NS election

While not always a perfect indicator, one thing I find that helps determine election results is candidates. Much like comparing the number of lawn signs, I find comparing the speed which a party reaches a full-slate to help determine it's level of support in the coming election.

At the time of the writing, the parties have the following number of candidates:

NDP - 42
PC - 29*
Lib - 28
Grn - 15*

more to come.

* = from Wikipedia, as their website has yet to list the number.

BC election

Added a pre-debate environics poll.

BCL - 59
NDP - 26

We expect the NDP to be up a bit following the next poll
