Angus Reid Says New Democrats Poised To Win Nova Scotia Majority

HALIFAX – June 4, 2008 – Riding a wave of intense dissatisfaction with Rodney MacDonald’s tenure as Premier of Nova Scotia, Darrel Dexter appears set to become Atlantic Canada’s first New Democratic Party (NDP) premier, a new Angus Reid / CTV poll has found. [...]

46 per cent of respondents who voted for the Progressive Conservatives in 2006 saying they will not do so again this time around. These so-called PC ‘defectors’ tend to be older, better educated males and are sharply critical of Macdonald (87% disapprove of his performance as premier). [...]

The NDP is drawing about a third of voters (31%) who backed the Liberals in 2006.

Angus Reid Strategies

Ah. So when can we expect NS to have PR?

If the NDP should pull this off - I'm gonna murder me some beers in celebration. Long overdue, 'tis exactly what my native province needs. Go Dex!

Saskboy .. you mean PR like they DON'T HAVE in:
-Newfoundland
-New Brunswick
-PEI
-Quebec
-Ontario
-Manitoba
-Saskatchewan
-Alberta
-BC
-Nunavut
-NWT

Yippie!

When is Darrel Dexter going to try to become the leader of the federal Liberal Party?

I think every province should have a PR system where only one member of the legislative assembly is elected. It's all or nuthin'. Just for the sake of stability, we could have a 99-year term of office.

A majority would be sooo nice for the NS NDP. It'll give them a chance to make real change, without either conservative party stepping on the brakes.
