    Hudak resigning would've probably helped the PCs, sure, but Kennedy, at least when he was running for the leadership, was by far the most popular Liberal among the province as a whole. He was the only one at the time who put the Liberals ahead of the PCs - and that was during a time when the Liberals were in third place and the mid to low 20s. Obviously campaigns matter, but I suspect he'd win a majority (and in particular do better in Toronto, particularly winning both Parkdale and York South).

    I based it off a Forum poll that showed Kennedy would win a minority at that time if he was leader, but you're right he would do much better.

    NBA Box from that same TL I posted about at the top of the page. Magic is viewed as one of the three greatest NBA players ever ITTL, with Jordan, Kareem (who has a decade long duel with Magic's Pistons, becoming an American myth), Bill "RINGS" Russell and Gary Payton tossed around as pre-2000 players that are on his level.

    Prince Charles nearly died on March 10, 1988, in an avalanche in Klosters, Switzerland.

    What if he had been killed?

    This is the first time a Prince of Wales has died since Frederick, Prince of Wales, in 1751. It is the first time a reigning monarch has had an adult child predecease them since Prince Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, in 1900. Prince William wouldn't likely be given the title Prince of Wales until his grandmother believes he is ready. Diana becomes the Dowager Princess of Wales until William marries or if Diana re-marries (which is highly likely.) I have no idea what title she will she be granted if she re-marries. @Jonathan.

    Charle's death will rattle the U.K. and most of the Commonwealth and all attention will be on the extremely young 26-year-old widowed Diana. The funeral will be the largest seen in Europe since Churchill and nothing comparable until the death of Elizabeth II herself.

    It is also worth noting that Fergie, The Duchess of York, was two months pregnant at the time.

    The Danic General election, 2016, was held on 1 August, 2016. All 158 members of the Chamber of Representatives and 54 members of the Senate were up for reelection. The incumbent Christian Democrats, led by Senator Brian Sandoval, suffered a minor downswing against the centre-left Civil League for Dana and the populist Mormon Reform party. The CDPD won a plurality of the vote in the Chamber of Representatives election, but lost to CLD in the senate election by just over 50,000 votes. Mormon Reform jumped from two seats in the Chamber of Representatives to six. Despite winning by such a small margin in the Chamber of Representatives election, the CDPD kept control of a majority of the seats, leading some to suspect vote tampering in key districts, particularly in the area just north of Sacramento. Additionally, the CDPD managed to maintain control of the Senate without winning the most votes. Suspicions about the legitimacy of the vote were bolstered by the poor performance of the CDPD in the presidential election occurring the same year, in which the party failed to even qualify for the second round.

    The concurrent presidential election was held in two rounds, on 29 July and 2 August, 2016. Senator Gavin Newsom, a member of CLD representing the Great Bay district, faced representative Wally Herger of the Mormon Reform party. Newsom won in a landslide, earning 61 percent of the popular vote to Herger's 38. During and after the election, Newsom's victory was noted by many as "the end of the right-populist movement on the west coast," as the Mormon Reform party began to fall rapidly in the polls following August 2.

    Newsom ran on a platform of "openness," supporting the re-opening of the border with California, the decriminalization and possible legalization of marijuana, and the upholding of supreme court decisions and popular referendums that gave legal backing to abortion and gay marriage. Herger, on the other hand, ran with the goal of regulating labor rights, tightening border security, and fighting "political correctness," a goal which Newsom and much of the CLD criticized as petty.

    Newsom held a significant lead in almost every pre-election poll, but the race between Herger and the CDPD's Darryl Glenn was much closer, the two trading places for third and second roughly four times throughout the pre-election race. The day of the second round, Newsom won as expected. Shortly after, Newsom gave his input on the vote-tampering rumors, voicing his suspicion that such allegations were true. He then later confronted Chinese president Xu Qiliang at a meeting of the G20 in Berlin, stating during a press conference that he "knew" that Qiliang had ordered the conducting of cyberattacks on Danic voter rolls to push Herger to the second round and to ensure that the CDPD, whose members in the legislature had made favorable indirect comments towards China, would win in both houses. Seven of the major Danic intelligence agencies, the ODI and DanaID among them, have, as of October 3, 2016, officially confirmed Newsom's statements publicly, leading to a Chinese-directed heavy tariff act being passed with the support of the entirety of CLD and parts of the CDPD.

    -------------------------------
    Loretta Sánchez (born January 7, 1960), is a Californian politician serving as the current President of California and leader of the California Socialist Party. Sánchez first held public office as minister for Labor and Union Affairs under president Eduardo Bours, after making several unsuccessful attempts to get elected to the National Assembly. After Bours' defeat at the hands of Enrique Peña Nieto in 2012, and her ensuing resignation, Sánchez was out of public service for nearly three years before launching her bid for president in late 2014.

    Sánchez won the 2015 presidential election against Nieto by a razor-thin margin of 12,000 votes nationwide, triggering a recount that later reaffirmed Sánchez as the winner. Since then, Sánchez has opened California back up to communication with Dana, half-jokingly describing Danic president Gavin Newsom as her "best friend." Sánchez has also taken a tougher stance on China, placing tariffs on it and its allies, like Korea and India, while strengthening connections with key allies like Mexico, Louisiana, and Hawai'i.

    On the domestic front, Sánchez has made significant progress for progressive social and economic causes, giving a boost to the previously slumped Californian economy with her "Economic Fairness Program." Sánchez's presidency has been marked by significant labor and minority rights legislation, with a significant focus on preventing discrimination against European and African-Californians.

    Interesting idea and thanks for the shout out.

    Going by precedents, Diana, would be styled as "Her Royal Highness The Dowager Princess of Wales" until she remarries, which widowed at 26 would be seen appropriate, this depends highly who it is she is allowed to marry by appointment of the queen.

    I highly doubt she will be allowed to marry Dodi Fayed. I would imagine these marriages for her would be a member of a noble family:
    - Charles Gordon-Lennox, 11th Duke of Richmond, who recently divorced his wife.
    - Charles Beauclerk, Earl of Burford, heir to the Duke of St Albans is single although his

    As for the unborn daughter, I could see Andrew naming OTL Princess Beatrice as Charlotte in his brother's memory

    Thanks for your response!

    I’m wondering what happens to the relationship between the Queen and Diana and William and Harry and perhaps fighting over influence.

    I could see her being encouraged to remarry to a nobleman, but it might likely end in divorce.

    Might Andrew and Sarah aka Fergke become closer and avoid their separation and subsequent divorce?

    I assume meant to say "agreed to by the Senate [date] and by the House [date]" rather than "by the Senate and by the Senate"? The latter seems a little redundant...

    (Great box, very interesting, just a little nitpick...)

    Knowing Moynihan, he'd probably write some incredibly damaging white paper about the dysfunction of the Martian family or something.

    The 2017 Hawaiian Presidential Election was the twenty-ninth Presidential election of the Kingdom of Hawaii. There were two main issues that took precedence in this election. The first was the Honolulu affair, in which President Keanu met with controversial Columbian Prime Minister, Pierce Underwood, who had previously stated, during the 2014 election that Columbia "should have taken action in Hawaii", referring to the attempt by the British to seize the islands in 1879. This comment was largely seen as an unofficial endorsement of Columbian imperialism, due to the fact that the only major groups, such as the Columbia Party, who advocated for this intervention supported the annexation of Hawaii into Columbia.

    The second major issue was the Recession of 2015 which, despite the Hawaiian governments efforts, was unable to be stopped as quickly as hoped for, continuing into 2016 and then into 2017. This led to a distrust of the coalition between the Kikowaena and Nā Ku'una parties in the Hale Kūkākūkā as well as the administration of Kaemana Keanu. On July 1st, Mayor Apikalia Kapua of the party Nānā Pāpelika, won the Presidency by nearly twelve percent over Kaui Ekewaka and President Keanu respectively. The Nānā Pāpelika party would repeat this success in the Hale Kūkākūkā, securing a narrow majority of 41 seats (three seats over the 39 required for a majority) with the incumbent Nā Ku'una coming in a narrow second, with 18 seats and the Kikowaena in last with 16 seats. One independent candidate would be elected in Honolulu.

    This is set far enough in the future to not be current, I think. From my timeline ‘Scary Lou McDonald’, which the local deputy Lord Mayor dislikes.

    In 2033, America passes the 30th Amendment, requiring a national referendum within a month of any time that war is to be declared. In 2038, a highly militarized Sinn Féin-led Irish dictatorship declares war on the remainder of the United Kingdom, a state weakened by regional nationalism, a decade of bad economics, and a declining global standing. The UK decides to invoke Article V of the NATO Treaty.
    On October 29th 2038, America votes in the First National War Referendum.

    It effectively ends NATO, as the bedrock of the organization balks on its commitment.
