The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Poll Vault: Day 10

Two from SES/CPAC: the 3-day rolling poll shows the Liberals at 36%, Conservatives at 25%, the NDP at 22% (the highest I've seen the NDP in any publicly released Canadian voter intention survey in, oh, quite a long time), and the Bloc at 13%, which roughly works out to an ass-kicking 50% in Quebec. The Greens are holding at 5% nationwide.

SES also has put together a 5-day cumulative poll with a regional breakdown. Notable: BC is as tight as a {insert corny, shopworn, or crude expression here), with all three parties within five points of each other in a subsample with a 9 percent margin of error. Liberals way down in Ontario to 39%, Conservatives at 32% (nearly a statistical tie), with the NDP up nine points to 25%.

Make of it what you will.
