Algoma - Manitoulin - Kapuskasing

Thanks to MP Carol Hughes for mentioning my name in C-32 debate

The following is a letter I sent this morning. Thanks to Kevin McArthur for letting me know yesterday that my name was mentioned.

Mrs. Carol Hughes, MP for Algoma—Manitoulin—Kapuskasing,

The 57 Ridings that can Change Election's Outcome

Hill Times journalists Abbas Rana, Simon Doyle and Harris MacLeod have assembled a list of 57 ridings in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec, where the parties won or lost by a margin of about five per cent or less in the last federal election. This is a superset of what Michael Geist called the Copyright MPs which won their riding by 10 percent or less in the last election and their riding is home to a university.
