Oxford at Richmond

London, Ontario, Canada.

Red = Liberal
Orange = New Democrat
Green = Green

I just realized this fits the description of many of my photos made by rdhinmn two days ago: divided into two by a strong line, like the bus shelter post, with very different cityscapes on either side. I must look into Bob's description further.

It's not hard to see who has the biggest campaign budget ...

Your point of view is just great!!

John FitzGerald replied to Leon_Vienna:

Thanks, Leon. The Greens spent most of their campaign budget attempting a failed leadership coup. So tiny signs, and a national leader who hasn't campaigned outside Toronto, where she lives.

They certainly brighten up the typical bland Canadian cities, Dinesh.

John FitzGerald replied to MaggsMep:

Thanks, Mags. The election is September 20. At the moment it looks as if we will have another minority government, which would be fine by me.

I hadn't realised you have a coming election there. I winder if (going by the colour) the young lady has New Democrat bags! :-)

John FitzGerald replied to tiabunna:

I can assuage your curiosity, George. She's carrying Madjack bags. Madjack is a flavoured lager (I haven't had a drink in over 40 years but the idea alone still makes me recoil in disgust). She may have something else in the bags, I suppose. The New Democrats are the beer-drinking party (Liberals = white wine, Conservatives = Crown Royal, Bloc Québécois = caribou [red wine, spirits, maple syrup]., Greens = cider, People's Party of Canada = Five Star rye), but I don't know that NDP members would accept Madjack as beer.

tiabunna replied to John FitzGerald:

I'm with you re the flavoured lager, John, that's in the same territory as flavoured coffee. FWIW we also have elections coming at some time soon. Essentially a two horse race, Labor (US spelling) = beer/red wine, Liberals = conservatives = champagne.

John FitzGerald replied to tiabunna:

I'd never noticed the ALP used the American spelling, George. Maybe I just assumed any news I read about it was written by Americans. I think there's a lot to say in favour of the -or ending, but having been writing -our for close to 70 years it's become automatic.

It's interesting your Liberals are conservatives. According to Bloomberg News, Canadian Liberals are "hardheaded socialists" ("hardheaded" being a compliment).

And I agree with you about flavoured coffee.

tiabunna replied to John FitzGerald:

I can't find a clear reason "why", though there is a suggestion is was the influence of the American Labor movement, but it seems the spelling was "our" in 1908, but changed to "or" in 1912.

Will Trudeau win? Are Liberals really Conservatives? If so, isn't that kind of Crazyville?

I, too, am a member of the NON-flavored coffee club. I don't drink beer anymore, but I would be equally opposed to flavored beer. Oooh, I can't even think about it...

John FitzGerald replied to Diane Putnam:

By American standards not even Canadian Conservatives are conservative, Diane. Their platform is somewhat to the left of your Democratic (sic) party.

There may well be a minority government again, so the New Democratic Party would decide who becomes prime minister.

I'm afraid we'll eventually have flavoured chanpagne.
