Ontario 1990: The unexpected win by Bob Rae and the NPD against the Liberals.

Ontario 1995: An epic win by Mike Harris and the PC, with a Common Sense Revolution platform.

Gimli 2009: A fictional country based on RL Sweden, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and Iceland located in current Manitoba.

Nouvelle-France 2009: A provincial election based on my Samania scenario.

PEI 2007: A big win by the Liberals leaded by Robert Ghiz.

Yes, you're right.

First of all (especially in PEI), provincial elections are like municipal elections (so, this can be quite boring) with bread and butter issues.

Basically, we have two centrist parties with the Red Tory PC and the not-so-left-wing Liberals.

In Québec, in the 90's Ontario and maybe BC elections are much more interesting and polarized.

The Common Sense Revolution platform election of 1995 was problably one of the most important election in the last 30 years in Ontario and this with a 20 billion dollars deficit and an NDP gouvernment with a 8% approval rating. Basically, this was even more of a surprise than the 1994 US legislative election.

We have a PC which is like the US Republican Party, a centrist party (the Liberals) and a Socialist Party turned right-wing later in their mandate.

I already have a very good PEI map, however I am searching for the parties logo and leaders portraits. Also, the last PEI election was pretty one-sided, so I don't think that this will do quite a good scenario.

It was one sided yes, but it had a popular Premier go against a popular son of a former premier. It was expected to be much closer than it actually was so I still think its interesting, and if I have to, I am changing my vote to PEI.

If you are accepting write-ins Matvail, I would like to see Quebec 1970 completed, along with the other Quebec scenarios you started.

Ok, I will try to do three elections with a release date at about the same time:

Same here. I meant to say, the fictional one seems an interesting mix, i can help you find the logos for 1990 Ontario if you wish.

Yes, I would like it very much with the leaders pictures.

This is unfinished, i'll the get the NDP and PC ones tomorrow. Are they any other party logos/candidates you need apart from the 3 main parties in this scenario?

PC Logo

As for the Liberal logo, there's 2 from the 80's i found, i'm not sure if the 1993 election logo was used 3 years back, it seems more modern.

Could be mid-80's. Featured along with Peterson as Premier, perhaps when he won. Also, might a specific Ontario Liberal logo?

Every candidate and party will be in the game as like in Saskguy unfinished 2003 scenario to add maximum realism. I must say that I live in Ontario so I know quite a lot about Ontarian provincial politics.

I will also need the

Family Coalition Party

COR (Confederation of Regions) Party

Also if possible (because I already have the 2003 logo):

Green

Libertarian

Freedom

Communist

Do you have a picture of Mike Harris in 1990? I have one from 1995 but not from his first election.

These were the leaders in 1990 of minor parties, however I don't think that any pictures are available:

Family Coalition Party: Donald Pennell

Confederation of Regions Party: Dean Wasson

Green: Katherine Mathewson

Libertarian: James Stock

Freedom: Robert Metz

Communist: Elizabeth Rowley

I can't for the life of me, find any photos of Mike Harris circa 1990. I think i found the 1995 one you've mentioned:

Logos i've found:

ndpont.jpg

Would be the NDP logo circa 1990. All the Ontario NDP ones look recent, but feel free to use one of them instead.

An older version of the Family Coalition logo, circa 1999, couldn't any others.

Confederation of Regions Party Logo

Green20Party20of20Ontario20logo.jpg

Don't know if you have this one, looks 90's to me.

Couldn't find any alternative Libertarian or Communist logos.

Candidates i could find or not find:

Donald Pennell - Found something, but looks like a recent photo.

Hughes20with20Pennell.jpg

Dean Wasson - Nothing

Katherine Mathewson - Nothing

James Stock - Nothing

Robert Metz - Yes! Found an unclear photo of him circa 1986 or 1987.

Elizabeth Rowley - Yes, but a recent photo

Ok, thanks, I will use the current logos for the Communist and Libertarian party.

Which standings should I use at the beginning of the elections? I know that the Liberals were in advance in the polls at the beginning of the campaign, but I think that if I put the Liberals too strong that will win at each time against the NDP, especially that the NDP election came from a BIG protest vote especially in certain regions in Ontario.

For exemple, some regions had a high swing to the NDP, such as Southwestern Ontario and some regions such as Eastern Ontario had quite low NDP scores due to the high francophone population.
