In NWT, the NDP's Dennis Bevington stands a good chance of being elected -- last time he came within 53 votes of beating Ethel Blondin-Andrew. That explains Jack Layton's trip to Yellowknife to support Bevington. In Nunavut, though, Karetak-Lindell shouldn't have a problem. Look for NWT to swing NDP, but Nunavut to stay Liberal.

With over 85% of the population being Inuit, Nunavut has (suprise, suprise) the highest % of aboriginals/first nations. Economically the territory is almost entirely reliant on Government transfer payments; pretty much the only jobs are in yon basic primary sector industries, and the service sector in places like Iqaluit. IIRC there are some longterm schemes to change that, but seeing as nowt has happend yet and much has been promised over the years...
The area used to be covered by a riding called Nunatsiaq and has actually been held by all three major parties since the '70's... although it's been solidly red since 1988... and if one of the other parties can find a candidate with a lot of name recognition in the more remote Inuit communities, an upset is always possible.

Candidates in the north win because of who they are not because of what party they happen to be from. That being said, I think that the current MP is very popular here, IIRC, she held this seat since before Nunuvut even existed. I expect she will continue to do so for the time being.

Nunavut has a long history of supporting the Liberals. Native groups have a tendancy of favouring them because they are in government. Also, the incumbent, Nancy Karatek-Lindell is popular. If Ethel Blondin-Andrew is ousted in Western Arctic, I would expect Mrs. Karatek-Lindell will get a cabinet spot providing the Liberals hand on to win the election.

This is a very strong liberal area and besides people tend to vote for local candidates as opposed to party, so no matter how unpopular the liberals become, they won't be hugely affected here. Nancy Karetek-Lindell is well-liked and will easily be re-elected. As a region that is commonly neglected, having a strong MP who will advocate for the region is very important for the residence.

Nancy has this one in the bag, no matter how bad the libs do she will not lose this one.
