I’m going to claim victory on my by-election predictions. I got the winners right (easy) as well as the order of the second and third place finishers. I was right on the money on Blaikie’s popular vote at 54 % and was quite close in guessing the overall turnout (I was off by only 2 % in both cases 29 % vs 31 % in The Pas and 39 % vs 37 % in Elmwood).
The only thing I was off was the margin of victory for the NDP in The Pas. I guess the north hasn’t forgotten about these Tory pledges.
And what a weak quote by Hugh .
Now, budget time.
