[BRIEF NOTE] Ontario (and Davenport) Vote, 2011

What has become of Ontario?

Ontario Votes 2011, 11:42

A screenshot from the CBC Ontario Votes 2011 site, this shows the distribution of seats in Ontario. Broadly speaking, the Liberals and NDP share northern Ontario and the cities of southern and eastern Ontario (Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, Windsor) while the Progressive Conservatives have suburban, exurban, and rural areas. Since the screenshot was made, the Liberals have gained another seat, for a total of 51. This places them short of a majority, though this may change.

What of my riding of Davenport?

Davenport Votes 2011

This screenshot, taken from the CBC here, shows the outcome of the election in my south-central Toronto riding of Davenport, marked in a dark orange to show the NDP victory. Following on the NDP victory in this same riding in the May federal election, the percentage results show continued growth (from 2007) of the NDP share of the vote and a collapse of the Green vote to below its 2003 levels.
