Alberta 2012


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am currently working on an Alberta 2012 scenario (using the 2015 one as a starting base). Any local insight/ideas are much appreciated

Completed so far;

  • Party Leaders, Logos,
  • Regional percentages (2012 results with a shift to the Wildrose to account for their large poll leads)

Incomplete;

  • Issues and party platforms, Leader positions
  • Regional issue positions
    • These are the issues and planned party positions interpreted from the manifestos I could find online and the 2015 scenario issues.

2012 - Alberta

As Premier Alison Redford dropped the election writ, she sets off a 28-day provincial campaign that will send Albertans to the polls on April 23 2012. Redford requested Lt.-Gov. Donald Ethell end the Legislature, setting off what is expected to be one of the most competitive election battles in decades. The 28-day campaign will see the PC leader try to extend her party’s 41-year grip on power, while Danielle Smith of the Wildrose Alliance, Raj Sherman of the Alberta Liberals, Brian Mason of the NDP, and Glenn Taylor of the Alberta Party will all be trying to end the Tory dynasty that started in 1971.

Features;

  • Election Data based on official election results with voter shifts to reflect pre-campaign polling
  • 9 Parties and the Electoral Commission as an observer party.
  • Lots of events from the Calgary Herald
  • Issues and regional centres (Definitions are quite generic to reflect a multitude of parties.)
  • Campaign funding totals from Elections Alberta

As far as I've known, Aboriginal Affairs is a strictly and reserved power for the Federal Government alone, as the successor to "the Crown," who signed all those treaties, and explicitly stated as such a jurisdiction in the Constitution Act (formerly British North America) act 1867, and not altered in the Canada Act 1982. This has not stopped Provincial Governments from trying to deal with First Nations directly from a perceived status of legal authority, but the First Nations always tend to "remind," the Provincial Government of the exclusive Federal jurisdiction, especially if they don't like fully what the Province is saying, or the Province is not offering money or a land increase up front, I'm afraid to say. It's like all of those U.S. Gubernatorial scenarios, where "Military Intervention," "Foreign Affairs," "Foreign Trade," "National Security," "Immigration," and "Social Security," are just still in the issues list, and not replace by issues specific to that state and race. Just a bit of advice there. Otherwise, looking good (except the Wildrose Alliance only got 12 seats in 2012, so your example game is FAR better of an election campaign than they did- perhaps slightly on the implausible, if not IMPOSIBLE side - but TheorySpark games let us do that to a degree - there have been players here who've beaten Reagan in 1984 U.S. Presidential scenarios, so...).

Thanks for the feedback, that is useful to know (re the reserved powers), the issues are going to be adjusted in an updated version once I get some more free time to research further.

In the version released yesterday, the starting polls has been updated since the early sneak preview and reflects a much closer race. The Wildrose have a significant percent of the vote set at 'leaning' to facilitate for a flow to the PC's during the campaign.
