Electing race privilege in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan is in the closing days of a provincial election. The campaign has been low-key, and the pundits have already proclaimed the electoral success of Brad Wall's Saskatchewan Party. The Liberals have imploded and the Greens are frantically playing catch-up with a new leader, Victor Lau. The former NDP powerhouse is widely predicted to be approaching its worst electoral results in decades, and its leader Dwain Lingenfelter has been the object of Harper-style attack ads by the Sask Party brain trust.

Into this context, some genuine policy discussion has been offered, though it has been poorly framed by both politicians and its codependent media.

A case of Orange crush, Newfoundland style?

Politics in Newfoundland and Labrador tend to be ruled from one side or the other. Results skew madly. There are dearths and dominances, and rarely a level playing field.

Andrea Horwath: The rabble interview

After a strong performance in the Ontario leaders' debate last week, provincial NDP leader Andrea Horwath has kept up momentum by traveling around the province, letting voters know that her party represents change for Ontarians. She told rabble.ca in an interview on Sunday about what shape some of those changes will take.

Meg Borthwick: Ontario NDP support went up in the polls immediately following the debate. It must be very gratifying to know that you stand on your own, that this has not a whole lot to do with increasing support at the federal level.
