For the province it's looking as though it will be a battle between the PCs and NDP.

I'm seeing a lot of them. A few PC signs here and there but not easy to find. And the Liberal ones are a very rare find.

Has anybody had any of the candidates come to your residence? I haven't yet.

I had some poor woman who could barely walk drop off a Bission flyer this past weekend. I threw said flyer, promptly, into the blue bin.

Nobody here still.

For the province it is certainly now a battle between the PCs and NDP. They are both tied in the polls right now.

I've run into a few people in town who think that Genier will beat Bisson and I just laughed. It won't be close. Especially now if the NDP is doing well and gaining support across the province.

You never know. I could see Timmins and even here go full on blue and shock everyone, while the rest of the province goes orange. [1laff

I really hope not mind you.

That would be quite ironic but I don't see any indication of that being a possibility.

If the NDP does win the election then Timmins will have an MPP who will be a cabinet minister. My guess is that Bisson would be Minister of Transportation.

He could be the Minister of Sanctuaries.

This province is doomed.

Folks who drink the kool-aid of the party they blindly follow (and that could be any of them), have been saying that since July 1, 1867.

Yet we are still here going along 151 years later.

Also, Doug Ford....**** you, you aren't "my friend".

Both Rob Ford and Doug Ford while on city council supported Toronto being a sanctuary city. I don't think it's really anything different than we have today.

Poor Toronto, already over run but that's just a City, not an entire Province.

Over run? I have no idea what that means.

Toronto is doing very well, in fact better than ever.

I think he means people from other countries.

If they come here and become citizens legally, what's wrong with that?

I don't think becoming a sanctuary province means dealing with legals.

This is from the NDP website.

Cities across Ontario have declared themselves to be sanctuary cities, where people can access basic services without fear, regardless of their immigration status. This is the decent, humane thing to do.

We believe strongly in the rules governing immigration and citizenship, but we will never withhold basic life-saving services from undocumented people. We will ensure that anyone can visit an Emergency Room without penalty. And we will end the practice of holding federal immigration detainees in provincial correctional facilities.


Interesting read here too.

Polls are showing that the NDP may possibly sweep all of Northern Ontario. Some are saying that the NDP candidate has a chance in Nipissing (North Bay). The NDP will need to win places like that if they are to get the most seats.

We voted today. It was different this time, it wasn't the usual little piece of paper and golf pencil. It was a full sized sheet in a folder-like thing and you used a marker.

We have 5 candidates in our riding, the 4 usual suspects and one independent who got zero mentions anywhere in local media or lists.
