Just to follow-up on the election post: If you’re curious about Canadian politics (which seems not to be about Quebec for a change) I’ve found two blogs that may be of interest:
First, Greg Morrow who is a graduate student in Urban Studies at UCLA tracks developments with a focus on electoral trends and electoral systems at DemocraticSPACE. With the prospect of a Canadian general election in November, Morrow promises a dedicated site about this.
Second, Matthew Shugart who is a professor of Political Science at the UCSD writes about electoral systems, horticulture and baseball at Fruits and Votes. Shugart’s Canada posts are here – he basically covers all of the world’s electoral systems.
Finally, an op-ed piece by my colleague Henry Milner about the failed attempt to introduce MMP in Ontario.
