And We're Off

Things are off and running in the search for Canada's Best Premier. Since Premiers hate a strong central government, we're going the asymmetrical federalism route for round one, and ten separate blogs are each using a technique of their own choosing to find our ten contenders. The first round should be done by Sunday, July 29th. I'll be providing periodic updates over the next dozen days. For now, these provinces have started things off:

-MMP advocate Mark Greenan is going the STV route for the PEI battle, selecting 12 Premiers (6 Liberals and 6 Tories)

-Voting is now open for BC's Best Premier (perhaps "BC's least worst Premier" would be a better title)

-Louis Robichaud, the beneficiary of a facebook campaign, has taken the early lead in the New Brunswick poll.

-Mike Harris has the early lead over favourites Oliver Mowat and Bill Davis in the preliminary round of Ontario voting.


I've got blogs lined up for the other six province - expect polls to be posted there within the next few days.


UPDATE: Manitoba is off and running, with a video and everything.

And Saskatchewan has a poll up.

  • Correction Dan, I'm an electoral reform advocate. I'd support MMP, STV or any other crazy electoral system a representative group of average folks select.

    Anything other than our outdated, undemocratic first-past-the-post system.

  • At least BC never had Devine.

    ...sad that's the best argument i've got.

  • Mike Harris should definitely win for Ontario. He turned that province around with the change revolution after the NDP destroyed it in the early 90's.

    So you think your funny. Prove it.
