    Hello, for no reason I just wanted to make a random post on GBA Temp. On November 23rd, my father lost the Northwest Territories Legislative Assembly election by 91 votes.

    It was 491-400. He was not one of those filler candidates as he did serve 12 years in his riding. I won't take this loss to the heart as not very many people win their 4th term, even Harper. Anyway a couple factors did play a role in the loss like voter fatigue, the Liberal party and the mood for change.

    The Northwest Territories is one of the 2 Canadian provinces that do not have parties like Liberal, Conservative or NDP. Instead all candidates are independents.

    PS. If you do not know where the Northwest Territories is, here it is:[​IMG]

    Based on about 5 minutes of Google-fu, would he happen to be Robert Hawkins?

    This is the most devastating election for incumbents in the territory's history.

    I want to like the original post because it is really cool that someone her has a parent that is an actual politician, but wouldn't that mean that I like the fact he lost?

    I lean towards logical politics, which happen to lean more towards Liberal ideals for me. As for the for the Party I support, I support the Pirate Party.

    The Pirate Party of Canada will Never win a seat in the House of Commons (Canadian version of the US Capitol).

    Yellowknife Centre is difficult to win if you are an incumbent running for your 4th term. I can tell you that I would be more pissed if I was the person that got 225-229.
