Projections and polls provides projections for Canadian federal and provincial elections in a non-partisan manner, and focuses primarily on the topic of political opinion polls.  The site is owned and run by Éric Grenier. a writer specializing in Canadian politics and history.   According to his site, Grenier has never been employed by, and does not support, any a political party. ThreeHundredEight refers to the number of seats in the Canadian House of Commons before the 2012 redistricting which resuled in the current three hundred and thirty eight seats.

Grenier's site has been inspired by the fantastic work of Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight, an American site that does electoral projections for congressional and presidential races and poll analysis.  Grenier's methods are inspired by but do not mimic Silver's methods.
