My Election 41 pool pics

Some weeks back some local Liberals got together, we each chipped-in $20, and we did a draft of all 308 electoral districts in Canada. It's like a hockey pool, but for political nerds. After the next election, the person that drafted the most Liberal ridings wins.

For those interested, here are my picks. I expect the Liberals in these ridings to not disappoint me, and work very hard. There's big (not really) bucks on the line here!

St Laurent-Cartierville, York West, Cardigan, Bourassa, Scarborough Centre, Mississauga East—Cooksville, Don Valley East’ Madawaska—Restigouche’ Mississauga—Streetsville, Mississauga South, Vancouver South, Oakville, Burlington, Thornhill, Brant, Miramichi, Richmond, Ottawa Centre, West Vancouver--Sunshine Coast--Sea to Sky Country, Algoma--Manitoulin—Kapuskasing, Cambridge, Victoria, Tobique—Mactaquac, Parry Sound—Muskoka, Windsor—Tecumseh, Lambton--Kent—Middlesex, Niagara West—Glanbrook, Delta--Richmond East, Carleton--Mississippi Mills, New Brunswick Southwest, South Surrey--White Rock—Cloverdale, Calgary West, Wellington--Halton Hills, Charleswood--St. James—Assiniboia, Renfrew--Nipissing—Pembroke, Terrebonne—Blainville, Port Moody--Westwood--Port Coquitlam, Verchères--Les Patriotes, Skeena--Bulkley Valley, Okanagan—Coquihalla, Cypress Hills—Grasslands, Lethbridge, Prince George--Peace River, Vegreville--Wainwright

Obviously this is in the order drafted, and I won't hold high hopes for a Liberal sweep of rural Alberta. And with seven of us drafting, the solid Liberal ridings went quick. I was happy to get my sentimental first pick though, and I'm interested to see if my drafting strategy will pay dividends or not.

HE HE - Just spotted Vegreville--Wainwright. Libs can pick that one up maybe if we found out the Cons were illegally channeling public funds to the Bloc or something. Ya I know, you were running out of ridings. Still funny to see.
