the great alberta election pool.

Alberta Legislative Assembly

Who will run the show after April 23?

On Monday, Albertans will go to the polls in what is already being dubbed a “historic” election. The outcome is uncertain, so why not gaze into your crystal ball and enter the Daveberta and CalgaryGrit election pool. It is simple enough – predict the seat totals for each party and answer 10 bonus questions. Everyone gets 87 points minus one point for each seat you are off per party, plus two points per correct bonus question.

Robert Vollman has generously donated the following political book prize packs (shipping extra, unless we can arrange a pick-up in Calgary, Edmonton, or Toronto):

1. The Bill of Rights package: One Canada (Diefenbaker), Memoirs (Trudeau)
2. The Preston Manning package: Thinking Big, The New Canada and Roots of Reform
3. The Jean Chretien package: The Friendly Dictatorship, Straight From the Heart
4. The Federalists package: A Nation Too Good to Lose (Joe Clark), Fighting for Canada (Diane Francis)
5. The Obscure Package: The Betrayal of Canada (Mel Hurtig), Navigating a New World (Lloyd Axworthy)

First choice goes to the overall winner, with the winners of the seat prediction portion and the bonus question portion also winning a book pack. So even if you are an Ontarian, like my friend Dan, with no clue what a “Ted Morton” is, never mind if he’ll win his seat, you can skip the bonus questions and still be eligible for the prizes, based on a shot-in-dark seat prediction.

Contest will close as soon as the polls open Monday. Please paste your entry in the comments here or at CalgaryGrit, or e-mail your picks in to david.cournoyer@gmail.com.

    I feel that there will be a minority government after Monday`s results are official. Having lived in Ottawa for a number of years and a federal public service employee for neatly 30 years, I like the Wildrose but maybe lack the necessary experience which might cause the voters to split the vote, hence a minority goverment. NDP will be quite happy being courted for their support by the winners of this historic election.

    Ah, yes! Our quadrennial “exercise in democracy” continues apace, and we’re reduced to speculating on the outcome of a horse race.

    You do realize, don’t you, that voting once every 3, 4, or 5 years doesn’t actually constitute “democracy” in any meaningful sense, right? It may be “better” than many other systems of government, but it’s far from ideal, isn’t it.

    You’re engaged in validation of the status quo, which is no way to create progressive change. I’m no revolutionary, and I recognize that the only legitimate change will come, eventually, at the ballot box. However, our choices are limited, and there’s NO discussion of expanding the breadth of decision-making beyond what it is now.

    Finally, with respect to the Senate “election”: I’m not going to legitimize this by participating. I’m going to politely refuse the ballot, as I did last time round. The refusals get recorded; spoiled ballots do not specify why they’re refused.

    I’d like to revise one of my answers. On Quest 6, I answered that Ron Leech would win his seat. I now do not think he will; therefore I would like to change my answer accordingly.

    (This does not affect my seat prediction as in my revisions I’ve had some flips.) Thanks!

    ABP: up to 1.

    I know this is more than 87 seats, I am estimating what I think the total wins will be. In a perfect world, the vote will be split amongst the right and then there will be a LIberal-NDP coalition government. One can dream.
