I have the map totally done, but I need some issues and issue stances.

The candidates I am thinking of doing are

NDP

Gary Doer (off by default)

Nancy Allan

Steve Ashton

Gord Mackintosh

Theresa Oswald

Greg Selinger

Jennifer Howard

Paul Moist

Gerrard Jennissen

Peter Bjornson

Ron Lemieux

George Hickes

Bidhu Jha

Kerri Irvin-Ross

Pat Martin (off)

Bill Blaikie (off)

Judy Wasylycia-Leis (off)

Progressive Conservative

Hugh McFadyen

Kelvin Goertzen

Heather Stefanson

Ron Schuler

Ken Waddell

Brian Pallister (off)

Merv Tweed (off)

Vic Toews (off)

Sam Katz (off)

Liberal

Jon Gerrard

Kevin Lamoureux

Paul Hesse

Gord Steeves

Green

Andrew Basham

Communist

Darrell Rankin

Freedom (liberatarian)

no candidates yet

for issues I am thinking

-Bipole III

-Bill 37

-Balanced Budget

-Environment

-Energy

-First Nations People

-Crime

For primaries endorsers i would put each parties caucuses vas na endorser, plus a few of the notable federal MP's and maye city councilors plus the current MLA's. General endorsers would be the newspapers. I guess doer would also be an endorser if he didn't run and if he idd, it would just give him enough momentum to make sure he didn't lose the primiaries

I really just need help with issues and % for each primary candidate

EDIT I took the greens down to only Basham, so that there is more allowance for candidates in the NDP and PC. I also added more PC candidates. (they are some of the MP's whose names were floated for the 2006 leadership. Each of them would have a significant chance at unseating McFayden). Removed Oliver-Job as liberal candidate (too little information) and added Sam Katz as PC candidate (off by default)

I don't think I will do the former liberal leader, Giunny Hasselfield and Sharon Carstairs and will instead do Gord Steeves and Paul Hesse as liberal candidates

Edit: I'm probably going to have to cut down some of the NDP candidates, and maybe amke them vice-leaders

I have a little bit of a problem that I tohught I should tell you about. Today, the preliminary ridiings redistricting map was released. There are really no major changes, except a few seats beceom a little bit more competitive. A seat was removed in the southwest area of the province, hurting the conservatives, but it was replaced by a seat just east of Winnipeg, making the conservatives more competitive in the new seat and the adjacent riding. It probably will not really hcange anything, so I figured it would be easier not to change it because there are no population/eligible voter numbers for these new rdings, or the old ones that were adjusted

Maybe add official languages as an issue?

I don't know, that's not really that big an issue in Manitoba, I mean there are french people but there don't seem to be any problems between the two groups.

By the way, I only really have to do percentages and endorsers to do now.

Yes, maybe something like that:

Official Languages

-We should make Manitoba billingual with an apology

-We should give French services in all areas of the province with more funding and consider making Manitoba billingual

-Status Quo

-We should eliminate French services

-We should make Manitoba an English Only province

This is a good idea. I have all of the issues named already but sometimes thinknig of descriptions is hard so I probably will end up using this. How would cnadidates be gauged on this issue though, I mean it's hard to find a politician who would take the far right description

Sorry, it took me so long to reply, I've been out in 'wilderness' (and I use that term very loosely) for two weeks and I am going back out tomorrow for a few more days.
