This seat is a slamn dunk for the Liberals. Karatek-Lyndel will have no worries come election night!
16/10/00 L.O. Email:
Ogalik Egeesiak came fairly close to winning this riding for the PC's in 1997. There are many candidates of good repute left over after the first nunavut elections of 1999. They will be looking hard at federal politics. The PC's are still better-accepted in the riding than the alliance - particularly amoung the eastern Baffin Inuit. Some of these candidates will have already gained the ear and conditional support of voters in 1999. This seat will be very interesting. A 2 way race - but No easy take for the Liberals.
18/10/00 A.S. Email:
You know, there's something kind of (intentionally?) surreal about the standard Grit slam-dunk prediction applied to Nunavut. Still, it likely *is* theirs, although the electoral and campaign dynamics are, needless to say, far different and less inherently predictable than in the south--and candidates can be as important as parties. (Even Karetak-Lindell fell short of an absolute majority in '97.) But it'd be even more surreal if Nunavut became an *Alliance* gain...

Nancy Karetak-Lindell will easily win re-election. Dependency on the federal [Liberal] government is the tragic way of life here, and it's inconceivable that they'd rebel against it.

This one is really up in the air, I think. The old NDP government here collapsed in scandal and was wiped out in a Liberal landslide in the last provincial election. This bodes well for the Liberals federally. The countervailing force against that, of course, is the gun confiscation registry which will negatively impact the lives of just about everybody here - which puts both the NDP and the CA in play. But in the end, I think the Liberals will eke it out and sweep the north.

Anyone who thinks that the Alliance has a shot here needs a reality-check. Sure, the gun issue is important, but do you honestly think that the Arctic would elect anyone who takes serious issue with regional development programs? Liberal slam-dunk.
03/11/00 WJM Email:
If gun control didn't unseat an MP or a party in 1997, or in any by-election since 1995, it won't now. Not a voting issue for enough voters who haven't already been voting Reform/CA.

The Alliance definitely has no chance here now. Their candidate missed the filing deadline. (

Looks like the Canadian Alliance dropped the ball and failed to get a candidate nominated here before the deadline. They're appealing but it looks like this may be the only riding in the country where the Tories don't have competition on the right. Won't help them though.
09/11/00 JRFD Email:
I have no idea how this will go, but I feel I have to correct some misinformation. Nunavut (or NWT before it was split) has never had an "NDP government" in fact I don't think they have ever had a partisan government of any kind. On a related note the NDP was the only party to run a few candidates for the 1st time in a territorial election here recently and they all lost - but it is always tough for a party to break into a previously non-partisan race.
23/11/00 Joseph Papparelli Email:
With the decline of the NDP nationally, I believe there will be a sufficient split between Liberal and NDP to allow the Alliance to take the seat. There will likely also be a few votes taken from ex-PCers to add to the narrow Alliance victory.
24/11/00 MH Email:
The previous intervention forces me to say something. To comment on a constituency and predict an Alliance victory in it when the party failed to file its candidate's papers on time is just plain dim. It reminds me of what a friend said a few days ago when the Betty Granger story broke: "Alliance supporters are much like other Canadians, only somewhat more stupid and a good deal more ignorant." I thought this was unfair; now I'm inclined to agree.
24/11/00 SM Email:
someone should remind Joseph that the Alliance doesn't even have a candidate in this riding. I wonder why (that was pure sarcasm). It really says something when the Green party has a candidate here, but a major "national" right wing party doesn't.
