“Atlantic Canada is shaping up to be an interesting turf war to watch on election night.
Once a mix of blue and red, with a few specks of orange, all 32 seats across the region’s four provinces went to the Liberal Party in the red wave of 2015.
Four years later, that’s unlikely to happen again, according to Howard Ramos, a political sociologist and professor at Dalhousie University.
“It’s a region that’s definitely up for grabs,” Ramos said. “I think that probably in a worst-case scenario, the Liberals could lose as many as half of the seats that they gained and in a best-case scenario, lose just a few.””
