|Doing research on this riding before making a submission. Dates back to 1917, only twice has a Liberal won here. 1993 and 2015. In 2019 the seat goes back to Rob Moore and the CPC. I think the Liberals could sweep Atlanic Canada sans Moore's seat. Moore returns to Ottawa.|
|No Con MP was more implicated in Robocalls & Pierre Poutine than Rob Moore - people who learned the ropes in his office did the dirty work. A step back towards Harper era practices is sadly quite possible here.|
Moore, John Williamson, Richard Bragdon & Blaine Higgs have all hitched their chances to revival of Energy East & a renewed war with natives that will appeal to racists in the region. Quebec will block this doomed project regardless but these four plus Scheer have lied it back onto the table. At this point Energy East is a dog whistle that means natives have no say.
All while the Canadian conventional oil & gas industry begins to break with Tar Sands scams and ask for separate regulatory treatmnent entirely...
I predict all three EE Cons will win or all three will lose. Depends
|NB Provincial pcs won all the ridings that are within the federal riding rather easily , its a riding that should have a conservative mp federally and tough to explain how it went liberal in 2015.|
|Conservatism (Progressive or not) is tattooed onto Fundy Royal's soul; yet even with Rob Moore bidding to reclaim the blue carpet rudely pulled from under his feet in 2015, I can't offer a takeback guarantee--growing Saint John/Moncton suburbanism is one reason (even if Premier Higgs represents part of the same); another is the uncertain implications of PPC among a CoR/PANB-compatible electorate. So even if Moore wins, it could be with less than what he lost with in '15.|
|This riding has existed since 1917. In the 29 elections that have occurred in the past 102 years, it has voted Conservative in 27 of them and Liberal twice. |
The only downer to a landslide like the Liberals had in 2015 is that seats like this will inevitably flip back to their traditional inclinations. Small matter; Trudeau will still carry most of the Atlantic seats and most of Quebec to compensate for losses in seats like this one.
Unfortunately. In my opinion.
|It took a red tsunami to sweep Rob Moore aside as Atlantic Canada went 100% Liberal in 2015, yet he kept it close. No poll shows anywhere near a 40-point lead for Trudeau's Liberals in the region right now, which means some seats will certainly flip back. This is probably the first seat that will go back to the Conservatives in the region.|
The provincial election showed what it was like with a less popular Trudeau - the PC's won these seats easily (with a fairly right wing leader) and the PANB did quite well too, while the Liberals were creamed (federal and provincial results are good indicators these days). That should easily send Rob Moore back to Parliament, likely in cabinet if the Conservatives return to power.
|The one riding in Atlantic Canada that should be a given for the Conservatives, barring a monumental collapse like that in 2015.|
|Perhaps the most right-wing seat in Atlantic Canada, this was one of the flukes of the 2015 red wave. It should return to the Conservatives in this election.|
|I was shocked that this went Liberal in 2015. Now that the Liberals have their record against them, I don|
|This could well be the first seat to change hands of the night. When parties win stunning unexpected landslides in different regions, these tend to be the regions they underperform most in next time round. Rob Moore, a former Conservative MP is a star candidate in the Liberals' worst Atlantic riding, and so it's entirely plausible that the Conservatives win this even if the Liberals win a majority again.|
|Another 2015 Atlantic Liberal landslide fluke that will return to Conservative normality in 2019. The CPC may be shut out of NS/PEI/NL again but they should easily reclaim their rural NB strongholds.|
