NDP sweep to massive majority government in Nova Scotia

A continuation from this thread

 

http://rabble.ca/babble/atlantic-provinces/nova-scotia-election-results

 

Once again Liberals show us their high ethical standards

 

And in Truro-Bible Hill, a traditional Tory stronghold, actress Lenore Zann was elected for the NDP.

Zann received an apology before the campaign began when a Liberal campaign worker leaked to the media a topless photo of her.

The digitally blurred image featuring a bare-breasted Zann - which aired on a TV newscast - was taken from her appearance on the The L Word, an American-Canadian television melodrama about a circle of lesbian friends and lovers

So farewell to Nova Scotia
Premier Rodney McDonald
May your future dark and dreary be
For when I first joined the party back in 1984
Never did I think the Premier would be NDP

seems like a lot of them will be looking for new employment opportunities, wonder what their chances are after pulling shit like this?

Common Sense De...

Ontario NDP take note: this tremendous success came from presenting a centerist platform that spoke to "pocketbook" issues. 

Most notably the fuel tax.

This is the key to engineering voter appeal.  The people must be bought.

Elecrtoral success will not come from socialist sabre rattling.  It scares educated propertied people. (i.e. the middle class)

Stick on the message of anti HST, talk down the rest of the wacko rhetoric, keep it simple, hire organizers that worked on the Nova Scotia campaign (and not  inner circle flunkies who will only give you an half day labour for a full day wage) since they are no doubt pumped by their victory, bring in the new Nova Scotia premier for photo ops and show Ontarians that we can do it here too.  

Good luck!

KenS

Don't agree that a centrist platform is required, or that it is a necessary adjunct of the other things you mention. There is plenty of territory between the cardboard cutouts of socialist sabre rattling and centrist.

And I vehemently disagree that people needed to be bought. In either polling questings or even probing focus groups I doubt you would find the little HST tax cuts had much impact on people.

They presumably did play a role in continuing the long term stream of the NDP differentiating... but even there its not at all clear that is a pure pocketbook pitch.  Certainly not something as simple as 'buying'.

NorthReport

Looks like an olive branch - let's grab it, and work together for the environment.

 

Greens like NDP victory

 

http://thechronicleherald.ca/Election/9012110.html

KenS

I read it as just something for them to say.

This isn't the Green Party of Canada. It's a rinky dink tiny outfit with absolutely no base. There really isn't anything to work with except a name. And working with an empty brand to my mind is just a gesture withhout substantive or pragmatic purpose.

KenS

I posted this at the tail end of the predecessor thread.

Greens get 2% of vote

http://thechronicleherald.ca/Election/9012097.html

Actually, 2.3%

 The leader ran in the riding with by far the largest student population, and got 4%

Quote:
the Greens have received about $307,000 in public funding since 2006, based on the number of votes it received in the previous election.

The party spent about $30,000 this time around, compared to about $10,000 in its first campaign in 2006. 

 

So, with as much total revenue as the NSNDP had in the mid-Nineties, in the 3 years since public funding started the NSGP has gone backwards slightly in the vote share. In fact, barely maintaining the 2% required to keep that $11,000 per month coming in.

And the little attention they got during the campaign was a hundred times more than they get the rest of the time. Yet they spent only $30K of all that money on the election?

Certainly wonder where the money does go.

KenS

I'm going to abandon a duplicte thread I started at the same time as this one, and bring here the content from it:

 

Here's my cabinet speculation.

Definites:

Maureen MacDonald

Howard Epstein

John MacDonell

Graham Steele

Leonard Preyra

Percy Paris

Bill Estabrooks

Pretty Sure:

Michele Raymond

Marilyn More

Frank Corbett

either Stirling Beliveau or Vicki Conrad [probably latter]

 

Beyond that, way too many variables to juggle.

I think it would be really cool if 26 year old Matt Wynott is in Cabinet. Has a good shot because he is capable, confident, and has worked closely with Darell and caucus.

reply to apoint that most of those are from Metro:

3 of those 11 are Metro.

I just said who I think will be there. The veterans are predominately from Metro. There are none among the new/newer MLAs I would pick as particular ones going to be there.... but at least several will be there, and they are all from the rural mainland.

[John Mac is rural mainland. Conrad and/or Bellivieu, ditto. Corbett, Cape Breton.]

 

___________________________________________________________________

 

Lenore Zann by the way is not just a world travelling actress. She's also someone who clearly understands the culture industry, and has spent a lot of time since returning to her hometown lobbying hard to open a performing arts school there as part of the community college system.

Other than that, I know very little or nothing other than thier bios about most of the new MLAs. I don't remember hearing that any of them has any kind of political or comparable experience- Zann included.

I'm guessing that being new to actually running government, Darrel is going to be pretty cautious about adding many rookies to the mix; and probably none in the inner circle and/or higher profile ministries.

 

Stockholm

"This isn't the Green Party of Canada. It's a rinky dink tiny outfit with absolutely no base. There really isn't anything to work with except a name."

 

That sounds just like the Green Party of Canada to me!

KenS

Maybe everybody in Canada has heard it. But if you haven't, Scott's words are a takeoff after the first line of the anthemic song.

KenS

We don't agree on that.

But using your standard of measurement, if the GPC is a rinky dink outfit, then the NSGP is a barely visible speck.

Stockholm

sounds about right to me.

 

BTW: I wonder what EMay and the Green party would have to say about the fact that despite her chewing up vast resources on trying to win Central Nova and supposedly building a base for the so-called Green Party there - it would appear from looking at the provincial numbers that any "roots" that the greens tried to establish in that area are DEAD. If you look at the five provincial ridings that are in the federal riding of Central Nova - it is notable that the NS Greens had almost no support at all - literally about 1% in each riding. How come May didn't unleash her "army" or volunteers to try to elect any of her provincial green compatriots in that area?

Hunky_Monkey

KenS...

I have a feeling that either Clarrie MacKinnon or Charlie Parker (probably Parker) will also be in cabinet.  Darrell will probably have to pick one of three Pictou MLA's to be in cabinet. 

KenS

True.

[and same principle as me saying either Conrad or Bellivieau]

And in both Pictou and South Shore cases [3 and 5 MLAs]- at least one from each.

David Young

Predicting Cabinet members, are we?

I'll give it a shot!

Since Darrell has said it would be a 12-member cabinet, not including himself.  Sounds like he might take on a portfolio himself.

Graham Steele will be finance minister.  Of that I'm sure. (1)

John MacDonell as Agricultural Minister. ditto (2)

Both Cape Breton M.L.A.'s, Frank Corbett and Gordie Gosse, will be there. (3 & 4)

The 'Class of '98' members, Maureen MacDonald, Charlie Parker, & Bill Estabrooks will probably be there.  (5, 6, & 7)  Howard Epstein would most likely not get a cabinet post, but rather be given Government Whip, or possibly be nominated for Speaker.

Sterling Beliveau (Fisheries) and Vicki Conrad (Transportation?) would be likely, as Western N.S. representation (8 & 9)

For geographic reasons, Ramona Jennex (Kings South) and Lenore Zann (Truro-Bible Hill) would be looked at. (10 & 11)

Which leaves one cabinet post for another Metro M.L.A. (Percy Paris?  Marilyn More?  Michelle Raymond?) tough to choose!

Those are my guesses!

Stay tuned!

Hunky_Monkey

I hope that Dexter actually breaks his campaign pledge for just a 12 member caucus... though I doubt it.  Wasn't the best idea especially now with 31 MLA's.

I'm a complete outsider.  The main thing about a small cabinet is that it allows the premier to pretty much limit his choices to like minded people.  So, I doubt, from what I've heard about them, that either Epstein or Preyra will get in.

Pennywise

My main concern about the cabinet is the likelihood he'll use the 'critic' assignments - i.e., if they were finance critic, they'd become finance mnister.  If that's so, then it looks like he has seriously underused a number of the very qualified long standing MLA's,particularly some women.  Not sure if this is concious or not.  The main obvious one is Maureen MacDonald, a social worker with wonderful grass roots connection.  For her to be public accounts and Worker's Comp critic doesn't make sense.  Community Services or Health seem more likely.  Trevor Zinck's bio doesn't add up to him having that critic role. My sense is that Daryl is keeping the most effective lobbyists from their natural portfolios so he and Graham can get hold of the finances initially. 

That's fine for awhile, but my fear is that if this continues, Daryl will be able to maintain an iron grip on the purse, but lose any sense of vision of working towards a more just society.  I was in Ontario during Rae time - I didn't like most of what he did, but he gave portfolios to skilled qualified people, who brought in policies that did NOT cost a lot, and improved the lives of vulnerable people to this day. - For example, making the Power of Attorney's act to cover personal care and finances, and the forms easily filled out by lay people.  Gave seniors control of decision making - which here in N.S. is decades behind.  A small example of being able to not open the 'tax and spend' fear, but give people a sense of real change. 

JaneyCanuck JaneyCanuck's picture

Oh Gawd, Nova Scotialism, lol

I hesitate to engage in cabinet punditry. There can only be so many from Hfx and I see no one else from Dartmouth given that the Premier himself is from there - geography, gender, diversity, the three regions et al all must be considered. Cape Breton has to have a member so it's likely Frank Corbett because he is the veteran. He has served as House Leader and Energy Critic so that might be his place.

I do agree that Graham Steele absolutely will be in cabinet. He is not the only lawyer but a Rhodes' scholar who also worked for the party as Director of Research and counel to the Workers Compensation Board AND his role as finance critic gives him an advantage here. Howard Epstein is also a lawyer and really should be Min of the Environment because of his background with the Ecology Action Ctre which people tend to forget - maybe him, lol. Tho, Speaker could also be a possibility. I see energy and environment together in a small cabinet but then, when he made that "suggestion", Darrell was not thinking massive majority, lol

Maureen MacDonald is also definitely IN, either as Health or Social Services or a combined portfolio.That has been done before by various govts, ie Health and Community Services for ex in NB. She has served as critic for both, has a PhD in social work, knows the territory - I have seen her at hospital meetings AND social work ones so she can do it.

Obviously, one of the new people from the amazing ridings either has to be in cabinet now or later. Gry Burrill, even though he has never served in the leg, could be in cabinet - he does possess a MDiv from Harvard and ran a progressive magazine so possibly Minister of Tourism or OMG, I don't know, lol (I m getting tired, lol) Then again, Vicki Conrad, who won Queens so valiantly in 2006, could also be Min of Tourism. She could rep that area of the province. We still need someone from the northern part of the province and it can be Gary or the retired civil servant who was a civil servant manager- if he was not so new, I might say Health but that is such a complex portfolio and there really is no nurse or doctor elected for the NDP. Closest is an Additions manager. Lots of people have prob served on health boards but not major ones that I can see at least - except for people who will be in cabinet anyway - Maureen, Darrell, etc. There HAS to be someone from Pictou and it will by virtue of paying one's dues I think, the veteran of the threesome- maybe Clairrie McKinnon. Since he is working on a PhD in a marine subject, he too might be good in energy/environment though there is also fisheries to think of.And agriculture.

NB  made the huge mistake of putting those two together once and it was an unmitigated disaster. Maybe add it to forestry and Mr. Prest,  who ran a family lumber biz or worked in it - I'd have to know more about that to speculate. Mechelle Raymond, a lawyer and investment specialist, also would be a good choice for cabinet and I think former SMU poli sci prof Leonard Preyra also should be considered for some portfolio. There is also the only African Nova Scotian, Percy Paris, who has lectured and worked at Dal and has served as education critic. He should be given an opportunity in Education. And Lenore Zann - heritage Minister????

Those are my initial thoughts even though I had not planned to do this, lol

How long before they start cutting back services because "the bad economy forces tough choices".

NorthReport

Let's be magnanimous (showing or suggesting nobility of feeling and generosity of mind <too sincere for dissimulation, too magnanimous for resentment) in victory.

 

The Geens offered praise last nite - let's use it as a launching pad to let bygones be bygones, and work together to protect our precious environment, for our future generations, from now on.

 

Anyway, it doesn'y matter how others act, it's how we conduct ourselves that count. Let's make friends and influence people.

From my reading of the legislation, the "Green Party bonus" ($0.90 per vote + $125,000 instead of $1.50 per vote) only existed for the first two full fiscal years of the legislation, which if it isn't up now will be at the end of this fiscal year in any event.  That leaves the Greens with only 9851 votes getting just $14,776 per year.  Contrast to the NDP at $279,000; Liberals at $168,000; PCs at $151,000.  [Note that numbers are not adjusted to reflect the inflation provisions in the law.]

 

The legislation:

 

21A (1) Each fiscal year the Minister of Finance shall pay out of the Consolidated Fund to each recognized party

(a) in the first two full fiscal years in which this Section is in force,

    (i) one dollar and fifty cents for each vote received by candidates representing that party in the most recent general election, or

     

    (ii) where a recognized party elects, ninety cents for each vote received by candidates representing that party in the most recent general election plus, where the recognized party was registered pursuant to Section 177A of the Elections Act on January 1, 2007, one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars; and

     

(b) in subsequent fiscal years, one dollar and fifty cents for each vote received by candidates representing that party in the most recent general election.

JaneyCanuck JaneyCanuck's picture

Thx Penny - tho my goodness, I need to learn to be brief! One friend now asks for the Cole's Notes versions of my emails, lol

Adam T

Janey, I enjoy reading your posts in their entirety.

I agree there are synergies (to use a business buzz word) that make health and social services a good fit to go together.  This is especially true with some provinces emphasizing  'health teams' rather than just family physicians to treat medical problems, and preferably, to prevent medical problems.  The United States has a Secretary of Health and Human Services as well.

The problem is, a combined ministry of health and social services would probably be responsible for more than half the budget, which is probably giving too much to one minister.  It likely makes more sense to have two ministers and have a cabinet committee and liason teams to synthesize the collective work of the two ministries.

moriarty

To all the folks making cabinet predictions:

I thought it was pretty clear from Dexter's victory speech that he wants to reward Skabar.  He mentioned Cumberland North twice and then Brian by name again when he did his earmuff headset interview (why do they make them wear those anayway?).

Unfortunately, if Darrell sticks to the 12 promise, someone from the incumbent caucus will have to be bumped to make room.  The cabinet needs its political minister for Cumberland County.

 

 

David Young

Since Darrell will need a representative from Northern Nova Scotia, and there are two rookies to choose from, the pressure to appoint the female to cabinet will be strong.

Having 5 of 12 members of the cabinet women will show that the NDP doesn't follow the Liberal/Tory tradition of having a 'token' female in cabinet since they've had their histories of being male bastions.

Brian Skabar could become Government Whip, or perhaps Deputy Speaker.

JaneyCanuck JaneyCanuck's picture

I think Skabar as a former senior civil servant may look like he is not up to it but I have a feeling he knows more about running a govt than mot and would make a good cabinet Minister. Maybe not a major one but as I was trying to sleep last night (I still am in a OMG state of mind, lol), I thought, Good Grief, I forgot THE most two partisanly political portfolios- Transportation (ir roads, roads and construction and more roads, esp in rural areas so that has to be someone from outside metro - maybe a Frank Corbett or Clarrie?) and Supply and Service. Those two need someone familiar with how the leg works, the estimates and all of those fun things. So, a veteran. Supply and Services is even a good place for Epstein or Michelle Raymond. Then there is justice and while Graham Steele almost certainly will be Finance- if he wants it, both the two just mentioned are lawyers. Other lawyers incl Dexter himself and Landry, the new mbr from Pictou. So maybe Epstein will be Justice Min as much as his heart is in environment or Michelle will be Justice or the premier will take that on?

I have a feeling he can say with much justification that while he anticipated a victory and promised a cabinet of 12, the size of the majority means that maybe the cabinet needs to be a little larger?

 

I understand what you mean re Health and Social/Community Services but it has worked fairly well in other provinces but you need a good Minister and Maureen could handle that - as one who teaches social work , has a PhD in the subject and also was health critic. And a good one. She often came to meetings of the Dal Women's Health Group or IWK affairs when she did not need to and that always impressed me. And had great questions or comments!

JaneyCanuck JaneyCanuck's picture

Oh, the Speaker needs to be someone conversant with legislative practices and it would be great to have a woman speaker! Becky Kent or Vicki Conrad or if not a woman, Mr Estabrooks? If he is not Min of Education or the aforementioned Supply and Services?

Hunky_Monkey

I think Darrell will have to break his 12 cabinet pledge now that there are so many regions and a larger caucus than initially predicted (I read where Dan O'Connor said Darrell mispoke on being 12?).  Even up to 15 would give him a lot more wiggle room to add geography/region, etc.

For example, someone mentioned Dartmouth won't get a cabinet seat because Darrell is from Cole Harbour.  Well, Dartmouth is a little different than Cole Harbour (just ask residents there lol)... so I suspect Marilyn More will be in cabinet.

He would be wise to put someone in from Lunenburg.  And then you have Shelburne and Queens.  All down the South Shore, but more than one MLA from that area should be in cabinet.  You then have newbies from Colchester and Cumberland.  And then the 3 MLA's from the Pictou region.  And then Parent or Jennex should be there as well being from the Valley.  And of course Cape Breton.

Tough task.

JaneyCanuck JaneyCanuck's picture

Parent? Mark? That is the only Parent and while he may be a nice guy (do not really know him tho met him once I think, lol), he is a Tory who was defeated in the Valley. Do we want him in the cabinet now? (Kidding) I know it can be hard to keep tabs on all the nnames and we all make mistakes. I am just kidding! Do you mean Skabar? Since Cumberland clearly MUST have an MLA and I do think, with Darrell's moderate ways, he is likely to go with the experienced retiredcivil servant even if I do think Gary would really help shore up a certain base in the party - those who wonder where the anti-poverty plank was for ex? 

Hunky_Monkey

Opps... LOL  I meant Morton.  Morton or Jennex from the Valley.

And Skabar should be somewhere too of course.

I think Dan was correcting Darrell who had said the cabinet would be made up of 12 plus himself.  Dan said Darrell mis-spoke and meant to say the cabinet would be 12 -- including Darrell -- as promised during the campaign.

 

Hunky_Monkey

Even worse lol

Fidel

My local newz rag's editor claims it's a Liberal paper, and they have zero coverage of the Nova Scotia election. Nothing next to nil and nada. They were all over the Liberal Party win in BC though. Frackin Liberals, I've had it up to here with them.

moriarty

Skabar's INAC experience makes him a great candidate for Aboriginal Affairs, he's also a social worker, and of course he did manage a department worth over $100 million for Health Canada.  There's also his gas tax harmonization near the NB border policy that would look great being fulfilled from an appropriate cabinet position.

However, I hope Brian considers that hanging on to Cumberland North means being a "constituency guy", I just hope he can balance that with a cabinet portfolio.

Yes... Lets convince Dexter to break his promise of a small cabinet of 12!!! Let's convince Dexter to break all of his promises so that in 4 or 5 years we can put this unforunate error behind us and go back to one of the real governing parties:-)

babbler 8

My guess at cabinet, which of course will be wildly off.

 

Cabinet:

Darrell Dexter: Premier

Graham Steele: Finance

Frank Corbett: Energy/Envirnonment

Maureen MacDonald: Labour/Social Services

Clarrie MacKinnon: Fisheries

Brian Skabar: Health

Pam Birdsall: Econ/Rural Dev

Ramona Jennex: Transportation

Howard Epstein: Justice

Percy Paris: Education

John MacDonell: Agriculture

Lenore Zann: Tourism/Culture

 

Other Positions:

Leonard Preyra  - Speaker

Marilyn More - Caucus Chair

Gordie Gosse - Whip

 

babbler 8

This was hard, so many great MLAs, so few cabinet positions.

Pennywise

Who is Dan O'Connell? His name draws strong reactions....

moriarty

Dan O'Connor is Darrell's Chief of Staff

 

babbler 8:  Skabar for Health?  As a Cumberland Norther I can say that would be bittersweet.  A great portfolio, fantastic in fact, but demanding.  And we'd need Brian to be a good constiuent MLA to hang on to the seat.

alisea

Yes, it's a 12-person cabinet, including the Premier.

I have NO idea who will be in Cabinet, nor would I presume to speculate. This is going to be Darrell's most important decision, one that will set the tone and pace of this new government, and it's something that a great deal of care and thought is going to be devoted to.

However, I would suspect that, given that there are 19 seasoned MLAs who are already very familiar with a number of departments and issues, that Cabinet will be largely drawn from the veterans. Our Caucus has done a fabulous job in budget estimates, question period, bill debates (whenever the House actually sat, which was a rarity), and has dominated the Legislature's standing committees for years now. Regional issues notwithstanding, I think the first NDP Cabinet has to play on those strengths.

We have 12 new, keen, bright, committed members. Let them learn the ropes, get solidly entrenched in their constituencies, get a sense of the workings of government, before throwing them into the lions den of a Cabinet.

And now the claws come out...
