2000 election issues


Recommended Posts

I'm beginning work on my 2000 scenario again, and I'm looking for more events to include. I'm looking for real-life events, as I like to keep my scenarios as historically accurate as I can. I currently have the U.S. election and the "Asian invasion" scandal, and it seems that I read something once about Day making some controversial remarks on healthcare, but I can't seem to put my finger on that again. So, if anyone can point me toward the details of that or any other key events and the dates that they took place, I'd be grateful!

I've done the party percentages for the ridings in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. I'm planning on getting Ontario done tomorrow, so I should have that finished in the next few days. I still have to do the political units file, which is time consuming because I'll have to enter all the candidates names, so that will take a few days probably since I just work on it when I can. The rest of the work is relatively minor though, so hopefully it won't be long until its done.
