Be careful with your edit-warring[edit]

MacKay likes the picture that is currently on his article. I can understand why people like you you want to make him look bad, but take you hatred for him elsewhere than Wikipedia! The photo in the sidebox is here to stay. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.48.78.19 (talk) 11:51, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Be careful[edit]

Be careful about your anti-Mackay edits. They are not welcome on Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.48.78.19 (talk) 11:53, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Wow, 70.48.78.19, that seems like a pretty aggressive attitude. It almost seems as if you are threatening User:Tholden28. I'm going to look within the rules to see if that is grounds for WP:BLOCK. Bkissin (talk) 22:34, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Sorry/Thanks[edit]

Hey User:Tholden28. I wanted to apologize for asking you to find another source about Cotler's announcement he wouldn't run again. I had not heard this new development, and the last I had heard, he was intending to run again, at least that's what was assumed in the uproar over the polling calls in his riding. Perhaps I may have let my own personal politics cause a knee-jerk reaction to the edit, and for that, I'm sorry.

Thanks for finding a more up-to-date article, though. Bkissin (talk) 22:43, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Why are you removing sources from the provincial riding articles? EncyclopediaUpdaticus (talk) 15:27, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Just because other article don't have them is no reason to remove them from these articles. I consider it an improvement. All riding articles should be so comprehensive. EncyclopediaUpdaticus (talk) 15:33, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
I don't mind the formatting changes, but please leave the notes in place. They place changes in members in historical context. EncyclopediaUpdaticus (talk) 15:49, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

New MPs[edit]

If you can show that the four people elected last night have been sworn in as members of parliament, then you can add the categories and templates stating that. I believe they have not been sworn in yet, so they are not yet MPs. prove me wrong if you can, and if you can't, then please stop adding incorrect information to Wikipedia. Thanks.

Reverting[edit]

Tholden28, You may not be aware of this, so please read Unacceptable reversions. All of us editors should be courteous and respectful to one another (particularly to those who are much more experienced and to those who are inexperienced). I'm not going to fight you on this (...this time). --Musdan77 (talk) 05:05, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Quebec election[edit]

I know the Liberals won the election, but since Couillard hasn't become premier yet, is it fair to say he got 'elected' on the article right now? I'm not going to take it down, but I was just wondering... -- Kndimov (talk) 02:16, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I just realized this wasn't you, but the person in between your edits. -- Kndimov (talk) 02:19, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Just a reminder to wait until the media have declared somebody elected. Manon Massé has an extremely narrow lead right now, but with two boxes still out — and guess what those boxes are? the advance vote — it's not at all safe for us to assume she's going to win yet. We don't make our own predictions by looking at who's in the lead at some indeterminate point in time; we wait until an external source has declared them the victor. Bearcat (talk) 03:46, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

LOL[edit]

Looks like both of us were writting a summary for the Quebec election intro at the same time. Since you got yours in first, I'll get rid of mine and merge anything that's worth merging. Redverton (talk) 16:42, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Just a quick note - it isn't the PQ's worst seat showing since 1976. The PQ got just 23 seats in 1985, and 29 seats in 1989. But it is indeed the second-worst vote showing since 1970. Redverton (talk) 16:49, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Invitation to discuss opinion polling matter[edit]

Hi Tholden28,

As a fellow regular contributor to opinion polls sections on various Canadian election pages, would you care to weigh in on this debate over whether to show "all voters" or "likely voters" results for polls in the ongoing Ontario election? Cheers. -Undermedia (talk) 17:30, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

41st Manitoba general election infobox[edit]

Hi Tholden28. Rather than revert, I'm just wondering what the justification is for adding the Green Party of Manitoba to the infobox for 41st Manitoba general election, being that it wasn't done for past elections. Initially, I wondered if they were doing particularly well in the polls, but it seems there's only one to go on, hence why I'm curious. Thanks, Graham11 (talk) 03:50, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, completely missed the fact that it was in the infobox already. But thanks for the informative response! Graham11 (talk) 19:08, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

Heya. Just wanted to say thanks for adding all those decent photos of late to a variety of political articles. For one thing, I was pretty tired of seeing that old grainy image of Preston Manning - nice to finally have a couple of decent photos. Good job. Redverton (talk) 02:38, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Saturday Night Live (season 40)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Saturday Night Live (season 40) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

It is a little premature to have an article for a season that has not started. Maybe when it is sooner then it can be created, but right now there seems to be no notable information. On WP:TVEP, it states "A topic is presumed to be notable if it has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject," which this has not.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. SAJ (T) 01:17, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Arnold Chan[edit]

Regarding your recent dispute about the "assumed office" date on Arnold Chan, I just wanted to confirm that your understanding is correct — we do indeed use the date of the election or byelection itself, since that's the date that Parliament's website gives. But I just wanted to let you know that if you ever get involved in a similar dispute again, you don't need to rely on the purely anecdotal evidence of what we did for John Dahmer — there's actually an explicit consensus statement, already written at Wikipedia:CANSTYLE#Terms in office, which completely backs you up on it. Hope that helps a bit. Bearcat (talk) 20:59, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Future Canadian Ridings[edit]

Hi. It looks like you created a number of articles for the future Canadian ridings (including University—Rosedale). I wonder as to why you would use "—" vs. "-" (em-dash vs. regular dash) in the name of the new ridings? I recognize the fact that Elections Canada report seems to be using em-dashes as well. But I feel it is somehow a violation of WP:TSC or general English rules for em-dash. What do you think? --Truther2012 (talk) 21:04, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for response. Btw, it has been explained to me as per Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(Canada-related_articles)#Ridings --Truther2012 (talk) 13:04, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Doug Ford[edit]

Apostrophe does not make a plural[edit]

I notice that for example on the byelections article, you keep saying the "party's" - the party's what? Unless you actually mean to say "parties", which is the plural form of "party"? GBC (talk) 02:36, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

I just wonder the colour representing Forces et Démocratie[edit]

On the twenty-third of October, Mr. Fortin spoke the first time as the leader of Forces et Démocratie around 10:45am about the happened attack in Ottawa. That's also the first time the colour of his renewed "MP box" (you know, every time a MP speak, there's a box showing his/her name, the riding he/she represent also the party he/she belongs) revealed and it sort of green. I just wonder should the colour representing Forces et Démocratie change from blue to green? Merci—An Macanese 09:53, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for a late reply however I think there is a more specific proof what is the colour Forces et Démocratie chose. See the official seating plan of the house of commons of Canada. I personally believe that the colour representing Forces et Démocratie should be green (is it MediumSeaGreen #3CB371 ?) since it was adopted by the hoc. Merci—An Macanese 15:07, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks of your speedy reply. Well, I'm kind of puzzled if you say so. The colour of a party's logo may vary (I mean the accurate HEX) and how about those independent members? I think we should follow the hoc because the parliament have to get the approval from the party to use certain colour and it is the best way to know what one's party have decided their official colour beside informing the party directly.Merci—An Macanese 17:51, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
BTW on the official page, the CPC uses #002395, NDP uses #FF5800, LPC uses #ED2E38, BQ uses #0088CE, GP uses #427730, Forces et Démocratie uses #01AF58 while those independent MPs get #606860.

Glenn Thibeault[edit]

Regarding your edits about Thibeault being an independent when he resigned. I too saw it on his Parliament bio, but without it appearing on the Parliament standings, and third party coverage, it could just be a website glitch or error. I think it is best that Thibeault be reported as resigning as an NDP. 117Avenue (talk) 03:51, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
