I had this down as a Liberal seat, but in hindsight that was premature. I have noticed that many projections have Nunavut as a Conservative gain. While I stick by what I said and still believe the Liberals are in a good position here, I would argue that the Conservative's chances have been underestimated by many, including myself. Granted, their uptick in the polls may influence the projections, but the possibility the polls are indicating is not so wild as to be ruled out.

The world's largest electoral district should have an interesting race, but that doesn't mean it won't be going Liberal again. Last time, even star candidate Jack Iyerak Anawak couldn't bring the NDP anywhere close, and a sitting Conservative minister came third. The Liberals still have a very good chance this time round but it should definitely be closer.

To correct the first poster, Tootoo wasn't kicked out of the Liberals, he resigned from the party caucus to deal with alcohol issues and stayed as an independent when he returned to parliament. There doesn't appear to be any info as to whether or not he plans to run again, be it as a Liberal or an independent, but either way, this is far from an easy call. The NDP may not be a factor this time, but the Conservatives had Nunavut for two terms before the last election, even winning with almost 50% in 2011, so I'd call this one a crapshoot at this point. While I don't expect Tootoo to run as an independent, it would certainly make this race an interesting one if it happened.
This seat will be interesting if Hunter Tootoo decides to run again as an independent. He won the seat as a Liberal but was kicked out of the Liberal caucus in 2016. Even if he does decide to make a run as an independent, I still see the Liberals winning Canada's largest riding. The CPC and NDP won't be a factor here.
