I have created this topic as one central thread to discuss the behaviour of the UBC Prediction Market for the 2013 BC election.
The NDP Socialist Caucus (SC) is proud to present the Spring 2013 edition of Turn Left/Virez a gauche, the official magazine of the SC, in preparation for the upcoming federal convention in Montreal.
It features articles by Sid Ryan, Dru Ola Jay, Yves Engler, Richard Fidler and SC activists. Issues discussed include First Nations struggles, pipelines and the environment, fair trade, remembering Hugo Chavez, the "Quebec Question" and the NDP, a tribute to Peter Kormos, Canadian foreign policy, keeping socialism in the NDP, and much more.
This week I decided to look at whether supporters of various political parties had different news consumption patterns and compare them to undecided voters. To do this I'm going back to the Canadian Election Study 2011 data. Obviously, things may have changed since then, but this is the most current raw data source I have for this question.
The first question I thought I'd look at is how much time people spent consuming news (Question 81 in the Post Election Survey(PES)) broken down by party self-identification.
Charts and the rest of the post can be found here.
Anyway, here's my opinion: cool.
But hey, Joe, "Something Better Change", okay? ;)
Is anyone else seeking that nomination?
Well it appears that the Tories have crossed yet another line.
In response to a MP Hélène Laverdière’s December blog post in the Huff Post, somebody at the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) decided to post the Huff Post response by Julian Fantino, Minister of International Cooperation, directly on the CIDA website. There was also another partisan post on the CIDA website attacking the Liberals that stated “Liberals make promises,
Conservatives get results - Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)”.
