic, Jeanne-Le Ber, Outremont and Honore-Mercier all went Bloc) ON: L: 33 (Ignatieff won his seat, barely) C: 46 (Including 6 seats in Toronto) N: 27 MN: L: 2 C: 7 (Alcock lost his seat to the Tories) N: 4 (Schreyer barely won his seat) I: 1 (Bev won her seat by 1%) SK: L: 1 C: 11 N: 2 (Nystrom and Wiebe won their seats) AB: L: 1 (Anne managed to hold on by less than 1%) C: 27 BC: L: 4 C: 22 (Tories beat Keith Martin) N: 9 (NDP won Victoria, Vancouver Centre, Vancouver Kingsway and Surrey North) I: 1 (Zeisman won his seat by 2%) Territories: L: Nunavut N: NWT and Yukon Final: L: 70 C: 121 N: 51 BQ: 64 I: 2 This result is entirely within the realm of possibility.
  6. Basically, all I did was campaign in Ontario and Quebec constantly. Notables: - Jack Layton and Olivia Chow both lost their seats. - Marc Garneau and Michael Ignatieff won their seats - The NDP lost every seat east of Manitoba - Bev Desjarlais won Churchill
  7. I've won 34 seats with Dexter in your scenario, without any cheating at all. It's actually quite easy to win as the NDP using your scenario. In mine, it was nearly impossible. Thanks, Ty.
  8. Also, some of the candidates are still wrong. Hamilton Centre has Stan Keyes running for the Liberals, which he's not. And Scarborough-Rouge River has Fauzia Khan as the NDP candidate, and she's not. These are just the ones I've noticed so far.
  9. They matter in terms of realism, which is what I'd like to see, as much as possible, here.
  10. It still seems like there are glaring issues with it. First off, Jim Pankiw is still listed as a candidate in Saskatoon-Humboldt, as the incumbent no less. Pankiw is actually running as an Independant in Battlefords-Lloydminister, definately not as the incumbent. Also, it seems like the support percentages are out of whack. It's still way too easy for the NDP to win 50+ seats without even trying, plus Coyne is a little too competitive in Toronto-Danforth.
