Prediction for Calgary: Tories lose Calgary-West to Wildrose. Wildrose keep Glenmore and Fish Creek. Liberals keep Buffalo and Mountain View. Tories sweep the rest.

You’re welcome. We borrowed them from Elections Alberta.

John Moore, that sounds pretty likely but I would leave open the chance for the odd extra Liberal hold and Wildrose gain, just depending on how the local races and wider campaign go. That said, I would put real money on the PCs retaking Glenmore. That was a by-election fluke that came from depressed turn out and a lot of PC voters breaking Wildrose (and Liberal, the second place finishers) as a protest. The riding really isn’t demographically a strong Wildrose kind of place.

i agree with John Moore but I would also give Lougheed to Wildrose and Carpay (I think it is Lougheed – Dave Rodney in danger – this mountain could be higher than everest)

Lougheed could be interesting. You never see or hear from Rodney unless he is handing out a cheque – – perhaps working on things like the defunct Shawnessey golf course, etc., rather than pushing for completion of the Stony Trail East/South. Carpay has a local meeting going on on the 27th, otherwise hasn’t seemed to make much of an effort to become known in the area. Let’s see if Rodney does better this time than 2008 – he was “to busy” to attend a political forum and was invisible during the election run-up. He was with Morton for the leadership but quickly moved to Redford when the writing was on the wall (totally self-survival). About 5000 pc votes and about 2500 liberal votes over time in Lougheed. Perhaps Rodney is now “left enough” for the Liberal voters so they may go to PC. NDP is running a candidate so who knows – PC and Wildrose could split the vote with the NDP coming up the middle. Long shot, yes, but so were QC in the federal election and Nenshi for the mayoralty.

Or the NDP and the PC split the liberal vote and the red tory votevand the conservative wild rose pulls off a squeaker – it will be one race to watch among many

What I can’t believe is that the Wildrose is pushing so hard against the drunk driving law. This is going to cost them a lot of seats in the cities. Way out of touch policies.

@John Moore – Andrew Constantinidis couldn’t beat Kyle Fawcett for a PC nomination. what makes you think he’s a lock in West? This is a serious question.

It is not a drunk driving law that is the problem – it is seizure without due process. Ask for stats with regard to who has accidents – it is the 2x legal limit etc. Let us get those off the road first.
Does anyone know who Alberta Voter Research Group out of Edmonton is? They have been calling someimes up to 19 x per household and Wildrose is getting blamed – but I called and there is no contract with wildrose so who hired them? I cannot find out who they are and who hired. A bit of dirty tricks happening?

Opposing the 0.05 law is really going to hurt the Wildrose in the cities. Big miscalculation on their part. Too bad, my MLA is Wayne Cao and he could use the boot.

Dave, thanks for the excellent election coverage. I’m part of a network working on increasing citizen engagement in the next election. I’ve recommended your blog to its members…it’s a great way for us to stay current.

Understand that one of the Anderson boys, Justin, has packed it in as the Wildrose candidate in Calgary Varsity. Haven’t been able to find it anywhere. Dave, in your travels, can you add any weight to this rumor?
