Liberal Party is winning. Baozon90 (talk) 00:47, 22 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Baozon90: until the final results are published, that isn't really helpful. Thanks for your contributions though. I have tagged the article as being edited to avoid any more edit conflicts. --DannyS712 (talk) 00:52, 22 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

1 seat so far. Baozon90 (talk) 02:07, 22 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]


A few notes for the reviewer:

  • Results table: New seats based on The Guardian, old seats based on Canadian House of Commons party standings at dissolution, gain and loss based on simple math. The house of commons site will likely be updated to reflect the new distributions, but archived at
  • Explanation of "Member of Parliament" = "MP" is unsourced, but should be common knowledge. I included it so that I could use "MP" in the table notes. Otherwise, info about chamber size can be found at The Guardian'
  • Oldest source (CBC in September) used for background on election being called by Trudeau

@Pi zero: Checked the official "unofficial results" from Elections Canada - 157 is the current reported value. Added that as a source, and resubmitting --DannyS712 (talk) 16:51, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Review of revision 4524677 [Not ready][edit]

@Pi zero: there isn't anything interactive, but in the top right corner of the map is the total count of seats for each party --DannyS712 (talk) 20:17, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@DannyS712: No, there is nothing in the top right corner for me. I have two different browsers installed. I have tried everything I know of to try with either. I cannot get anything other than a totally unlabeled, inert pattern of blocks of colors. --Pi zero (talk) 20:37, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Pi zero: ... I can email you the PDF that I got from the site - can you email me so I have your address? Also, I note that, after downloading the PDF, it took a few minutes for the content other than the map to load - maybe wait a bit? --DannyS712 (talk) 20:40, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@DannyS712: A few minutes?? --Pi zero (talk) 20:44, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Pi zero: woops, less than a minute; sorry, meant that figuratively. Are you willing to take my word for it that the data is there for now? // do you want to email me? --DannyS712 (talk) 20:46, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@DannyS712: I've had the pdf open in both browsers for at least ten minutes (each). They're not going to change.

If I can't access it, there are others who can't access it. Preferably we'd provide information so everyone can access it. Surely you can find somewhere else that it's accessible, either on the EC site or somewhere else that explicitly says it's getting its info from EC? (I believe I could, hunting it down ought to be a matter of finding the right search parameters for DuckDuckGo, but that's not my place in the role of independent reviewer.) --Pi zero (talk) 21:09, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Pi zero: can you continue reviewing the rest while I look for another (credible, not paywalled) source for those numbers? --DannyS712 (talk) 21:16, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Pi zero: nevermind, done - --DannyS712 (talk) 21:20, 23 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
