New Brunswick-2010

It's time again for another provincial election in New Brunswick.

These are the parties:

Liberal

PC

NDP

Others (Green and PANB)

The main issues will be Energy and Debt Reduction.

Will the map have more than the four regions the New Brunswick 2006 scenario had?

I am not sure, because it is a very delicate thing to do due to linguistic borders. Also, New Brunswick is a somewhat at a classic two party system (just like PEI or Newfoundland and Labrador) with the NDP which could also have a few seats at best.

However, I would maybe do it this way, if somebody could do me a good map. Doing it approximately with federal ridings borders could also be a possibility.

-Madawaska (North-West)

-Saint John Valley

-Fundy Coast (South-West)

-Fredericton

-Saint John City

-Moncton

-Southeast

-PĂ©ninsule Acadienne (North-East)

I'll do a new map, and we can go from there how you want the boundaries arranged. The federal borders seem the most straight-forward, but maybe looking at the full ridings map will help you decide how your areas could very well fit in.

Hi, its been awhile since I've been here, but was quite interested when I seen the topic and had to log in. I agree that using the federal boundaries is probably the way to go, as the four region map can get a little boring. I'm sure there must be somewhere online that shows which provincial ridings fall within each of the 10 federal ridings. Could overlapping be a problem? Anyways, that's my two cents on the scenario, I will be looking forward to this one. With twice as many regions, maybe down the road we'll be able update the older N.B. scenarios to reflect the new map.

Greens should be a seperate party, they are running in 50/55 ridings and overlap with every PANB riding.

I agree, it wouldn't make much sense to group the two parties together as "Others", as the scenario wouldn't be realistic, but I'm not sure if that was what he meant to begin with. It's posible that he was just listing the names of the other parties in the election, not actually joining them as one. However, if they are being grouped together, I would suggest that the scenario would be more appealing if all parties were included.
