Fixed election dates in Canada
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Canada, some Canadian jurisdictions have passed legislation fixing election dates, so that elections occur on a more regular cycle (usually every four years) and the date of a forthcoming election is publicly known. However, the Governor General, provincial lieutenant governors and territorial commissioners still have the power to call a general election, as is traditional in Westminster-style parliamentary governments, at any point before the fixed date.

Hennessy’s Index: June 2014
Voter turnout: How low can we go?
https://www.policyalternatives.ca/publications/facts-infographics/hennessy%E2%80%99s-index-june-2014
By Trish Hennessy
June 2014

NOTE : At the end of each statement in each issue of Hennessy's Index, there's a link to the source of that statement.
You won't find any of those links below, though - just click the link above to access the individual sources.

Excerpts:

52.1
Percentage of voters who cast a ballot in the 2014 Ontario election (unofficial count), up a bit from the province’s 2011 historic low voter turnout of 48%.

64
Percentage of voters who went to the polls in the Ontario provincial election in 1990 – the election that swept the only New Democratic government to serve in the province. Voter turnout has gone down ever since.

-----------------------------------
NOTE : Click the link at the top for observations about the decline in voter turnout for each province.
SPOILER : The highest turnout was in the 2011 provincial election in Prince Edward Island, when 76.4% of eligible voters went to their polling stations.
The lowest voter turnout, 52%, was for the
2013 provincial election in British Columbia .
-----------------------------------

33
Percent of first-time voters in Canada who are actually voting – half of what first-time voter turnout was a generation ago.

#1
Main reason why Canadians say they didn’t cast a vote in the 2011 federal election: not interested (27.7% gave this response while 22.9% said they were too busy).

3.8
Percentage of Canadians who said they didn’t vote in the 2011 federal election because they forgot.
D’oh!

By Melanie Patten
October 8, 2013
HALIFAX — Voters in Nova Scotia dumped the NDP on Tuesday after giving Darrell Dexter a historic election victory four years ago, turning this time to Liberal Stephen McNeil, who swept to power on promises to bring soaring electricity rates under control while putting an end to corporate handouts.

* NB Provincial Elections-2014. The NDP and Poverty - 9/10/2014
http://frontnb.ca/uploads/file/NDP%20Platform%20and%20Poverty.pdf
The NDP has no proposal to increase basic social assistance rates for citizens living on social assistance. They are proposing instead to strengthen the Poverty
Reduction Plan by immediately setting clear targets.

* NB Provincial Elections-2014- Liberals and Poverty - 9/10/2014
http://frontnb.ca/uploads/file/Liberal%20Party%20and%20their%20Electoral%20Platform.pdf
The Liberal Party has a very good proposal on minimum wage, income tax for rich individuals and corporations, but some of their other proposals will not help to reduce poverty.

* NB Provincial Elections-2014- People's Alliance of NB Electoral Platform - 9/9/2014
The People's Alliance of NB Electoral Platform has no proposals in it to reduce poverty. It is as if poverty which affect thousands of citizens does not exist.

* NB Provincial Elections-2014. The PC Electoral Platform and Poverty - 9/9/2014
http://frontnb.ca/uploads/file/PC%20Electoral%20Platform.pdf
The Progressive Conservative Party has no proposal of any increase in the basic social assistance rates, which are some of the lowest in the country. The PC is supporting the Poverty Reduction Plan, but this new plan has no real teeth to it and not even a timetable to implement its feeble recommendations.

* NB Provincial Elections-2014- NB Green Party and Poverty - 9/9/2014
http://frontnb.ca/uploads/file/-Green%20Party%20Platform%20and%20Poverty.pdf
The Green Party is the first political party that is talking about increasing basic rates for social assistance recipients. We hope that the other political parties will propose something to help the thousands of men, women and children who are living below the poverty line.

Brian Hutchinson: B.C. premier Christy Clark’s baffling campaign strategy is to misinform, mislead and make up stuff
http://goo.gl/48ZVP
VANCOUVER — It’s no secret that Christy Clark’s government has a credibility problem.
For the B.C. Liberal party to avoid annihilation on May 14, repairing damage caused by broken promises and re-establishing trust with the electorate must be priorities. But it seems they are not. Instead of treading carefully, taking pains to ensure that whatever she presents during the election campaign is airtight, verifiable and the plain honest truth, Ms. Clark continues to misinform, mislead and just make up stuff.

Quebec's $7 daycare: the Alberta take vs. the truth
Ignore the Wildrose Line about subsidizing Quebec.
Our [QC's] affordable daycare has been a boon for provincial and federal coffers

http://goo.gl/YPbzg
By Janet Bagnall
April 19, 2012
Alberta is on the march and Quebec is in its sights. Last week, a newspaper columnist demanded to know: “Will Albertans stand up to Quebec?” Wildrose Party leader Danielle Smith, for one, intends to do just that. (...) A complaint about the unfairness of having to pay for Quebec’s luxury social programs – $7-a-day daycare, more medical coverage and low-cost tuition – is written right into the Wildrose platform.
(...)
Instead of wishing Quebec’s $7-a-day daycare system an early death, Alberta would do better to breathe some life into one of its own. Our subsidized system doesn’t cost Quebec, the federal government or any other province a dime. It is fully self-sufficient, bringing in more money than it costs in subsidies.

Last week, a paper put out by the Université de Sherbrooke’s research chair on fiscal policy and public finances [ http://goo.gl/UDquv (French only) PDF - 375K, 34 pages] showed that for every $100 the province put in, it got back $104. The federal government made out like a bandit, getting an extra $43 for putting in exactly $0.

Are Albertans really paying for Quebec’s social programs?
http://cwf.ca/commentaries/are-albertans-really-paying-for-quebec-s-social-programs
April 20, 2012
(...)The bottom line is that Albertans contribute more to confederation because our economy is strong. Someone earning $100,000 pays more taxes than someone earning $50,000. Alberta is simply home to more 6-figure salaries.
Because of that wealth, the Alberta government could afford to provide social services that would make Quebec’s seem miserly by comparison. But Albertans have chosen a different path. If Quebecers wish to keep tuition low, enjoy $7-a-day daycare while paying high taxes that risk discouraging economic growth, that’s their decision to make. Besides, would you want to trade places?

From CBC News:

Albertans elect historic 11th straight Tory government
Progressive Conservatives gain 11 more seats in worst turnout in provincial history
March 4, 2008
Despite an apparent appetite for change, voters in Alberta stuck with tried-and-true blue, giving the Progressive Conservative party an unprecedented 11th consecutive majority government in Monday night's provincial election. (...) Various polls showed anywhere from 20 to 45 per cent of voters were undecided during a campaign that saw few sparks. Voter turnout dropped even further from a dismal 44.7 per cent in the 2004 campaign to about 41 per cent on Monday night, the worst turnout in Alberta history, according to preliminary numbers.

Albertans to vote March 3
February 4, 2008
After weeks of election speculation in Alberta, it's official: there will be a provincial election March 3. Conservative Leader Ed Stelmach made the announcement less than an hour after the speech from the throne outlined his government's plans, including eliminating health care premiums over four years, increasing the number of health care workers and spending more on crime reduction.

Stelmach wins 87% of the seats with 53% of the votes from 41% of the people
March 4, 2008
The Conservatives won their 11th straight election last night, in what could be considered -- on the surface -- an impressive victory. But when you add up the numbers, they don't exactly paint a picture of a content electorate. Out of a possible 2,252,104 votes possible this year, the Stelmach government received just 501,028. However, the combination of low voter turnout and Alberta's first-past-the-post system means that even with such a low number of actual supporters, the Conservatives ended up with a majority government.

Excerpt (under "Cost of Living"):
Helping Ontario Families with the Cost of Living
(...)
We will:
*
Cap or cut hospital parking fees for those who must visit the hospital frequently
* Complete the roll-out of Full-Day Kindergarten, which saves a family up to $6,500 in child care costs per child per year
* Continue the 30% Off Tuition Grant
* Eliminate the debt retirement charge on residential hydro bills
* Increase the minimum wage to $11 on June 1, 2014 and index it to inflation after that
* Introduce our second five-year Poverty Reduction Strategy
* Increase the Ontario Child Benefit to $1,310, and index it to inflation after that
* Increase support for Children’s Treatment Centres and developmental services

These investments do not incur any additional costs that are not fully accounted for in the 2014 Budget.
If re-elected on June 12, we will move quickly to re-introduce the 2014 Budget.

Ontario Election 2014:
Provincial Parties Offer Starkly Different Approaches to Poverty Reduction

http://25in5.ca/ontario-election-2014-provincial-parties-offer-starkly-different-approaches-to-poverty-reduction/
June 10, 2014
The results of a new survey* demonstrate varying levels of commitment to poverty reduction among Ontario’s political parties, say Ontario Campaign 2000 and the 25in5 Network for Poverty Reduction. (...) Each of the parties committed to the Poverty Reduction Act in 2009, and it’s notable that two parties would move forward with poverty reduction policies while one party proposes policies that would move Ontario backwards. Nonetheless, people in poverty in Ontario need more.

True Confession : Andrea Horwath's rejection of the Liberal Government's 2014-2015 budget triggered the June 12 election.
As a direct result of this action, I didn't have an NDP sign in my front yard during the campaign for the first time in a generation, and I didn't vote NDP on June 12.
My feelings about this "new" NDP are expressed most eloquently in the May 23 letter from 34 long-time party members to Andrea Horwath:
http://goo.gl/83Akgg

According to the Liberal Plan for Ontario, "If re-elected on June 12, we will move quickly to re-introduce the 2014 Budget."
Here's a link to that budget:

* Transportation and infrastructure – a bold new plan to get goods and people moving

The Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) sent three separate questionnaires to four parties - the Greens, the Liberals, the NDP, and the Progressive Conservatives. The questions are about issues related to Ontario Works (OW), the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), and various income security programs and policies - poverty reduction, extended medical benefits, WSIB and EI.

ISAC has compiled the party responses into three separate charts (for OW - ODSP - Income Security), which you will find at the above link. There, you will also find the full text of the parties' responses, along with the questions that were asked of each party.

Think you've got your partisan stripes sorted for next month's Ontario election? CBC's online democratic engagement tool Vote Compass holds a mirror to voters to help them better see their true political colours, according to developers.

"We've had a broad range of reaction, from, 'It told me what I already knew' … to 'That's interesting, it wasn't quite what I was expecting,'" said Cliff van der Linden, founder and CEO of Vox Pop Labs, which created Vote Compass.

CBC News has again partnered with Vote Compass for the 2014 Ontario election campaign. Users of the anonymous interactive online tool are presented with 30 statements and prompted to choose how they feel about a given public policy issue.

[The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.]

Quebec election: Liberals win majority:
Parti Québécois Leader Pauline Marois loses own seat
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/quebec-votes-2014/quebec-election-liberals-win-majority-1.2601555
April 7, 2014
Nineteen months after they were ousted from power, the Liberals in Quebec will form the province's next majority government.
The Liberals took 70 seats in the 125 seat National Assembly, the Parti Québécois 30, the Coalition Avenir Québec 22 and Québec Solidaire three.

The Liberals entered this election campaign as the official opposition, but battled back from a public backlash and integrity questions that saw the province elect its first Parti Québécois minority government in the fall of 2012. The election itself, called early by the PQ with majority hopes in sight, was a gamble from the start — and it's one the party lost. Pauline Marois, who lost her own seat in her Charlevoix–Côte-de-Beaupré riding, stepped down as party leader during an emotional concession speech in front of her supporters.

Titles uploaded to date include: Thomas Paine's Common Sense - Marx and Engels' Communist Manifesto - Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf - Jean-Jacques Rousseau's The Social Contract - Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations - more...

Two favourites of mine from this list appear below, including the link to the complete book online and a blurb by Mondo Politico:


1984
- by George Orwell
"1984 has long been the first book to which we have turned for a vivid picture of a government that has used war to justify infringement on freedom; that has used speech codes to limit everyone's ability to understand higher concepts or concepts that favour human individuality; that uses powerful media to build unwarranted consensus and rewrite history; and that has used technology to nip political opposition and individualistic or eccentric practices in the bud. Far from being a caricature, it insightfully and skilfully characterizes the tendencies and motivations of unlimited government power, and the horrifying, hopeless result of such government: humanity denied its freedom to think, to be rational, and to dissent...its freedom to be human....."

Animal Farm - by George Orwell
"Written as a 'fairy story' (Orwell titled the book 'Animal Farm: A Fairy Story'), the subject of Animal Farm is very much aimed at an adult audience. Orwell paints a vivid picture of a violent political revolution of farm animals against the farmer who owns all, works the animal population hard, sends their offspring to slaughter, and feeds them little. Arguably not critical of revolution itself, Orwell describes an all-to-familiar corruption that undermines the goal of the revolution: in which those leading the revolution rally the masses not so much for the good of the masses, but so that the leaders can assume the role of master, complete with all of the oppressive conduct that goes with an authoritarian regime...."

More titles to come: *Republic (Plato)* Leviathan (Hobbes)* Locke's Second Treatise of Government* On Liberty (Mill)* Rights of Man (Paine)* Das Kapital (Marx)* Anthem (Rand)
