If you’re confused about who is running in your provincial riding this coming election, do yourself a favour and check out The Election Prediction Project. The Ontario 2003 section of the project is filled with information for each riding, including results from the last election, predictions for the upcoming election, census information, as well as feedback from people living in that riding.
While I am wary of the predictions The Election Prediction Project offers, the comments section alone is reason to visit the site. Too often do Canadians forget that they do not vote for a party or a premier or prime-minister, but for a representative who will voice their concerns in Parliament. The comments section offers a glimpse into what those running in your riding may be like, their past successes and failures, and how well others feel they would represent the constituency.
