It's true that there is Conservative strength in this riding and the Conservatives could be competitive here again in a future eleection. But at the moment, the Liberals and Anita Anand are probably favoured. The Liberals are well ahead of the Conservatives in the federal Ontario polls and Anita Anand has a high-profile as the cabinet minister in charge of COVID vaccine procurement. She also demonstrated her strength in 2019 by beating former provincial Liberal MPP Kevin Flynn for the nomination, and then beating former Conservative MP Terence Young for the seat. Anand is off to a good start.

I'm not sure why MF believes a 7-point margin is so insurmountable. Oakville has been ‘educated’ and ‘affluent’ since forever and it hasn't stopped the seat from flipping between the two largest parties, federally or provincially. This isn't Yonge & Bloor - plenty of educated people here disagree with the current woke direction of the Liberal Party.

MF has it all wrong, this was never a safe Tory seat before, nor is it a safe Liberal seat now. This is one of the most bellwether ridings in the country. Since 1968, this riding has elected only 2 opposition members, once in 1980, when Tory Otto Jelinek won it, and once in '06 when Bonnie Brown a Liberal won it, but wait, the boundaries were different then, in Jelinek's year, there were rural parts that he won and under current boundaries he would've lost, and in Brown's year, they were areas that now belong to another riding that she did well and under current boundaries she would've lost. While a Liberal call may be right today, we don't know what's going to happen in the future

The most ‘establishmentarian’ of the 905 ridings, over the last generation Oakville has gone from a traditional Tory seat to more of a safe seat for the Liberals with the liberalization of affluent and educated voters and in line with the GTA trend. In spite of the backlash against Anita Anand by Conservative partisans, she should have little problem being re-elected.
