Hash, what's with the username? I know North Bay is a seedy little town, but I was wondering what is making you laugh at it. I'm going to be going there in August, as I do every summer.

Inside joke related to somebody I know who's from North Bay.

I need to stop making fun of North Bay then. Too bad, considering that the only person I know from North Bay is a daily comedy tour.

Sorry to break the gloating, but returning this thread to its original intent. Here's Ottawa-Orleans.



The NDP actually won a poll! They had come close in that one in 2008. It includes a bunch of sketchy social housing in Blackburn Hamlet (which is pretty much a sh**thole).

Aside from that, little change aside from Liberal gains in Hiawatha Park (north of the 417) and Tory gains in high-growth Avalon. My own poll voted Liberal by a 10-pt margin or so.

I should have a fun riding this afternoon.

ha. The NDP winning a poll in that riding is hilarious. We never run a serious campaign there. I'll have to do a google street view of that poll to check it out.

It's a bunch of small, poor, sketchy social housing. I think it's also quite ethnically diverse. It's not a place to take a field trip to.

Interesting stuff in the Toronto maps. Italians in the city remained loyally Liberal, the Portuguese and Spanish went NDP. The Chinese-Cantonese were more likely to vote Liberal on the whole than the other Chinese (except in dwtn Toronto).

Two more cool maps:

Ottawa-Vanier:



NDP swept Sandy Hill and much of Lowertown, and also carried Vanier and Overbrook/those places south of Montreal Rd. Vanier is historically Francophone (but increasingly multicultural) and also rather poor, and historically very much Liberal. The NDP carrying it makes sense but is telling of the Liberal rout. Lots of 3-way or close 2-way Lib-NDP races in a lot of the riding.

The Liberals did do well in Rockcliffe Park (which went Tory in 2006) again. Conservatives won Beacon Hill North (anglo suburb) and Pineview (suburb).

and Westmount:



Westmount vs. NDG/downtown. Obviously.

Weird thing I just noticed:

How the hell did the Liberals get their best result since 1993??!! Won a fair number of polls - all in new suburban areas!

Are there any other areas you're interested in?

Hey, welcome to the forum. I was wondering if you could get some maps for Ahuntsic, Bourassa, Honore-Mercier, Richmond-Arthabaska, Bas Richelieu-etc and Haute-Gaspesie-La Mitis etc. Thanks!

I take it the southern end of Ahuntsic is anglo?

No, allophone. That dividing line is St. Laurent Blvd, the historical division between French and English/allophone. It's extremely marked in Papineau, where the area south of St. Laurent is very allophone. NDP did poorer with Anglos and allophones in Quebec.

I thought all of Ahuntsic was pretty much allophone. Tongue
That road being Boulevard Saint Laurent makes sense to me.


Ahuntsic is historically an old franco middle-class area. The riding as a whole is still 56% Franco and 26% non-white.

All Albertans I know are Liberals (or perhaps NDP), which is quite amusing.
