A Republic is definitely out of the question. I was even hard pressed to do an elected GG or Senate, but I wanted to try something new, something nobody has tried yet. Trust me on this, some very interesting people will become Governor General.Not a fan of either, but curious to see where this goes. Obviously some Liberal doesn't think a de jure republic will pass constitutional muster.
Horner thinks he can be PM three times? Idiot...
Turns out he could!Never underestimate Horner!
But yeah, I fully expect a Trudeau Majority. Very interesting, I don't think I've ever seen an infobox series or list or anything depicting Trudeau as PM this late in the 1980's.
If an excellent writer such as yourself enjoys it, I must be doing something right. Thanks for the supportI must say, good work on the series, CanadianTory. Very interesting to see the direction Canada has taken since you started it..
Even I reacted to this when I first read it. And I doubt this is going to be any less so ITTL, what with his father being PM.That said, is Martin the sort who would defect to a new party? Unless his relationship with Manley is worse somehow... But still, he seems too "establishment" to me for him to set up a new party.
Considering Martin was effectively robbed the leadership (at least in his mind) and polling suggested that his party was tanking in the polls, it's not that far a stretch to believe that Martin would grow a pair and ditch the party. Some people may disagree with my decision, but you can't say it wasn't interesting.Even I reacted to this when I first read it. And I doubt this is going to be any less so ITTL, what with his father being PM.
And he was able to lock up the wrinkled, squinty white guy vote. Always a token demographic in any election.Warner Mendoza: holding dual records in Margin of Electoral Victory and Size of Kidney Stone Passed.
They're both major medial moguls who got involved with center-right politicians?Why does Mendoza remind me of Silvio Berlusconi?
Ah, good catch. I made this a while back when I was planning on going a different route for the 1970s. I'll edit that.Very good stuff from the Canadians.
Grit: Sad to see Trudeau go, but an original take on him. A minor nitpick: Trudeau's info box says that his first spell as LotO was under Wagner, instead of Eagleson as ITTL.
Tory: I was wasn't expecting all those dramatic constitutional reforms from Iona. That said, is Martin the sort who would defect to a new party? Unless his relationship with Manley is worse somehow... But still, he seems too "establishment" to me for him to set up a new party. I bet electoral reform will still get shot down here...
