It has to be done.. so I might as well get it over with on the first official day of the Campaign right?
Here are some predictions, prognostications and downright speculation for the election on January 23rd 2006.
One interesting facet of this election, looks like there will be 2 English debates, and one French. At least this is what I heard on the CBC last night, though it seemed not to be a sure thing.
#1: A Conservative MP will runoff at the mouth at a campaign stop in Ontario, after New Years. Much hay will be made in the media.
#2: (Assuming there are 3 debates as I said above) Jack Layton will be non-existent in two debates but be determined the winner in another.
#3: Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe will run an inept campaign, and will actually lose seats to the Liberals in Quebec.
#4: Stephen Harper will get pied… at least once.
#5: Paul Martin will get booed… everywhere.
#6: Paul Martin will win the French language debate.
#7: At least 2 out of 4 candidates will be caught on tape slipping on snow/ice/slush while “stumping”.
#8: All the leaders will be in BC more than in any other election in the history of Canada.
#9: The Liberals will be swept off The Rock (Newfoundland… they’ll keep Labrador)
#10: The Liberals will be swept off The Other Rock (PEI)
Final Seat Count:
